Is anyone here?! Btw, The Secret World: Massive Edition runs very well on LOW settings but is laggy when it comes to multiple mobs trying to kill you all at once or boss fights. Still an excellent experience.

Does DAYZ alpha from Steam run well on the SP2?? Any lag or problems? I pray someone answers me this time lol

Just took the gamble and bought DayZ before this past weekend. After loading the latest Intel drivers and optimizing the settings in game, I've now logged about 15 hours of pretty good play. Not sure how well I'd do in a gunfight but I'm able to play without any real issues (considering that the game is still in alpha). I only took a few screenshots but Ill share em and post my video settings in game later. Gotta say, its no gaming rig but I'm really happy with this thing for games so far.

I have the SP2 256

What are your specs? I'm trying to optimize the settings to make gameplay more smooth. I'm on SP2 256

Well, for anyone curious, tried the new Castlevania:Lords of Shadow 2 demo on Steam, played great at 720p, check it out. Enjoyed it so much I went ahead and pre-ordered the full version (Greenmangaming has some stackable coupons that got the price down enough to bite ha). First one played great on the SP2, happy to report the new one plays great as well based on the demo. This is one of the few games I do play with a 360 controller attached instead of KB/M.

I tired titanfall beta, and no go :(

Game runs, but the 3d models are all srewed up.
Yep, it's a bug with Intel and some ATI GPU's... long thread about it over on the game forum. Hopefully it will be fixed, would be curious to try it out, but I too have the same weird graphics glitch when trying on the SP2.
