i5 3570k Low Framerate

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
I'm experiencing poor performance with the following build, regardless of my in-game settings on windows xp:

i5 3570k
z77x-ud3h
560 ti 448 cores
520W Antec HCG PSU

I can only think of several possibilities as to what the reason might be. Either I need to upgrade to Win7, my PSU cannot handle the load(unlikely since no OC) or perhaps this ancient HDD I have is the culprit. Are there any BIOS settings I would need to change? I have the latest bios version F17. I'll be installing Win7 shortly, hopefully that works. Any input is appreciated.

make sure all your drivers are up to date including nvidia drivers for your graphic card since you are using a 560 Ti and the DirectX is up to date, if you are saying you are getting low frame rate, i suggest you get MSI afterburner to monitor how your GPU behaves when you are in game, and also a CPU meter (i use CPU gadget) these stuff can help you determine where the fault is.

Which game are you getting poor performance in?

Just installed Win7. I have a noticeable improvement, but still not where it should be. My GPU usage hovers around 45-60 and my CPU usage ranges from 50 to just below 80. The game I'm currently testing is CSGO, where people with the same processor or a 2500k get a constant 299 fps. I'm running at a very low resolution(1024x768) with everything turned to low and I only get between 140-240. With XP I was dipping to as low as 110. What could the problem be?
