Hello everyone i dont know if this is the right topic to choose to post this thread so if any of mods could move my post to appropriate topic i would really appreciate it ! Recently i bought myself a new computer. The specs are following:
Asus gtx 970 strix 4gb
intel core i5 4690k 3.5ghz quad core processor
z97 gaming 5 motherboard
8 GB RAM
So i was really exited because i got it and i installed bunch of games on it like Archeage, league of legends, dishonored, bioshock infinite. So i installed fraps to check fps while i was gaming and the fps was always at 60 FPS. But while i was gaming i noticed that the gameplay was not smooth it felt really laggy. I would move my mouse around and all from the sudden i would notice a little lag spike. It was like a little screen tear. It really annoyed me because i couldn't play the game normally basically i couldn't enjoy the game. In archeage when i first launched it characters in cites took ages to load. When i came to the city after the intro all the characters were black like they were glitched out but then they came back after 10 sec. In archeage when i moved my camera my screen froze for a sec and then everything was fine. But i also got those weird lag spikes in that game too. When i installed windows it was also acting pretty weird when i would open a program i expected to be opened in instant because people were saying that my computer should run at speed of light with specs like that. When i opened a program it took like 5 second to open up and sometimes even control panel would take that long to open. I updated all my drivers with gefroce experiance and i updated my bios and network drivers using motherboard utility MSI Live update 6. I also used driver booster 2 to update my drivers i also paid for that software. I tried turning off v-sync and turn it on again and it didnt fix it. I also uninstalled nvidia phishyx and turned on triple buffering but nothing. I tried moving my computer to other monitors (monitors are around 7-8 years old) and i even tried TV but the problem is still there... My CPU temperature is 46 last time i checked in bios and my GPU temperature is around 70 when playing games like archeage. I have the same GPU, PSU like my friend and similar processor just a little bit weaker and when he is playing games i just mentioned nothing happens everything is working smooth for him. I worked really hard for this computer for years but now i got this lag spikes. The funny thing is a program FRAPS and ACTION which are programs to record videos with showed that i played all of the mentioned games at 60 FPS sometimes i noticed it jumped down to 59 FPS but usually it was always 60 i never saw FPS droped more then 59 FPS. Any ideas how to fix this. I would really appreciate !
Let me know if you guys need any more info about anything !
