For context I'm a massive noob to both Linux and PC gaming. I'm wanting to play Path of Exile, but its super laggy when I play it. I've adjusted the settings in game to basically the lowest they can be: all the lighting settings are set to low, and the FPS are at 30. I'm wondering if there is anything else I can do to run the game better? Are there computer settings I can change outside of the game?
