You should be able to play this on medium or high settings at a good frame rate, your GPU is the biggest bottleneck however.

Hi all, I can max out this game no problem at 1080 but I had some occasional or sometimes frequent lagging/freezing everytime I try to rotate or panning the camera around?


What gives?

:O there must be a problem. Make sure there is no Windows Automatic Updates going on, and also, I find these sims games do not like high fps… they run on almost anything but they run the same on almost anything too XD…

Also don't run many other programs in the background, maybe your RAM is being maxed?
