GPU usage while gaming

I play a few video games on my PC, and I noticed after a while that the game gets laggy though my GPU usage is only 20-25%. Does anyone how to make games use more GPU power so they can perform better?

~thanks

  1. What kind of computer do you have? Can you list out the parts and specifications?
  2. Have you tried monitoring your GPU and as well as your CPU temp? Could be heat issue.

    it depends on the game engine / graphics settings.

    it would be helpful if you post your pc specs
