Hey Guys

I wonder if anyone can shed any light on this one, i have got a copy of Splinter Cell Conviction , and i ran the system requirements lab before i purchased and my computer specs pass with plying colours, however, after installing the game it default set everything to the lowest settings and the game still as i would say chugs, runs very slow, not video sequences may i add they run perfect, but actual gameplay,

Here are my stats and the recommended manufacturer's ones, has anyone got any idea on what i could do please?

Thanks Matt

This is what I said in another post.

The reason why the system requirement lab says you exceed, well, me too, is that it sees that this card is higher than the other cards, so obviously, it says the computer exceeds. You can set everything on high, with no AA and keep your resolution low, and the game should work. 1024x768 the max that you can go in SP anyway. You can set it higher in D-ops, since the fps is smoother. Your post title is a little misleading.
