Help, FPS DROPS ON ALL GAMES

Ever since I purchased my custom build PC I have experienced fps drops on most of the games I play. Even when I turn down the settings to improve my performance this does not seem to have an effect. Here are my specs.


Case STYLISH PIANO BLACK ENIGMA CASE + 2 FRONT USB
Change to: COOLERMASTER ELITE 311 BLUE CASE
Processor (CPU) AMD A10-5800K Quad Core APU (3.8GHz) & Radeon™ HD 7660D Graphics
Motherboard ASUS® F2A55-M LE: (M-ATX, DDR3, USB2.0, SATA 3Gb/s)
Memory (RAM) 8GB KINGSTON HYPER-X GENESIS DUAL-DDR3 1600MHz, X.M.P (2 x 4GB KIT)
Graphics Card 2GB NVIDIA GEFORCE GTX 650 Ti - DVI, HDMI, VGA - 3D Vision Ready
2nd Graphics Card NONE
Memory - 1st Hard Disk 1TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s HDD 7200RPM 32MB CACHE
2nd Hard Disk NONE
3rd Hard Disk NONE
4th Hard Disk NONE
RAID NONE
1st DVD/BLU-RAY Drive 24x DUAL LAYER DVD WRITER ±R/±RW/RAM
2nd DVD/BLU-RAY Drive NONE
Memory Card Reader NONE
Power Supply 450W Quiet 80 PLUS Dual Rail PSU + 120mm Case Fan
Processor Cooling Corsair H60 Hydro Series High Performance CPU Cooler (£59)
Change to: Corsair H40 Hydro Series High Performance CPU Cooler (£39)
Sound Card ONBOARD 8 CHANNEL (7.1) HIGH DEF AUDIO (AS STANDARD)
Network Facilities 10/100/1000 GIGABIT LAN PORT - AS STANDARD ON ALL PCs

if this problem cannot be resolved I will be getting a new CPU and Motherboard. I also want to know if the new CPU and Motherboard will be conpattable with my specs such as ram and power supply.


Thinking of upgrading to
CPU: Intel Core i5-3570K 3.4GHz Quad-Core Processor
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155

Thanks!

  1. what did you have before? You are caiming slower speeds, but if you had a beter system before that's only to be expected.

    If you're getting far slower than expected speeds the reasons could be legion. On the whole the motherboard an CPU won;t have a ton to do with the problem unless you;ve got a board with a slower PCIE bus than you did before, or you have a dual video card board and are using the second x16 slot for something else. Many dual gpu boards will change from 1 x16 to 2 x8 if both sots are in use. But if the second slot is not used for a crossfire/sli setup all you do is cut your video bandwidth in half.

    Other standard things to check:
    are your drivers up to date?
    Is your hard drive stuffed with garbage?
    did you remember to put all you memory back in correctly?
    did you do a good pasting job with your cpu cooler? It might be a heat problem from a bad cpu/cooler connection.

    Go on nvidia control panel and add games to use the nvidia graphics card. Its possible the 7660g is being used.

    If you want to check what games the graphics card is using download gpuz z and click on sensors and see which gpu from the list at the botrtom is being used. If the 7660g is being used its understandable why such low fps.


    How can I add the games? I do not see an option on the nvidia control panel
    (edit)
    Don't worry, I think i found it now
  3. hafijur may have the correct solution here, but iirc, the internal gpu outputs to the port on the back of the motherboard, while an external gpu outputs through it's own ports.


    which set is your monitor plugged into?

    What do you mean by what set?
  5. there should be several different monitor ports. some are on the motherboard, and some are on the video card
