Hi, I got a prebuilt gaming pc made by iBuyPower.

It has:

16GB of RAM

GTX 1060

i7-7700 @ 3.60 GHz




I cant open the Nvidia control panel because it says that i am not using a display attached to the graphics card so that's 1 issue.

Another issue is framerate.

I ran PUBG on High Settings and get around 45-50 fps

I have had a few games where it ran the same on Ultra settings than it did on Low Settings so that's confusing.

On Minecraft I get around 200fps with Fancy settings

I havent done all that crazy stuff with overclocking and that but I want to know if my graphics card is even running because I feel that it can do better.

The PC in general cost around $1000 prebuilt and i dont see any problem with it other than playing on high settings.

I tried buying Rust and its basically Unplayable with the frames I get.


If anyone has any ideas or fixes to this PLEASE let me know.

and if anyone knows how to fix why i cant access the Nvidia control panel, please tell me, thanks.

Are you plugged into the VGA/DVI port on the motherboard? Plug it into the back of the card homie. Make sure rust uses your grapics card and not your integrated graphic unit. Unity has a bug where it will attempt to run its games by default using your integrated gpu.

I also don't have any wires that go from the GPU to the motherboard so if I need to go buy one separately where should I go and get them

The only wires inside the machine that should be connected to the GPU is the one from the power supply. Im pretty sure the GTX 1060 has an HDMI output. Take the HDMI cord that plugged into the motherboard and plugs it into the back of the card.
Example: The second slot from the left.

My CPU only shows up with the DVI port so my best bet is getting a hdmi to dvi adapter, any other tips would help alot
