|About 1 and a half month ago I finally saved up enough to afford a mid-range gaming computer that I plan to upgrade overtime, instead of spending big money all at once.|
I didn't expect to run all the latest games on ultra, since it was more aimed towards MMOs, firs-person shooters and other light type of games, but naturally I also wanted to try some of the latest and or older games out there with my PS4 sold.
GPU: ASUS GeForce GTX960 2GB Turbo (Memory clock with FOC: 7010, GPU Boost Clock: 1253) Note that this card came factory overclocked, I've made no adjustments my self.
RAM: Kingston Value DDR4 2133MHz 8GB
CPU: Intel Core i5-6500 Skylake 3,2 GHz
Power Supply: Corsair VS550 550W KPC Bulk Edition
Motherboard: ASUS B150M-A, Socket-1151
But after trying some of the latest games, like GTA V, Batman Arkham Knight, Mirror's Edge Catalyst, Subnautica, Need for Speed 2015 all running on recommended settings, I get massive stutters whenever the game has to load the world around the player character. Figured I would try with all the settings on their lowest and the issue still persists, but on older games (pre 2014) I get no such lag spikes at all.
It's understandable that with a 2GB GPU (which is not suffecient for alot of modern games), my limits will be low, with newer games having higher resolution textures and better AA/SMAA, but it should not be present on the lowest settings when even lowest settings for alot of games are below my specs. Alot of other people have better luck with the GTX 960. Some tell me it's my GPU, some tells me it's the amount of RAM and others blame my CPU.
I'm no tech genious and trying to troubleshoot the issue has been hard for me, Task Manager shows my CPU & RAM is on stable numbers during those games and my GPU along with my temps are all within the 40-50c's. I would really appreciate some help with this, I do have a 3 year warranty for my PC with all the parts so if the conclusion is faulty parts, they can be replaced.
