Games going in slow motion

for some time now on assasins creed 2 the game speed is slower then on my friends xbox as if in slow motion
this also messes up cut scenes as the audio is faster then the animation (i dont think the cut scenes are pre rendered vidoes)

this also happens in brother hood with the same problems: slow motion not jerky as if i have low fps just realy slow and cut scenes being hard to follow

my system specs are as follows

Operating System
MS Windows 7 Ultimate 32-bit
Intel Pentium E6700 @ 3.20GHz 33 °C
Wolfdale 45nm Technology
2.0GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 533MHz (7-7-7-20)
ASUSTeK Computer INC. P5G41T-M LX (LGA775) 33 °C
Generic PnP Monitor (1440x900@75Hz)
512MB GeForce 8400 GS (CardExpert Technology) 43 °C

195GB Western Digital WDC WD2000JS-60NCB1 ATA Device (SATA) 26 °C

More about games slow motion
  1. no it has never played at the same speed as an xbox (i brought my computer round to his house and had them both sat next to each other my pc was going slower then the xbox but no evidence of low fps just slow floatyness)

    btw nothing has been overclocked
  2. You are using the GeForce 8400 GS card that is very poor for gaming so this slow motion in games is expected. Get a new card and your problem will be solved.
  3. ^ ray...
    i kinda dont have any money because i had to buy a new mobo/cpu after they both died £160 it cost me -_-

    ah well time to stop buying tm revolution albums and save up for a new graphics
  4. try running the game at lower resolution? what are you trying to run at right now? what video settings you have set in game? what is the setting of your graphics card for nvidia scaling?
  5. i have all graphics options on low and i didnt think about changeing resolution thanks i will try that
    ok tried that no change seems a new graphics card is all i can do :/

    and that processor is now overclocked by 15% to 3673.5 MHz
    strange just looked at the motherboard information it says this

    Socket Designation LGA775
    Manufacturer Intel
    Version Pentium(R) Dual-Core CPU E6700 @ 3.20GHz
    Supported Voltage 1.3 v
    External Clock 266 MHz
    Max Speed 3800 MHz
    Current Speed 4000 MHz

    ah well prime95 said it had no problems after i tortured it for an hour or so
  6. Everything is fine for you except the graphics so save money and buy a good graphic card. No other solution!!!
  7. as above asys the only problem is your gfx. it is underspec for the game. your cpu will get the best from a 9800gt, gtx, gtx+, gts250, gts450 or 4850, 5750 ot 5770 as they will balance your cpu also you want to upgrade your ram. its ddr2 533 not ddr3. you want ddr2 800 minimum and 1066 if your motherboard can handle it.

    personally i wouldnt waste my money on a gts430 or 440 they wouldnt do your cpu justice and you will always be struggling to get decent fps in most games as they are barley above minimum spec and under minimum spec for todays games.
