Default Game runs as if in slow-mo

I bought fear 3 on steam because i remember looking at a trailer ages ago and it looked wicked....since buying it i've had a look at some gameplay and it looks pretty wank but i've paid for it now.

Some people are complaining about some lag when they strafe. My problem is much worse making it unplayable.

It plays on my machine as if i have a ten year old card in it. There is a heart beat sound effect on it and between the beats its about ten seconds.

Specs:

8gb memory

AMD phenom II x6 3.30ghz

GTX 560 Ti

What am i missing? I have made sure my windows\graphics drivers are up to date. I have deleted the content and reinstalled. I have tried compatibility mode to xp (i have 7)

There may be further things to tell but maybe i've missed an obvious fix and it may be irrelevent so if i get no answers i'll expand

It should play fine, just turn the resolution down some until it runs good then adjust between that and the lighting and shadow some.
Nothing to do really until a patch comes out or a driver update for the 560.

Sounds like it might be in need of a patch, could be piss poor support for some of the specific hardware. Or it's just a real bad graph engine that causes it, it's not unusual. Might be worth checking the virus program as well, i recall having issues with that a few times in the past. Especially when real-time modes have been on.

Glad something i'm typing are of some use for a change around here lol

The worst thing about viruses as it often turns out is actually the worthless inconsistent anti-virus programs. You might catch the former but you are pretty much bound to be stuck with the latter of ever lagging and upfuckery of the system. Enjoy the toe tagging of baddies and stuff

The secret to seeing how fast your PC can actually run a game:
  1. Turn all unnecessary services and processes off(especially indexing, backup and R/T AV..not mouse, keyboard, joystick management ones though)
  2. Update drivers
  3. Be rational with what resolution you play at and how you configure in-game detail settings
  4. Set 3d settings to application controlled(especially FSAA), max out buffer-count, turn off Physics accel. on all GPU cores(video IGP and card CP)

Why:
  1. Frees CPU threads
  2. Frees RAM(page files on HDD are slower)
  3. Frees GPU SPs(like cpu threads basically)

Most people on the net make it more complex than it actually is, especially with games like GTA IV/EFLC.

Most virus programs are worthless anyways. Best way to secure yourself in my opinion is practice good habits while connected to the internet. That and running linux for surfing the web can help reduce the chances of being infected by something.
