Exclamation Solved: Saints Row The Third Major Lag. Don't know why.
Last night I bought Saints Row The Third and it downloaded and was ready about 2hours ago, So I loaded up the game and it was practically unplayable, the lag was terrible.

But I also downloaded all the GTA's and I can run all of them fine, along with loads of other games, a few I can even run on ultra settings, but I can't even run Saints Row on the lowest settings, I know it's not because I have a 'bad computer' or anything like that because I went on YouTube and Someone has nearly everything the same as me in his computer build, but he can run the game on ultra settings, whilst I can't run the game on the lowest.

So does anyone have any idea to why this might be? or any fix at all? I think I have updated all my drivers, I just got the latest amd catalyst update and I am using directX 11.

I hope this can be fixed as I don't want to have just wasted my money on this game.

Any help at all would be great!

Does no body have any idea at all?! Would updating my BIOS or updating my ATI chipset on the motherboard do anything?

Come on, at least one person most have the same-ish problem? or at least an idea of how to fix it??
