Hello

I get absolute garbage FPS in GTA V (online) and pretty bad FPS in Rust, the FPS in GTA V(online) makes the game literally unplayable, i feel like whenever it tries to load a new area it just goes to cr*p, the game basically pauses, unpauses and repeats, constantly.

This is my system:

What should i upgrade to remedy the issue/improve it?


Any help will be greatly appreciated!

Thanks.

What settings are you trying to run games at?

6th gen i5 & a 960 shouldn't have an issue running GTAV at medium.

Do you have a lot of programs running in the background? What are the temps like when you're gaming?

Temps of my CPU go highest, to around 60-70celsius.

I have little to no programs running in the background, and whenever i alt+tab out of a game my computer goes incredibly slow, like...INCREDIBLY slow, sometimes just freezing chrome and other programs, this also occurs when ive just closed one of the lagging games, and goes slow for maybe 10 minutes afterwards, then things shift back to normal.

Really don't see why you're having an issue running the game then. Try a PC cleanup? Chkdsk, Malwarebytes and what not.

I wouldn't say its a hardware issue. If you're 100% sure your temps are fine as they are on all components then its probably a software issue. That or either a component is faulty.

Honestly the worst component in your build I'd say would be the RAM but that shouldn't be an issue unless it was like DDR2 xD

What are temps of CPU and GPU under load? Is the CPU hitting 100% load? i5-6400 has poss poor clock speed and GTA V is pretty CPU heavy(both cores and speed), not sure if Rust is the same, but I imagine clock speed is holding you back.

Just ran GTA V, not sure what the temps peak would be but its usually just 65 celsius for the CPU whilst running GTA V, and the CPU was at 95%-100% usage, jumping to and fro. memory was more or less just sitting at 95%.

Guess i need a better CPU?
