Hello, I'm new to this system so sorry if I do something wrong. Basicly, I'm a competitive Fortnite player, but recently the game is absolutely unplayable with my FPS constantly drop to 15. My screen freezes for a split second every 3 seconds. I optimized my PC for gaming and gaming only. I have nothing running in the background. Game is ran at HIGH priority. I cleaned both software and hardware. Nothing helped. I am looking to upgrade a component or more but I dont know which one since I got so many different answers. My specs: GTX 1060 6gb, Intel I5-8th gen, 8GB DDR4 RAM, only 2 hard drives, no SSD. Please help!!

update your drivers, i know Nvidia has a problem with their current ones

(or role them back)

I agree this is most likely.

  1. Check drivers for everything first.
  2. Make sure windows has all of its updates.
  3. Check temps on CPU and GPU.

If those three are all good it gets tricky from there.

  1. Check integrity of hard drives, you might try to install the game on the other hard drive and see if that helps.
  2. Ensure all cables are good, and all dust is cleared in the PC.
  3. CHECK YOUR POWERSUPPLY if its hardware this is it 90% of the time.

If those last 3 dont help, message back, it could be almost anything at that point.

I always reccomend reinstalling the game first if that doesn't work roll back drivers to older versions our update them to the newest. as your first 2 steps you take.
