    Good FPS in Apex Legends But Low FPS in Dota 2

    Thank you for the suggestion, friend! I've looked up on CPU throttling and found out that I have been on Power Saver plan all this time. I didn't figure out how ThrottleStop worked, but the High Performance power plan did the trick! Dota 2 is now going CPU and GPU usage! Your suggestion also helped me identify the problem! Thanks, guys.

    Okay, thank you for the reply! I will try to use ThrottleStop. Thanks for the suggestion! Also, I'm using a HP Compaq Elite 8300 SFF (PSU at 240W). The motherboard is OEM.

    Good FPS in Apex Legends But Low FPS in Dota 2

    I hadn't noticed that. I also don't quite understand that. Could you please elaborate?
  4. I have performance issues in Dota 2. I have an Intel Core i3-3220, a GT 1030 2GB GDDR5, and a HyperX 8GB 1866mhz memory. I can run Apex Legends on 1080p low and it can maximize CPU and GPU at around 100%. However, Dota 2 only uses below 50% CPU and GPU usage and is giving me very poor performance. How can I improve my performance in this game? Dota 2 in 1080p High with 15fps Apex Legends in 720p low with constant 60fps. My main issue here is that why is Dota 2 not using the full power of the CPU and GPU? I can understand why Apex Legends is so hard to run, but at least it is using a lot of the resources.

    Low CPU and GPU usage on Dota 2 and other eSports titles

    Yes, locked it to 60fps, which is useless since it can't even reach that far.
  6. I currently have a Intel Core i3-3220 with a GT 1030 2GB GDDR5 and 8GB 1866mHz memory. I bought the GPU and RAM a little later to imrpove my games performance so it would reach a constant 60fps on games like Dota 2, CS:GO, and Apex Legends. However, I did not seem to get that performance in Dota 2 (In 1080p high) and I was so disappointed that it would average around 30-45fps, when I know the graphics cars can run it at 60fps on ultra (with a better CPU). This is my target resolution and quality in Dota 2 (1080p High), but the performance is bad. It's at 15fps in just a small fight in the game. Literally unplayable. Now, I have toned the settinga down to low, hoping that it would give me a better experience This is the result. There isn't even much going on here, only two heroes pushing a tower. The statistics are there in the photos, and I don't know why neither the CPU nor GPU are using resources to make it better. I upgraded from the R7 240 to the GT 1030 in hopes that I would have a better experience, but so far the only thing it's done is make me go from slightly playable 720p Dota 2 to Okay 720p Dota 2

    I have it turned on in Dota 2 because it helps with smoothing.
  8. I currently have a Intel Core i3-3220 with a GT 1030 2GB GDDR5 and 8GB 1866mHz memory. I bought the GPU and RAM a little later to imrpove my games performance so it would reach a constant 60fps on games like Dota 2, CS:GO, and Apex Legends. However, I did not seem to get that performance in Dota 2 (In 1080p high) and I was so disappointed that it would average around 30-45fps, when I know the graphics cars can run it at 60fps on ultra (with a better CPU).I know that the CPU is old, but when I ran the MSI Afterburner monitor, it only showed the GPU using around 30-50% usage and the CPU around 40-60% when the only thing I'm doing is gaming (no background programs, just Steam and Dota 2 itself). It cannot even run Apex Legends smoothly at 1080p lowest.Is the CPU and GPU load usually like this or are they restricted for some reason? If so, what should I do to fully enhance my gaming experience?
  9. The GT 1030 DDR4 and GDDR5 It could be a fun addition to the "low-end sh*t graphics card" series. But seriously, the gddr5 version is 100% better than the gddr4 version and they're selling it at the same price!

    RX550, GT1030, OR GTX750/GTX750 Ti for a 240W Power Supply

    Thanks for the replies! I have decided on a GT 1030 mainly because of its 30W max TDP, which is the same as my current R7 240. The RX550 falls short to the GT1030--- at the same price. The 750ti's power consumption would just be too high; not worth risking the entire pc for a mere 10-15fps. I also forgot to mention that I was only planning to play Dota 2, CS:GO, Fortnite, LoL, Killing Floor 2, and some triple A games on 720p resolution because my 1080p one is on my main pc.
  11. I've recently watched the "Upgrading the $69 dollar gaming PC" video and wanted to try it on my HP Compaq system as well. I currently have an R7 240 in it (yes, I've "modified" the case to fit it in) and I don't have to worry about the power limit since it's just around 20-25 max TDP. Now, I want to upgrade it, so I'm looking for the perfect GPU to fit it in there without comprimising safety. The prices are kind of near each other, and so I don't have a problem with that. I would like the GTX750/750ti since it gives the best performance out of the three. The RX550 is just slightly lower than the GT1030, but also cheaper at around $8-$10. TL;DR Which graphics card should I put on a system with a 240W max power supply.

    GTX 1050 on a 240w power supply?

    Thank you! Guess I'm good to go then. Thanks for all your help, guys!

    There's nothing written on the motherboard itself, and I didn't find anything on these sites, maybe you guys can try and help me? I really don't know what I'm looking for. I can't seem to find the limit thing that you guys are saying. There's nothing on the motherboard and I've already checked here: https://support.hp.com/us-en/product/HP-Compaq-Elite-8300-Small-Form-Factor-PC/5232852 http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03347207 http://h10032.www1.hp.com/ctg/Manual/c03612803

    How do I check? And is that a bad thing if it is?

    I also notice that these are the only connectors from the PSU to the system: A 4-pin connector for the CPU, a 6-pin connector to the motherboard, and that other thing that I don't know what the use is for. Maybe I can buy a standard ATX PSU and use it here?
