Why isnt my pc performing

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

More about isnt performing
  1. you dont need a second gpu.

    all drivers up to date?
    how are the temperatures?

    your build should perform like you expected it....
  2. Yes all the drivers are up to date, and the case is cool aswell as the components

    What do u mean with expected it? is it supposed tp perform better or worse?
  4. Plz anyone?
  5. have you tried going to power option and changed the power plan to high performance?
  6. How do i do that?
  7. 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.
  8. try removing a gpu because it might be that the psu is having trouble powering both at full whack
  9. 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.
