I have a i7-4770 with a gtx 770 and 8gb of 1600 ram. How is a game released in 2005 trouble for my computer. I mean I know there way better computers out there. But this computer was suppose to be average good.

Can't really throw hardware at a software problem.

Some roads you shouldn't go down because maps used to say there'd be dragons there. Now they don't, but that don't mean the dragons aren't there.

what do you mean?

I mean the lag most likely has nothing to do with your hardware and everything to do with the game's coding.

"lag starts to occur", that's such an open description. What frame rate is it running at?

ITT: TC thinks "lag" is a catch-all term.

It's a 9 year old game, not many people had 1920x1080 screens back then, so it's probably not a resolution which is supported out of the box.
