Hello everyone, I bought my first gaming PC on the 2013 black friday sale and got it prebuild lets say i mean it was prepared i mean hardware , left me only to install windows. Now i clean installed windows 7 x64 and drivers and i have in some games fps drops like CSGO, BF4 etc.
My pc specs:

CPU: FX-8350 4.0Ghz
RAM: KINGSTON 8GB 1333Mhz DDR3
HDD:WD 1TB 64MB 7200RPM
POWER SUPPLY: SEGOTEP RAYNOR POWER 650W
CASE: RAIDMAX SUPER HELIOS BLACK
MOTHERBOARD: ASROCK 970 EXTREME 4
CPU COOLER: COOLERMASTER HYPER 212 EVO
FAN: 1 FROM THE CASE + NOCTUA NF-S12B FLX 120MM
OS: WINDOWS 7 X64
MONITOR: ASUS ML249H 24INCH
I need to mention that I play games on 1920x1080 60Hz.
So whats my problem? Please help. Thank you.
First thing that pops to mind is whether you have all the latest drivers installed for your motherboard and graphics card. Check that first if I were you.
Well I clean installed the gpu drivers but for the motherboard u mean the bios update cause the drivers i installed were those from my motherboards dvd, i never updated the bios bcuz im afraid not to ruin my pc but in my country i have a service of updating bios very cheap . Only my nvidia drivers are updated the rest i dont think so, at least its not me who update em.
Well if you have at least the drivers for your motherboard that came on the disk with the motherboard then they should work and although they may not be as up to date as possible they should work well enough and since your gpu drivers are updated properly there shouldn't be a problem. I wouldn't pay to get drivers installed though because it is as simple as going to the manufacturers website, finding your model and then just downloading all of them but you don't have to if you don't want. the ones on the disk will be fine and shouldn't effect fps drops much.
The only reason I can then think of is that either your GPU isn't fast enough or you are exceeding the memory on the GPU. Exceeding the memory dramatically effects performance and can be a killer to frame rates so if you could find some way to measure how much of your GPU memory is being utilised then you could check to see if that is the problem.
