Why isn't my 3month gaming PC preforming well? - Page 3

It's entry level; not really bad but faster RAM will have significant performance impacts for some games and tasks. It won't change anything in this case because you're limited by the graphics card rather than the CPU and RAM

Alright, first of all let me tell you that if you don't Overclock your CPU you should get a high quality G.Skill 3600MHz C15 RAM with tight timings on XMP, RAM bandwitch is proving to be helpful in current games, games like Fallout 4, Overwatch and many other new games do like RAM speeds and low latency timings.

https://www.amazon.com/G-Skill-Trident-3600Mhz-PC4-28800-16-16-16-36/dp/B0199SPVLQ/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1468199028&sr=8-1&keywords=G.Skill+DDR4+3600mhz

Those are the best RAM modules you can find right now, C16 for that frequency is pretty dang good, although DDR3 have better ratios like 2400MHz C9 I'm sure we will get better ratios for later RAM release products, and just before you spend money on any new RAM let me make clear that not ALL games will perform better with faster RAM but there are many that will, with drastic performance gains.

Thing is, when you buy overclocked RAM (Any RAM above 2133MHz for DDR4 I think, is considered overclocked) your CPU overclock will falter, but if you don't overclock your CPU then you should definitely get the fastest RAM with the best Bandwitch/Latency ratio, it's just a matter of using XMP and done.

Also you can still overclock your CPU and your RAM at the same time, but if you could achieve 4.8GHz before you will only achieve 4.6GHz with high speed RAM, just an FFY.

Other than that your setup looks perfect, a 980Ti has been relegated to mid range performance now with a GTX 1070 completely obliterating it (Unless OC vs OC).

One thing though, and I think this is why you think you have a problem: There is a huge input lag in Overwatch for some reason whenever you're running your FPS below your monitor refresh rate, you have to run the game at least 40 FPS higher than your In-Game cap (Limit FPS: Display Based) for all input lag to disappear.

This is unusual for PC Games but it is the way it is for this game, not using the game FPS cap (Limit FPS: Display Based on video settings) will also create a noticeable input lag, as long as your GPU is at 100% usage there will be noticeable input lags, its better off if it stays below 80% GPU utilization.

Again, out of the thousand games in Steam or the entire PC platform this is the ONLY game that behaves this way, the only one that I know of at least and Blizzard might just fix it at a later date.
