I recently upgraded my PC cause I thought it would help with the rotten lag in sims 3 but the game is almost unplayable. I deleted all my save data, reinstalled the game, updated it, cleaned the temp files, defragged, did disk cleanup, and the lag is still so rotten and animation so choppy that I can't even play the game. I was gonna buy the expansion but not till I figure this out.

Any suggestions for making the game run better? It even runs cruddy at low settings and Im not sure what to do....I went thru and updated all my drivers too.
That can't be the issue because I was playing Sims3 just fine with zero lag when it first came out. Something else has to be up with it. I havent played for a few months but I recently updated it with a new patch and now the game performance seems worse.
