Default Extreme lag when under "suppression" effect?

So the rest of this game is pretty awesome. It really requires squads, commanders, all that good stuff. Great mod.

Except for the suppression effect. Every time a bullet lands within a 10 foot radius of me the screen goes fuzzy, which is expected and perfectly fine. However, it lags up the game so much that I can't even move to get out of the way! I can't fire back, however randomly, I can't move, I can't duck, I can't do squat.

So what's the deal? Other than that stupid effect, the game runs smoothly and never gives me an issue. Why does it do it then, and how can I fix it?

Yeah, the graphics card is definitely outdated. I just don't want to afford a new one (got a car to build up. But, if that doesn't take all of my years salary at the job I'm getting into *only 17, so it's a low level job at a local restaurant*, I might pick up a new one.).

Any ideas on what settings I could lower in order to get it smooth?

Distance, definetly, I got everything on low, dosent really make a difference, just stops your card overheating, i advise you get Rivertune which sees how hot your card is in game, if it gets really hot, i advise you get a new one.

Well, I decided to experiment so I turned all the settings to either low of off except for view distance, which I left at 100%. Runs smooth now lol. Graphics card issue no doubt.

See, the effect is so cool when it doesn't lag so much lol.
