Sorry about that. The frame rate drops. Really not sure why said lag spike....
It happens usually when something is loading, like textures and what not. I know dead island was a little buggy when it came out, but i had everything se to high. Getting over 100 FPS. When i would be running around, the Frame rate would drop down to the 70's then 60's and you could really tell that it was alot worse. Then i put everything on medium. Still getting the same frame rate, but a little smoother. It would still do it tho.
I know my computer isnt a "beast" but it should be able to cut through this game. Atleast i thought it would be able to.
The power supply. Could that be the culprit? It was pretty cheap when i bought it (on sale)
