I received a Dell Alienware 17 Note for my birthday. I really wanted a better computer for running Sims 3 because it is really slow and most expansions make the game lag and kick me off and I loose all progress. Now I installed Sims 3 with Windows 8 Pro and it ran beautifully for three tries then it pulled my screen apart kind of like blurred or drunken vision. So I changed the settings a few times and restarted a few times and it is still present. I installed AOE 3 and the same problem occurred. Is that because of my PC or because of Windows 8?
