Hello, I've recently done a few upgrades to my computer, I got a new graphics card and motherboard. I play games and when I play games I hate lag.. like most gamers out there...
But what I've noticed is when I play a game like Battlefield 4 for a time and then close it, I'm still stuck with more RAM than usual. I know that the computer keep files open in order to be able to open them faster in future use, but the RAM goes from around 2.4GB after fresh restart to 4.5GB after running a few games and then closing them.I then open a game like Battlefield 4 and the RAM skyrockets to 7GB usage.
This is causing lag, I resort to restarting my computer and opening the game after a fresh restart in order to play it smoothly.
I've been told this is normal but I don't see a reason as to why the computer is performing worse than it was with my old GTX 550Ti, now that I have a new R9 285.
8GB DDR3 1333Mhz RAM
XFX R9 285
i5-2320 @ 3.00Ghz
Windows 7 Home Premium SP1
