I have a DeLL XPS series machine. i7 3.4 ghz 8 core processor, Nvidia Geforce GTX 645 videocard. 8 gigs of ram. And Windows 7 64 bit OS. My Computer has been lagging even when playing games like The Sims 3...It should be able to destroy this game, yet it can play Max Payne 3 with little to no flaw. I've also noticed some skipping while playing Rift. I've noticed when I set my Computer into High Performance mode The Sims 3 will run better, but I'm concerned about the damage this does to the machine? My Computer is in my Attic with a Woodstove so it can sometimes get hot up here.. I was curious if anybody had any ideas?
