Low frames on Left 4 Dead 2

Is my computer really this bad?

All maxed out on x4 AA around 45-60fps. This is terrible!! Would an FX-8320 @ 4.4Ghz fix my FPS issues?

A8-6500
GTX 660
8GB RAM

  1. Your CPU is holding you back more than likely. Your GPU is good for medium/high settings in most modern games. L4D2 should be easy to run on it.

    You cannot use an 8350 in your motherboard though. Wrong socket.

    Yeah I'm building a new PC but keeping the 660. I mean this game's recommended specs is like a duo and getting those frames! God I must have a massive bottleneck.
  3. Yep, you simply have Vsync turned on.

    This means you can have a maximum of 60FPS, and every time you WOULD get 59FPS, you would drop to a number that 60 is divisible by.
    Aka 60, 30, 20, 15, 12 ect.

    If you simply open your Nvidia Control panel, and disable Vsync for global settings your problem will be gone!

    This is not how Vsync works unless you have "adaptive Vsync" turned on. Normal old Vsync will let you have any number of FPS 1-60.

    I don't have G-sync nor V-sync enabled. And It mostly sits in the 50's, not 60's.
  6. Would building a new PC with an FX-8320 @4.5Ghz get me over 100 at all times in L4D2?

    YEs it should. buy you would only play at 60fps or you will get BAD screen tearing.

    Alright nice! Thanks dude. Would a Hyper 212 EVO suit overclocking the CPU?
  9. Yes it would be fine. You have no need at all to overclock that CPU for L4D2.

    Other way around, Adaptive Vsync disables Vsync if framerate drops below 60. Regular Vsync works as such.

    Any ways, are you certain that Vsync is selected to Force Off?
    And is there any chance that the HD 8570D on the APU is being used instead of the GTX 660? (Just in case)
  11. Is your monitor connected to the motherboard or the GPU? Should be the GPU as the onboard graphics are disabled when a GPU is installed.

    Nope the 660 is being used. But I'm upgrading anyways
