How can I stop the Lag
My system requirements DOUBLE what it says the game requires and yet the gameplay is heaps laggy and jumpy. Menu areas outside of the gameplay is fine. anyone know how I can make it run smoother?

you might have low ammount of memory left on one of your drive i had the same problem and i had to delete some things so i had 20gb left free. now every game runs fine

I have over 500 gb left on my Harddrive, 8GB Ram, 1Gb graphics and a i5 quad core 2.8Ghz processor. the game says it only needs 512 graphics, 2gb ram and a 2ghz dual core processor...? so any other reasons for lag? please

What is your graphics card? it may be very low end

I have an ATI Radeon 5450 series 1GB with Direct X 9.0

ok my specs 2.31 quad core 3 gb of ram hd radeon 6670 1 gb of ddr3 vram directx11

Here is another vald point the specs you see are the lowest specs a pc can have to run the game decently. The higher specs are not available because crysis has stunning beautiful graphics that are unmatched by almost any game on this planet on max graph. I can run skyrim on ultra, that doesn't mean I can run crysis 2 on max or even high.

Q. "How can I stop the Lag"
A. Take that ♥♥♥♥♥♥ 5450 out of you computer and buy a descent GPU. Seriously. Same answer goes for the 6670 owner.

I was asking for help, not a bragging baby...

Yeah dont pay any attention to that dude op. Anyways, you will only be able to run the game at its lowest settings with the type of card you have. What resolution are you gaming at?

My suggestion would be to set the resolution close to minimum and all of the graphics to a minimum. It will help to close any other open programs on your computer. That graphics card is ideal for browsing the internet and watching movies, not playing games so you're going to have to sacrifice anywhere you can. You may be able to find a program to overclock your gpu but the ods are you might get 1/10 of a frame per second increase with a max overclock on the lower end card. If you want you could always spring for a Nvidia GTX 560 Ti or a Radeon HD 7850 that will run you a little over $200. I would also look into overclocking your core i5 as well. To give you a better idea where your graphics card sits, If you were to go purchase a new Radeon HD 5450 it would only set you back $30. If this is in a laptop unfortunately it would be pricey and unwise to upgrade any graphics that are in your system. 90% of consumer laptops are not built for running games unless of course you are playing angry birds. You would either need a custom build or a good Asus gamer or highly overpiced Alienware.

Or you could pay about 500 dollars just to upgrade your PC so it can run on Ultra like mine does. My specs are "GPU: Nvidia GTX 580. CPU: Intel i5 2.80 GHz. Ram: 16 GB". Do this and you'll have a lovely PC for a quite awhile.

Also, no point in paying 2000 dollars just to get a beast PC. In a couple of years it's all going to a pretty low price. And your PC will still work quite well when you upgrade it once again.
