Having low fps when gaming with GTX960 and i7 930 @ 2.80 GHz

Hello,

this is my first time asking something on the forum here, sorry if it's posted on the wrong thread.

So my question is whenever I play with friends and we play for example PUBG (PlayerUnknown's BattleGround) my friends have way better fps than me. I currently have a GTX960 and a friend of mine has a 770. He gets 100 fps while I merely get 53 fps max on PUBG. Is my Graphic Card bottlenecking or something? And how do I get more fps?

My current setup is:

GPU: MSI GeForce GTX960 4G
CPU: Intel Core i7 930 @ 2.80 GHZ
MotherBoard: Gigabyte X58A-UD7
RAM: 8GB

And I have PUBG and such installed on my SSD.

I hope my question is clear
Thanks in advance

  1. I would say that it is your CPU that is holding you back. What CPU is your friend using? It is never JUST down to the GPU, as the processor has to pass on the info to the Graphics card. Can you download and install open hardware monitor: http://openhardwaremonitor.org/ Play some games as you would normally, and have a look at the % tables for your CPU cores, and the same for your GPU. If you find that the CPU is at 100% and your GPU is much less than that, there is your problem.

    Hope this makes sense.

    Ok thanks i'll use that software and see if that's the problem, I was already guessing it had something to do with my CPU or Motherboard. Would overclocking it to 4.0 GHz help? Obviously buying new CPU would help more

    Yes, do use that software and see what is going on. The overclocking probably won't realise a huge amount of a gain, as it is all down to the number of cores and threads. but would be worth doing if you can, you would squeeze a few more FPS out of it. If you wanted to buy a new CPU (a newer generation of chip) bear in mind that you would have to change your motherboard and RAM! So maybe a complete new (or later used) PC may be in order for you.
