  1. I don't know how the game could possibly be lagging. What monitor resolution are you running? What is the usage on all of your components?
  2. The resolution which i am playing the game at is 1920 x 1080, the usage on the cpu is fluctuating between 26% and 36% whilst the memory is around 3.3gb of usage.

    Cheers mate
  3. What is the GPU around? This is one heck of a system and should not get slowed down by anything you have.
  4. This is a great system! It is not your components, either you have a virus or you need to update your drivers.
  5. Thanks for the replies, my GPU is saying that the memory usage is 392mb.

    I am currently running a virus scan, and what drivers would you recommend for the GPU an CPU?

    Thanks Alot
  6. Also do you recommend that i upgrade my motherboard? i mean it might be bottle necking wouldn't you think?

    thanks alot
  7. This isn't about your PC. The game itself isn't optimized very well.
