    I need help with my computer!

    I need help with my computer!
    Hello gentlemen,

    I honestly need your help, The thing is my computer is not performing as it should with what it has. I notice it's lack of performance when i'm playing games or want to stream while playing a game.

    My computer specs are as followed.

    MSI Gaming x H97 Motherboard.
    I7 4970K
    MSI Gaming X 1080
    16 gig Ram
    Evo 970 250 gb ssd
    EVGA SuperNOVA 850 G1+ 850W ATX PSU

    So what do i get when i'm playing games and such right?
    Well for example when i play Fortnite or Black Desert Online.
    It feels like my keyboard and mouse are delayed. I get the exact same feeling when i play overwatch and i make the 3D render above 100 so for example 150. The delay feeling is super annoying and i have no idea how to fix this with the game i play the most.

    My pc wasn't like this before either and reinstalling windows doesn't help anything either.
    Also my computer sometimes does this aswell and i have no idea what the cause is.


    please help, I just want my computer to work as it should.

    thank you for your time and patience.
    Hope to find a solution!

    With online gaming it might not be your computer but, your network and/or modem. Check your latency.

    Hi Rain,

    Have you checked your CPU / GPU temps? You could potentially have some overheating issues if this has only recently started occurring. You have re-installed Windows so this eliminates any rogue processes on your PC hogging your system resources / network bandwidth.

    If you're experiencing input lag, which it sounds like you are from what you wrote, I'd say this is more than likely that your graphics driver settings are set to have V-sync enabled by default on the general profile. You have a 1080, so have a look in your Nvidia control panel and play about with the default profiles. In past experience myself, I have found if you set your default to best quality, the driver will raise everything to the max settings and won't optimise the settings for you.

    Also, looking at your screenshot, I'm guessing you are talking about the black shadow on your icons? Check your graphics drivers are up to date as well.

    Hope this helps you in some way.

    I had a friend just go through a lot of crazy PC issues. His problem arose when his windows 10 updated to version 1803. Most people who are having issues solve their issues by rolling back to an earlier windows issue. Friend's issue was that his display drivers would completely crash when ramping above 60% GPU usage in a fullscreen game. Once he rolled back windows, his issue went away
    I don't even know what I'm doing anymore

    Oh, I had the same problem at work. Actually, not only me but at least three guys had the same problem. I’ve solved it like you all mentioned it above, but I didn’t do it by myself. I asked for help from our IT service company that we collaborate with and they did it easily. I remember that they’ve also installed a very good antivirus on our computers and, by the way, from that time we haven’t faced any related problems. If you are planning to start a business, they will be a good choice. Here https://www.generationix.com/los-ang...d-it-services/ you can find more details. I hope that will help you some day.
