Hello everyone !
 
So 1 week ago I got myself a new computer with the following specs:
VIDEO CARD: ASUS Gtx 970 strix 4GB
PROCESSOR: Intel core i5 4690k 3.5 Ghz quad core
MOTHERBOARD: Z97 Gaming 5
RAM: 1 stick of 8 GB
HDD: 1 TB
PSU: 650W Gaming inter-tech
 
I downloaded myself some games like dishonored, bioshock infinite, archeage and Max payne. I launched the games and when i started playing my gameplay was really choppy. It was not smooth at all, like it should be. Mouse was moving really slowly but i got 60+ fps in fraps. This is NOT VSync issue. The problem is in aspect ratio and resolution. So i change the aspect ratio in game from 16:9 to 16:10 and i changed resolution from 1920x1080 to 720x480 my screen shrinked and the gameplay was butter smooth and all the problems that i am having went away. I tried setting it to 4:3 and the gameplay as butter smooth there as well. After that i thought it was my monitor so i tried 2 different TV screens and i also tried 2 more monitors but everything was the same there as well. Its a really weird issue and im trying to fix it for the past week. I would really really appreciate all the help from you guys !
 
Thanks !
Hello everyone !

What OS are you using, and i'm guessing that you have already updated your graphics drivers due to having GeForce experience installed. Are you using the "optimized" setting from geforce experience?

 

Never mind from the screen shot it's windows 7, just making sure that you have updated all your drivers and everything still.

Geforce experience has an area in the program that will optimize your games for the best overall experience according to your system specifications in it. I've come to notice with the 900 series cards that when you use their optimized settings it's not always correct. It does do a better job of keeping your drivers up to date than windows does though.
