Low FPS with Metro 2033 and others

First I'd like to say I've been lurking for awhile and I've gotten quite a bit of help from the members here so thanks!

Now, I just recently build a computer which is not completely finished. I need to add a graphics card, blu-ray drive. and a better cpu cooler but as of now my build is,
Intel i5-4670k(stock clock until I get the cooler)
MSI Z87-G45 gaming motherboard
WD 1TB 7200 blue drive
8gb of G.skill ram (2133MHz)
and a Rosewill Capstone 750W PSU
running Windows 8.

On to the question. I just downloaded the Metro pack from steam (Metro 2033, last light, and DLC). I looked at benchmark videos for my graphics "card" (intel 4600) and saw over 25fps+ from a few sources, however, when I run the game I get maybe 1fps. Every setting was turned all the way down. resolution was put on 800x600. I have a similar issue with League of legends performing no where near the reported benchmarks and rift is also running slow. So, is this normal? Am i doing something wrong or is something not working properly? I can understand not performing the exact same as the benchmarks but I feel like I am wayy off!

I plan on getting a graphics card soon, I'm waiting to see what Nvidia does with their prices and/or blackfriday/cybermonday deals, so until then I'll be using the same setup.

Ensure you have the latest Drivers for your Intel HD 4600 Graphics. Might explain the problem there. Chances are that your HD drivers may be out of date out of the box.

Intel graphics are not going to give you the frame rate and resolution you really want for modern games. I imagine you'll see a huge improvement when you add a separate graphics card.

That was it!! I guess I overlooked those drivers when I was installing the ones for my MB and getting everything set up. Thanks for the help!!!

Yup, no worries. LOL, HD Graphics always get neglected especially for low end games. Typical for Motherboard Chipsets that support On-Board Video.
