Full specs please? I can see you have 12Gb of RAM in the specsheet, but I don't know what type of CPU or GPU you have.

EDIT: I see you have a GTX 470. That's a very low-end GPU for playing any kind of games. THere's your fault, assuming this is a custom-built system or whatnot. Try turning all your graphics settings in the game down to 'Low' and see if that helps.

"Have a fast PC with plenty of memory..."

Please list your complete system specs. We have no idea which CPU you have, which RAM, or if you have a gaming video card installed. The SSD has little to do with good gaming performance, it just mean quicker load times.

EDIT: "I see you have a GTX 470. That's a very low-end GPU for playing any kind of games"

The GTX 470 is NOT a low end card. It's on the upper end of the charts. Prototype is an old game though so it could be a Win8 issue.

✔ Best Answer
Found the answer - disabled most of the devices in HID and then went into sound options and changed the quality of my sound card from whatever it is to 44.1khz. Game works realyy well and the graphics are fantastic!

Well glad you fixed it. Thanks for letting us know.

@riider Guess I should look before I type... Just assumed the low number meant it was a poor card :-I

Oldisgood: on NVidia GTX cards the '4' indicates that it is an older series but the '70' indicates that it was a higher up card. The charts shows it just about where the GTX750 Ti and the GTX650 Ti Boost falls.

OP: Glad also to hear you solved it.

Go to 'My Home' and let the site do a scan to update your specs.

If there is any answers that you can choose as best, it will then mark the post Solved.
