Default Re: New PC build lagging

My copy of Windows has been verified as genuine so I don't think I'm doing anything illegal.
A legal copy is the not the same thing as using it illegally. An upgrade is supposed to be for just that - to "upgrade" that computer from a previous version of Windows. Therefore, to be legal, you must have had a [legal] previous version of Windows installed on that machine prior to installing the Windows 7 upgrade. You apparently did not. So while you have a legal copy of Windows, it appears you are using it illegally and you need to purchase a new license for that "new", and NOT "upgraded", machine.

I didn't have any problems with lag when I installed the game to the 2TB hard drive
But you did have problems with that drive when, "plug into the Intel controlled SATA III ports and the Marvell controlled SATA III ports with the same results (the Marvell had more lagging", right? So while your graphics controller may have good drivers, you still should check the motherboard maker's site for updated drivers.
