poor bf1 fps

while playing Battlefield 1 i experience extremely bad fps and stuttering to the point where it is unplayable on any settings, even the nvidia suggested settings. i dont believe my pc is the problem as it should easilly be able to run it. i5 6600k, GTX 1060, 8GB RAM, 1tb storage - attempting to play at 2560x1080

  5. 1 stick of...DDR3-1866? DDR4-3200? Also, what's the actual model of your PSU?

    Having a single stick of RAM is generally a bad idea, as it leaves you with no redundancy should that one go bad. You're always better off getting 2x4GB than getting 1x8GB even though they're the same GB total.

  7. Run a memory test and see what it reports. Let's try to rule out that single stick of RAM.

    Also, that PSU doesn't have an 80+ rating, which means it's potentially poor quality. 80+ ratings aren't based on the PSU's quality, they're based on the PSU's power efficiency; that said, having a better 80+ rating usually means better quality because in order to have better efficiency you need better quality parts.

    I've been reading a lot of posts on here about how the Corsair PSU's are rather poor quality, and the VS series (without 80+ ratings) seem to be the worst of the lot. Upgrading your PSU, even if you don't get a higher wattage, seems like a good next step. Even if that doesn't fix your particular issue, you will have gotten away from the potential bad quality of your current PSU.

    These two PSU's are higher wattage and have 80+ Bronze ratings, but are both only $40.
