Okay,i don't know by what miracle but it's the third time i tried and now it works flawlesly.This time i didn't install the dx and MS packages because i already had them installed the second time i tried lost alpha.I didn't change the sliders from the advanced tab in the graphics menu except for msaa,grass shadows,shadow map size(i reduced it from high to default) and i disabled ssao and its quality,oh and sun shafts too from medium to low.And that was it,it works now just as it should.So thank you all who helped me and posted solutions here.One last question,if anyone knows:What is the difference between SSAO off and on?And what is the specific SSAO option for nvidia cards?HDAO of HBAO?Thanks.

HBAO is for Nvidia while HDAO is for AMD/Ati. SSAO gives the least performance hit of the three but is also the least precise. All make things look better as they are used to calculate in real time how much surfaces are exposed to ambient lighting.

My suggestion is you should try SSAO and see how that works. If you don't get slow-downs stay with it, else set it to Off. I have a 980 Ti (comparable to a 1070 - giver or take) and currently have HBAO enabled but expect having to change to SSAO as I'm playing at 2560*1440.

Remember that closing in on places with more than a few NPCs (like the village in Cordon) will make the game freeze for a moment, regardless. Also try keep down the amount of loot you save in your stashes. Too much loot in the stashes will bring the game to its knees, in worst case force you to load an earlier save. It's caused by the way the game engine counts and handles the contents in stashes.

You will be pleased to hear that there's a line in the release changelog alleging that the slow down bug has been eliminated.

OTOH, you won't want to be collecting much in the way of weaponry anyway (another clog reference)

For the moment i will just leave them as the game put them by default:HBAO,and SSAO quality to medium.I will see how that fares and if there are slowdowns i will shut them off.Thanks for the replies everyone,happy hunting!
