Solved

I'm actually stumped LOL

Hello everyone,

Having a bit of a strange issue, I'll try to explain it with detail the best I can. Bit of a back story,
This computer https://pcpartpicker.com/user/TheConcept/saved/#view=T6wH99 is one I built just over 2 years ago now. The ISP service which I've had for nearly 9 months now, on speedtest.com my results are http://www.speedtest.net/my-result/6308644638. I am currently using a wired connection, the modem which I am using is about 3 feet away. I also have access to wifi, but it is currently disconnected on my computer ( Though, the problem persists wifi or wired, odd? )

Now, the issue. Whenever I am browsing the internet, and I speedtest, you see the results posted above..everything is fine and dandy. Whenever I load any game ( Browser based -ie; Evony-, Runescape 3 in low detail or Ultra, World of Tanks, ARK, etc my FPS recorder shows FPS drops from 60+ to around 20-30. I've played all these games in the last month, no issue. In the last 5-7 days has this only became a problem.

I have reset the modem, tried going to Wi-Fi, updated all drivers including my GPU's to their most current versions, many different ping tests through Command Prompt, Releasing and Renewing new IP addresses and no fix. Normally, when I've experience slowed internet before, my download speed drops considerably..like I'm sure it does for most of you all. My download speed still stays above 200+Mbps, but the graph goes from stable when a game isn't loading, loaded, or already loaded. When a game is loading, loaded or being played, the download speed graph becomes "spiky". Up, down, up, down, etc. But again, my download speed never goes below 200+ Mbps.

I have 5900 MB of available graphics memory on my GPU. I do have virus protection. My computer hasn't experience any odd bluescreens, shut downs or strange behavior to warrant this odd activity.

If there is anymore information I can provide to help this process along, please do tell. Thank you all ahead of time!

  1. You only have 8GB's of RAM so try freeing up and optimize a bit. Run ccleaner and advanced systemcare. Use ccleaner to fix your registry. Use advanced systemcare scan to fix bad settings and boost to shut down sevices you dont need. They are in the popular downloads list in the link.

  2. Your FPS has nothing to do with those games using Internet. It is not like they are tired frame by frame. Rather its sent in packs but still your FPS wouldn't change. So if you are getting half the FPS you were seeing just a week ago, I would say something is up with the computer. First off if you updated any drivers since you noticed the problem, roll them back. If not, than try and update the drivers and see if that solves the problem.

    I have done both in the past, but I re-downloaded both and did it again. Still the same result with spiky graph in correlation with a game being open and/or played. Games like World of Tanks use 1.5 GB and RS3 2GB, not much of anything really.

    I have my auto-updates to drivers off. So nothing was updated for a problem to occur. I have since then updated everything in response to the one above.
  5. Use DDU to uninstall the graphics driver again and then reinstall it from scratch. Also, run CCleaner like elbert suggested. Hopefully those two things will at least help if not fix the issue outright.

    I have done both and still only when games are the issue. With my Advanced System Care I can see the Ram and CPU usage. Both are low and don't peak over 30% when ANY game is loaded really.
  7. have you tested say runescape on a differant browser? Try firefox and or chrome. Make sure its not just Internet explorer.

    Runescape 3 is played through a client, it is nolonger web-based.

    Ok try updating all your drivers and if that doesn't work update your bios if not the latest. Use driver booster to see which driver updates you need. Its number 1 on the popular downloads list.
