Major FPS Problem [SOLVED]

My specs are seen in the first picture and when I try to run the game on the lowest settings, windowed and 1024 x 768, I get a maximum of 35-39fps.
I got a seasonic x750 gold +80 750w power supply and my graphic card is a sapphire radeon hd 7970 3gb and my drivers are updated, is there a way for me to increase fps? Should I get a new monitor?

  1. If you have a 1024 x768 monitor you need one, your hardware is good for 1080P.
  2. I know you're playing it in Window'd mode at 1024x768..

    Is your monitor 1024x768?.. if its not, try playing it in full screen with the exact resolution of your monitor, and some of the older monitors actually like full screen and v-synced.. give it a shot.
  3. My monitor is a 1600 x 1050, but when I switch the resolution to that my fps drops down to like 15-20fps with same settings.
  4. The resolution doesn't matter as much as trying it in full screen with that resolution..

    What other games do you play on that build that run fine?

    can i get a snapshot of all running processes while the game is open?

    Have you scanned for viruses? (use avast boot scan, malwarebytes, and maybe CC Cleaner)
  5. Technically none of my games run fine at all, even my PC which I bought back in 2007 was way better when it came to fps compared to this build I got now. I even checked requirements for DayZ Standalone and everything is above recommended but when I start playing the game in fullscreen 1600x1050 I just get low fps.
    Here's a picture of all the processors running
    I haven't downloaded a antivirus yet, I just finished this built and the only thing I've done is updated all my drivers and windows updates and downloaded steam and google chrome.
  6. I did a quick scan of my computer and it didn't register any unwanted and threatening programs.
  7. If this happens in all/most games, and min to max only gives you -1fps.. something is wrong,

    Can you give me your Motherboard model?..
    and what video driver are you using?
  8. Almost behaves like it is running on the integrated GPU so to make sure are you connecting the monitor to the card not the motherboard outputs?
  9. I got a ASRock Z77 Extreme4 mobo.
    I assume this is what you're looking for?

  10. My VGI cable is plugged into my mobo, my graphic card doesn't have a VGI input, since my monitor is 6 years old.
  11. It is displaying the onboard so back to the question are you connecting the monitor to the board not the card? Only way to use the card is to connect to it.
  12. Best answer
    That is it you have to connect to the card to use it DVI-I to VGA adapter and you can use your old monitor!
  13. The cable is plugged into the motherboard/io shield, the io shield is not a part of the card.

    Use a converter from VGA to DVI or whatever your graphics card has.. you must connect the monitor the graphics card to use it.
  15. I got a DVI-I, I'll attach it to my VGI and try it out.
  16. It all works now, much appriciated The Ginger and rolli59 - But now, when I start up any .exe files I get spammed with errors and my antivirus asking me to clean it.
  17. Ew, Conduit.. you may want to open another thread now that is has nothing to do with your video..

    but you will have to go into extentions in chrome uninstall it.. it is a nasty re-direct. How'd you manage to get that with a new PC?.. Did you try installing something from Softpedia?..
  18. "C:\.................... is either not intended to run Windows, or it contains errors. Try installing the program again using the original installation media, or contact your system administrator, or software retailer for help."
  19. Can you direct me to which forum I need to go to now?
  20. Thanks for the translation!..

    You have to get rid of everything that has to do with Search Protect.. It is an extension that re-directs google searches, and looks at search history..

    that might help..
  21. I have no clue how I ended up getting Search Protect.
  22. Its okay, i am very strict with what i download and install and i've managed to get it a couple of times..
  23. Be careful with downloads and unselect all the extra stuff they want you to install with it on default. Things like toolbars utilities and so on.
