Hi.

I get very low fps in Metro: Last Light! With everything but SSAA(turned off completely) maxed out i get around 15 FPS in normal gameplay. When i run the benchmark i get an average of 60 fps!

This is my settings both in benchmark and in game:
DirectX: DirectX 11
Res: 1920 x 1200
Quality: Very High
Texture Filtering: AF 16X
Motion blur: Normal
SSAA: off
Tesselation: Very High
Advanced PhysX: On

The first scene seems fine, but when i wake up back in "the camp" i get around 15 fps.
GPU utilization OSD(MSI Afterburner software) is down to 40% for some reason :/ 
What could be the problem here?

UPDATE:
System specs:
CPU: Intel Core i5-4670K
MB: Gigabyte G1.Sniper Z87, Socket-1150
MEM: Corsair Vengeance DDR3 1600MHz 8GB CL9
GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 780 Gaming 3GB PhysX

What are your computer specs? You need one beast of a machine to max out LL

Do some basics first then tell us the results:

Download and run SPECCY, copy and paste the first tab to show your idle temps
Download and run MSI Afterburner, run some of the games that crash, what temps are you getting when underload?
Open Computer, Can Air dust out the bunnies and use paint brush on the vents, coolers, fans, etc.

Did you install all Windows Updates? Including options except BING? Check them and repeat till ALL are installed.
Download and run Slim Drivers, install all the latest updates but you don't need to reboot until you do the last update
Remove whatever AV your using and go to www.filehippo.com and download AVAST! or AVG and do a full system scan - this repeatedly has resolved alot of people issue relying on MS Essentials.
Download Malwarebytes do a full system scan (AV doesn't pick up alot of malware) - this resolved almost ALL other similiar posts to date as most had Malware the AV didn't pick up.
Repeat the AV/Malware scans till the system comes up clean.

My system is 2 weeks old so no dust inside ;) 
I've run malwarebytes and i use bitdefender anti virus.
Here is my Speccy summary

Turning of PhysX fixed the problem. So do i need a friggin dedicated physx gpu to run this game or what? :p

Or just don't use physx, it doesn't do much anyway. But maybe if you lower some other specs you could run with physx

Metro is a ridiculously demanding game even without the PhysX, so taking away GPU power to run PhysX really won't help your performance. As said above either turn some other settings down and try to run PhysX, or get a dedicated GPU to run PhysX.
