so I started playing fable 3 and the game runs extremely slow. I used fraps to indicate that will usually run at 15-20 frames per second, no matter how low I set the graphic details/settings, or the resolution. My PC more than meets the minimum requirements yet whenever I'm in town

I've turned Vsync on, and Vsync off but no matter what in towns or dungeons it runs incredibly slow. I've tried adjusting settings from my video card and in game settings but nothing changes it. :(

any help would be nice

I actually attempted one fix I Found on another forum which was rolling back a driver for my video card. Which of course had no different result :/

it maybe your system isnt powerful enough to run any faster-just because you meet the minimum requirements, doesnt mean you meet the recomended requirements. as you can see http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic474964.html your system does not meet the recomended requirements, especially in the video card department, the geforce 430 is a very low end card, and not designed for gaming. My guess is you will have to update that before you will be able to play at any higher framerate.

So you think its the graphics card?

Here's why I don't think it is... This PC can play higher framerate games than fable 3, such as call of duty, batman arkham city, Elder scrolls skyrim and the battlefield games. No problem. Fable? it acts up.

I have a friend who's laptop is inferior to my specs but it plays fable 3 smoothly. The other games that I listed? Well they move the way fable 3 moves on my PC

Now, let me further add, if I turn the Vsync on, it does in in fact raise the Frame rate, however it jitters. The framerate shoots up to almost 120-160, but is constantly jittering and still moving slow. Basically it fraps is flicking between 160 and 140, still resulting in a slow game.

If the Vsync is turned off it runs 30fps and jitters between that and 15 or 20

If your still seeing slow movement with the vsync on, and fraps is showing 140-160, then your fraps must be giving false readings, the human eye cannot see past about 85 fps, and you will not see a difference between 90 and 160, it just isnt possible. I have seen instances where the same card will play some games better then other games, but Ive also seen cases where certain games have bugs or are have a software clash with somethig in the system. From a google search, it seems this game was not designed for PC but console and was ported across-which often creates problems, some suggestions Ive found is turning off vsync in game (not in the video card controls) as well as turning off shadows and lowering water quality. And keep checking fables home site for patches, apparently this is a pretty common issue so hopefully they will create a patch to fix it.

Thanks for your help again and yeah I'm aware of how it was made for an xbox and not a pc. But some people who play it on PC manage to get it to run fine with super powered gaming computers.

All the settings are low (Water, shadow, grass/tree detail), v sync was turned on/off in game and still the same result. Real bummer. :[

like I said it may just need a patch-that happened with crysis when it first came out, it just wouldnt play very well on some computers-even some high end ones-until they released the patch for it.
