    Hey guys I've got an issue that I'm stumped on figuring out. I've got an i5 2500k at 3.3 with a gtx 580 and 8 gig ram and 850 watt PSU. I'm playing BF3 on high settings at 60-80 fps, Skyrim on ultra at 70-100+ fps but yet in Saints Row 3 with everything maxed, I get 40-45 fps and its choppy and not enjoyable. I see vids online of others with gtx 580 and maybe an i7 2600k (very similar to mine) and they run the game 60-70 fps with butter smooth gameplay. I game at 1920x1080. Not sure why others can run it perfectly fine but i'm having issues here...I have the latest nvidia drivers. Just seems weird that the other 2 games play fine without issue but this one giving me fits...Any suggestions? Thanks guys.

    SR3 is poorly made and not so optimized for pc. so that's why

    But is there a reason why I can't run it maxed out when others can? I thought for sure I had put together a good rig with an i5 2500k and gtx 580.

    Their settings may not be as high.

    Effectively dear friend, you could make it at 1080p at less seting or 720p maxed out cause videos taken are really big, another thing you could try out it's checking your HDD mine has damaged and sometimes i got choppy FPS, make some HDD test like the Seagate one.
    PD: Try overclocking also, the stock 3.3Ghz could be improved to 4.5Ghz on a decent cooler.
