The Sims 3 is wayyyyy tooooo slow

Specs: Windows Vista

I have a brand new Alienware Gaming computer, Model # M15x, with windows vista, which it has nothing on it, except for the the Sims 3. The download of the game was extremely fast, but when i play, its way too slow. I cant figure out why, because my computer is made for gaming. Ive read other peoples blogs on how their sims 3 game is slow too, and that they might do a recall on the game. Also, when i try to use quick time on the game, the fastest setting is actually probably what the slow setting should be. ANy one have a clue what i should do?

Try updating your graphics card drivers, I'm assuming you have an Nvidia model.

Are you running in power-save mode? If so, then that's your problem, it downclocks your CPU and GPU to conserve energy.

Otherwise, try propping your laptop up for better airflow, it may simply be getting too hot.

No system specs, no solutions.

Need to know:
CPU
RAM
Video Card

at the very least.

PowerMac 9600(1 ghz G4)
512mb RAM
50gb SCSI
ATi 9200 PCI

They're not going to recall that game as the speed which is the problem is the speeding up of time and not the speed at which your processor is running the game. You need to give Outlander your specs and find out if it's a system issue. Because I have this game and Vista. The way you're presenting this, it seems like a computer issue, not a game issue.
