New Rig, Old Game

Hi folks,


I am having troubles installing SC4 on my machine. The machine is the latest and greatest of the iMac, so the card is 680MX (with latest driver). 32GB RAM, basically the maxed out machine minus SSD.


My problem is SC4 feels like I am stuck in glue. My old rig, a 2007 iMac, felt sluggish but not as bad as the current. Also when scrolling I get horrific tearing? Or whatever it is you call it, sort of like dragging a window box and it leaving a trail of boxes in its wake. The game does that.


The trail will disappear if I zoom out or in. Or sometimes it will disappear on its own after 5-10 seconds.


Not great.


I understand that the game is old and newer drivers may not run it, so I am just curious if I have extended all possible realm of running this goold olde game now.


I took a screenie of what my dragging woes are, but apparently the size is too big... I will see about putting it on an external photo placement site if suggestions warrant it.
