Hi so i just got myself a pretty nice pc, or atleast so i think.

But i am getting the feeling that it isnt performing as it should, and with that i mean that it seems weaker then what i expected

i cant play Borderlands on ultra without the fps dropping to 5-10 (full res)

and i cant even play crysis 3 beat on full resolution on LOW

i cant play guild wars 2 on ultra without the fps dropping to 10 (currently playing on medium, full res at 35 fps)

another example is slender the eight pages i cant play i on ultra aswell

have you tried going to power option and changed the power plan to high performance?

How do i do that?

You can set your hardware in high performance mode using BIOS. When you enter BIOS, you will probably see three options - 1) Quite 2) Normal 3) Performance. You can choose one. Lets see if it works.

try removing a gpu because it might be that the psu is having trouble powering both at full whack

Get a CPU and GPU Temp Monitoring.
I feel like the CPU or the GPU is throttling back to make sure it doesn't cook itself.

Real Temp, GPU-Z
