So I just bought a Gigabyte GTX 1060 6G. After installing this graphics card I've found that my CPU is running 100% load while playing along with the Graphics card.My build is.

Asus Maximus VIII Ranger

CPU Intel Core i5-7500 3.40GHz

RAM 8GB 2400

GTX 1060 6GB Gigabyte Windforce


My last graphics card was an Asus 750ti

I've set my PhysX to my graphics card. Power management mode to Perfer maximum performance. I've deleted and performed clean installs of the nivida drivers. I don't know what I haven't done or am missing. if its bottleneck.

This is happening on all the games i have. ARK, PUBG and Rust. are the only ones downloaded. I recently put my pc together last week. Graphics card was late. I have ARK on medium settings with 70 FPS. I don't getting any stutter.

So I just upgraded my ram from 8 to 16. And I see little to no difference on cpu usage. I've also cleared cmos. And did a clean install of Windows 10
