Default game running very very slow even in menus

The game is running very slow on my pc and it even does this in the menu when you first start. i exceed the min specs by far( 4 gig ram 8800gtx 3+ gig cpu) i have updated the drivers and installed any patches for the game. unfortunatly best buy wont take the game back so i will attempt to get it working. it seems pretty scary though after reading all of these bugs in the forum

any help would be greatly appreciated .

Did you turn on any of the graphics options?

I wouldn't worry too much about the bugs in the forums, mostly of them have long been fixed.

The bugs aren't as bad as they look. all the bugs ever are in here, including ones that got fixed, ones that got fixed and then unfixed and then fixed and then unfixed and then fixed(actually, the only bug that kept cropping up like that was an access violation) ones that were introduced in patches and then later fixed, and a handful still in the game. Also, most bugs recieved more than one thread.

Then it's probably somthing wrong with your graphics card, actually. Most likely, you have one that is horrible with some integral component of DoP graphics.

Just making sure you didn't turn on every option possible.

Hardware wise you really should be fine.

If you open the console (~key) and type in fps 1 and hit enter it should show you your fps in the top left corner. What is this when just at the main menu and when in the world?

You can also turn on the profile and get some better info where the slow down is if also while in the console type in profile 2 and hit enter.

This is happening on my machine as well.
I have a Windows7 system running on a 3GHz AMD64 cpu with 2 gigs ram, k8vse deluxe mobo and a radeon x1950 pro graphics card. Should work like a dream but I'm getting 1fps in the game and 5 fps in the menu.
This looks like it might be a good game but at the moment it's unplayable.

(and yes I've tried turning all the options down to minimal settings and done everything previously advised.)
The console shows that the renderer is causing all the problems.

Windows7?! I think it doesn't support DoP. I think you downloaded the illegal version of windows7 because they haven't released it yet officially thus it has no supports or compatibility patches.
