Sim city running slow

I downloaded SimCity digital version. When I play the game it runs slow and not smooth. All actions are a couple seconds behind and makes for difficult playing. I have a Hp Pavilon with a intel core processor. Windows 7 is the operating system. 

What do i do to fix this???

Get a new computer. Sorry but new games and not new computers (x2 with laptops if not more) do not go together.

Re: Sim city running slow

Unfortunately a 2 year old desktop is too old.   You might try to upgrade graphics card and add ram.  But the best advice would look to upgrade the pc, or run the game on low resolution.

Re: Sim city running slow

the only way i got this game to run at a decent speed was to change settings in the in game options.

simply turn down the lighting effects as low as possible (this in turn also lowers the shadow level), this unfortunately makes the game look like an 16Bit piece of carp but runs better,even though all my other graphics settings are set to max. this is really poor from EA as it looks nowhere near as good as anything advertised.
