    If you want to make a new game in an established franchise that has fallen into obscurity somehwat outside a dedicated fanbase, I think you should better try to keep faithful to the originals.

    It's a "discount" that applies to everyone, though, whether he owns the original or not.
    I'm just saying that someone who already spend his money on the original+DLC might as well get some reward...

    IMHO, a decent publisher would make it available for free, or at least with a good discount, for those customers that already own the original+DLC(s).
    Whether SE is one of the decent publishers, I...

    Judging from the different scraps of info it seems that they want to do the worst possible thing:
    Reboot the franchise by completely disregarding the story of T1-3 and coming up with their own,...

    Then why call it Thief and make clear references to the old games if not to appeal to "a few hundred thousand, aging PC gamers of yesteryear"?

    Would make more sense in that case to come up with...

    Are you serious? You think that through their next-gen-console magic we will enter a blissful state of gaminggasm and forget all about the stuff which contributed to making the original games so...

    Have to say, I'm a bit concerned from what I've read in the internets.

    I'm not opposed to change, esp. when such a long time has passed since the original games got released, but the new...

    Hm, strange problem.
    Maybe try testing the ram, too, while you are at it.
    I usually use memtest for that, comes with most Linux distros/live cds, but there's a tool available in Windows 7 as well,...

    Phenom 2's are limited to 1333 MHz ram at stock settings. You can plug in faster ram, but it will still only run at 1333, unless you overclock the memory controller. If you have done that (but you...

    Is DX:HR the only game with this problem?
    Do you have the latest drivers?

    By the way, Phenom IIs only support 1333MHz ram, although I doubt that this is the cause of your issue.

    I might suffer from the same problem (see my post a little bit up).
    Not sure what's causing it, I suspected the NVidia driver at first (I even have the same GPU as you).
    Try installing a different...

    It's a bit weird, I still get strange slowdowns at random.
    What happens is that at times, the framerate goes down to something like 1fps, making the game totaly unplayable.
    It doesn't crash,...

    I think we had this before, most probably an issue with NVidia's Optimus.
    Try setting the game to DX9 or your laptop to use the NVidia GPU exclusively when playing.

    As far as I know Microsoft has long since released DX11 for Windows Vista.
    It is not included in a fresh installation, but can be downloaded from Microsoft.

    Which driver are you using?

    Interestingly, I yesterday had some similar issues with DXHR that I think may be linked to the new NVidia driver.
    I had installed the newest WHQL release (306.23), but...

    A hard crash is often a sign of underlying hardware or serious driver issues.

    Former may be e.g. overheating of GPU or CPU or faulty ram. You can run a memory check through Memtest (comes with...

    Man, you could really use some punctuation in your writing there.

    Try starting the game in DX9 mode, DX11 is bugged with Optimus, I think.

    Well, it should be over in a matter of a few seconds after loading the area, so all you have to do is wait it out before staring to shoot stuff. I never encountered a situation in the game where this...

    So it's just the few seconds of stuttering when entering a new area that are bothering you?
    In that case I had missunderstood you, I thought it's stuttering the entire time.

    Set SSAO to normal instead of high, looks not much worse, but might help.
    For me at least SSAO on high produces some stutter when moving around in some scenes, while SSAO on normal is smooth.

    As I said I've no experience with Lucid Virtu, but maybe it's possible to turn it off in the BIOS and switch your pc to the GTX550.

    You aren't on a system with Lucid Virtu or NVidia Optimus technology, are you?
    If so, it might be that the game (or maybe Steam) has trouble activating the discreet GPU and tries to access the...

    How about verifying the game files in Steam?
