Disclaimer: not sure where to post this since i dont know the cause of the issue; software or hardware?
About one and a bit years ago i built my first PC ever. Though cable management was horrible and we bent a couple pins, the build was functional after ordering another Motherboard.
GTX 1060 - 6GB VRAM
MSI 7270-A Pro
some Rhombutech 500W Power Supply
and 4 fans in a "2 in" "2 out" formation
2 x 8gb 2400 Ballistix ram
2TB HDD (idk the speed)
250GB SSD (same thing)
I've had an issue with a stick of corrupted RAM, got that figured out but now I'm simply dumbfounded on what to do...
I tend to use my PC for mainly gaming (primarily overwatch but some other titles now and then aswell) or game design (unity3d).
I open overwatch and my FPS (usually at a constant 100, because of my fps cap) is now at 20).
I hope the lag is just caused by opening the game and join a match. My fps sit around 1(yes ONE) - 20 and the game is just unplayable.
I try to find a fix on blizzards forums, but notice that the drops have taken a similar toll on the rest of my PC. Not in the way that my mouse is like a slide show, but that everything takes extremely long to load and is slow to react. I find a post about the latest nvidia drivers being absolute bleep, and to download version 388.71. I have to restart my PC to apply the changes, but cant login (stuck in welcome screen) 2 times and on the 3rd restart i can login. The drivers havent helped whatsoever and I'm not sure what to do.
Can any of you help me find a cheap, preferably simple fix?
Thanks a lot in advance,
