Question Is Guitar Hero 3 for PC really that laggy?

I can't afford a 360 right now, but I love Guitar Hero. I went on www.bestbuy.com and found out they have it for PC and Mac, but at least every other review says it has a lot of lag. I have an eMachines T5212 computer with Windows XP MCE, upgraded nVidia GeForce 7600 GS graphics card, 1 gig of ram, dual core processor, etc. I was J/W if you think that that will run the game fine? Yes, I've played Frets on Fire, Flash Hero, and Freetar Hero too. I hate using the keyboard. So don't bring those up please, lol. Thanks!

hmm. I cant see why it lags. Your processor is iffy because its stock emachines. Plus its most likely a software error for pc.

GH3 for PC blows. even on my machine* it will suffer small hiccups on occasion, it's poorly ported.

Core 2 Duo 2.66ghz, 2gb RAM, x1950Pro

it runs on my E6420, 2GB of RAM, and an 8800GTS. but a friend of mine with a 7600GS, 1GB of RAM and a 2.4GHz P4 can't play the boss battles and has to have most settings on low for it to even run.

I read that you have to have vsync on, but I don't know. Borrow a friends USB guitar and "buy it"

I have all the same except i have a 2.66GHz dual core. So it's laggy for him?

I know the guitars works on PC's and 360's as you stated, but when I get a 360 and a new guitar hero comes out, all I'll need to do is buy the game which will save me mooonayyy.

Yeah, just say you got it for your little brother but he has Linux and couldn't run it or something like that.

C2D @ 3.4Ghz, 2GB DDR2 with a X1950XTX and it runs fine for me. Every once in a while I'll get a very minor hiccup. It hasn't caused me to loose track of the notes though.
