Horrible Lag
So I decided to give ME1 another run-through, but suddenly it is lagging horribly. I have spent several hours researching a fix, but nothing seems to work. It appears to be a rather common problem, too. Here are my specs:

Windows 7 Home
Intel Pentium 3GHz 32-bit
3GHz RAM
Radeon R7 240

Let me know if I left anything out.

So far I've tried updating drivers, made sure I have the latest patch, disable v-sync, disable film grain, disable Steam Overlay, compatibility mode, run as admin, .ini file tweak to disable smooth framerate, and defrag. Nothing has worked one bit. The framerate stays about 10-15. I tried running ME2 and it runs smooth as silk. I'm at a loss, can anyone help?

ME1 just had a terrible PC port job. There isn't too much you can do to get around that without using different hardware to see what works.

That's what I was afraid of. It used to run great on my previous video card. Well, if anyone knows any other tricks I can try it would be greatly appreciated!
