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?

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

What is the GPU around? This is one heck of a system and should not get slowed down by anything you have.

This is a great system! It is not your components, either you have a virus or you need to update your drivers.

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