If its not psu then i will try your technique but there is no virus, no where near 50% cpu load, tried all graphics settings still laggy, so that takes that out of the equation.

Also temp is never above 50 and that would leave pcie slot problems but surely the card wouldnt work at all then but it does.

U sure u plugged the vga to ur graphics card and not the mobo vga slot? Cause if it's plug on ur stock/mobo gpu, that will really cause some laggy issues. That's the only thing i can think of since u already did a clean install with no virus and cpu usage is 30-40%. :)

Quick check: I haven't dealt with a board with on board video in a while, but you used to have to disable the on board video in the hardware manager. Not sure if windows or the motherboard does this for you now, as the hp site mentions the on board will disable if another video card is present, but its worth a check.

Also, confirm the driver you are using in dxdiag's display1 page.. make sure the main driver is an amd one not an intel one.

I had the exact same problem when i first got my 6670.

It's usually caused by the Catalyst AI which is part of the ATI software that comes bundled with the driver.
The Application settings conflict with the driver settings, sometimes even when you set the driver to "use application settings".

Two things I've found that worked to fix this were:
1. Uninstall Catalyst Control Centre and the driver.
Reinstall just the diriver.
Install RadeonPro. This allows you to set configure graphics settings and turn off the Catalyst AI on a game by game basis.

2. (method I'm currently using)
In Catalyst Control Centre under tab for Gaming, set to the following:
Anti-Aliasing mode : Use application settings
Anti-Aliasing Samples : Use application settings
Filter : Standard
Anti-Aliasing Method : Multisampling
Anisotropic filtering mode : Use application settings
Anisotropic Filtering level : Use application settings
Texture filtering quality : High quality
Surface format optimization : On
Wait for vertical refresh : Off, unless application specifies (This is the one which causes most problems for screen tearing as it conflicts with in game settings when set to on)
OpenGL triple buffering : Off (this causes most of the lag when set to on)
Tesselation mode : Use application settings
Maximum tesselation level : Use application settings

Then it's just a case of tweaking in-game settings until you get it looking the way you like it.

Using these settings I've been able to run Crysis 2 on maximum graphics at 1920x1080 even with the Directx 11 patch. I can run it on high with the Hi-res texture pack as well.
