Hello, I have a newer computer, iMac 27" SP3 Intel Core 2 Duo 3.06 GHz with 3 Gigs of RAM. ATI Radeon HD 4670 is my video card. I'm running XP on it through bootcamp. I'm having a very interesting situation. The computer runs newer games like Sins of a Solar Empire Trinity with very high resolutions. However, the most important game to play is Sim City 4, which came out way back in 2003.
I used to play it on almost full resolution on my old computer, with only 2 gigs of RAM, and a much much worse video card and only 2.8 Ghz, and it barely lagged.
I notice that it doesn't matter what resolution I play Sim City 4 on my newer computer, it seems to lag beyond toleration, even though I can play newer games very easily.
I've checked for updates on everything I can think of, hardware and software. Is there something I'm missing?
