Recently built computer struggles to run games.

My computer struggles to run games above 30 fps and I feel like it shouldn't be running anywhere near that bad. When I turn settings down it tends to just get worse. Games like Rainbow 6 and Wildlands both have a bar showing how much vram(?) I am using for those games and maxed out setting its usually not even half of my 8088. Games I typically play and struggle to run are fortnite, minecraft, Rainbow 6, Wildlands, and For Honor. Games I run max and have zero problems with are Borderlands 2, Waframe, Subnautica, Apex Legends, etc. Here are my specs:

GeForce GTX 1070 Intel(R) Core(TM)i5-7500 CPU @ 3.40GHz 16 GB RAM

Just making sure, is the monitor cable plugged into the GPU outputs, not the motherboard outputs?

How are the CPU and GPU temperatures under load?

Did this get resolved?

It did not. I've tried everything I can think of but no luck.

Ok, give us your full system specs. Specifically HDD or SSD info as well as what PSU you are running. I'd also like to know your settings and what monitor your hooked into. I'm really curious what is going on here. Ill give you a few theories off the top of my head, some of these are easier to deal with than others.

  1. GPU is junk and needs to be RMA'd back to manufacturer.
  2. PSU is not delivering the power needed and simply needs to be replaced.
  3. Bios or software (this crap gets tricky, might be easier to do a full clean install of windows from scratch)
  4. HDD or SSD is starting to fail causing system wide issues.

Post a full list of your specs. Including the monitor your working with.

Im not sure if any of this is what you needed but its all I could find outside of what I've already posted

A bit of a mess to read through but i get the general gist. I'm honestly not sure though what the real issue is at this point. Its just odd that its some games but not all, and the games dont seem consistent. Its possible the hard drive is failing or corrupted in parts, I might try replacing that first and seeing if it helps. Go with a cheap SSD to install windows and add in a few of those game that are giving u grief. At this point though this is just a guess on my part.

Update your drivers? I know NVIDIA is having problems where the CPU is stuck at max load or something like that

I double checked and from what I can tell everything is updated.

Turn V-Sync off and make sure you dont have a framerate cap. Go into task manager and see what is eating up all the RAM/GPU power/ CPU and whether any background tasks are running. Also go into your monitor settings and turn v-sync off and free-sync off.

Just seeing you haven't replied to the guy who also said this, if you've plugged your monitor cable into the wrong port, you'll be using the integrated GPU in the CPU rather than the GPU itself.

The GPU ports are below the main bulk of ports and are in a different orientation to the other monitor ports.
