Hey Richnic and welcome to TSF! :wave:

What kind of lag are you experiencing? Is it a constant lag or can you play the game fine for a while and then after a while, do you experience lag? When was the last time you have dusted your computer? And have you updated all of your drivers?
Thanx a lot

I did that all recently and still the same... Don't know what it can be, its lagging the hole time when I'm playing, and its hard to aim because the mouse doesn't move quickly enough and I have set the sensitivity to high and still the same... It's a serious pain! Maybe I must re-install the game??

But It can't be the gfx card giving prob. I just playing cod black ops everything on high and no lag...

Can't figure this one out..
VSync can sometimes cause mouse lag or occasional stuttering. If you've got VSync enabled in the game's graphics options, disable it.

If that leads to screen-tearing during fast action scenes, go to the Catalyst Control Center and force VSync from there, still leaving it disabled in the game's options menu. This will override the game's settings.

Does reducing the in-game graphics settings to minimum have any effect on the lag?

What mouse are you using? Is it wired or wireless? Is its driver up to date? If it has a 'polling rate' option in the mouse control panel, set it as high as possible for maximum responsiveness.

If there's a 'mouse acceleration' or 'mouse smoothing' option in Dead Space, disable it.
Thanks koala it worked when I disabled the Vsync but I'm still having the mouse problems,It's a wired mouse and haven't updated it's drivers but will try that.

I also set the mouses responsiveness to high and in the game but still the same.. But haven't checked for smooth or accelarated mouse settings but will give it a try

Thanks a lot guys!
