Hardware question

Hi there fellow folks!

I am not an expert on builds and matching things which end up on a motherboard, so I kindly ask for someone's help!

I mainly play Fortnite, my fps is locked to 144hz (related to my monitor) and everything is set on low with a stretched resolution.

I still get massive FPS drops when in combat for some reason, so here are my specs so you might be able to figure out with me what I need to replace to get better performance and stick around the 144 fps mark.

 

Processor: i5-4440 3.10GHz

GPU: ZOTAC GTX 1050ti 4GB OC Edition

MOBO: Gigabyte B85-HD3

Power supply: 500 watts 

RAM: 8 gigs of DDR3 1600MHz

Combat is usually one of the harder parts of shooting games to render. Your GPU and CPU will also struggle to get higher fps numbers, due to the CPU's age and power, and the GPU's power.

My Build, v2.1 --- CPU: i7-8700K @ 5.2GHz/1.288v || MoBo: Asus ROG STRIX Z390-E Gaming || RAM: 4x4GB G.SKILL Ripjaws 4 2666 14-14-14-33 || Cooler: Custom Loop || GPU: EVGA GTX 1080 Ti SC Black, on water || PSU: EVGA G2 850W || Case: Corsair 450D || SSD: 850 Evo 250GB, Intel 660p 2TB || Storage: WD Blue 2TB || G502 & Glorious PCGR Fully Custom 80% Keyboard || MX34VQ, PG278Q, PB278Q

CPU's usage is always around 90%. Having Fortnite alone at 80-70% most of the times, I didn't really think it was a real thing because it ain't  crashing or freezing as often.

What good CPU would you recommend to match with my gpu?

depends on your budget and if you want to go used or not. and I assume you want to be able to upgrade the gpu in a couple years?

I'm thinking of a perfect match, something that ain't quite ahead of my gpu and won't hold it back at the same time. My budget isn't really the case, I think I'll be able to grab what's right from the market. What would you recommend?

Does that implement my gpu is not that good? even at super low settings and resolutions?

What resolution are you playing at? I assume it's at 1080p? Anyway. As everyone mentioned, your GPU is the issue. Although your CPU is fine with your GPU. It's the resolution you're playing at.

That's because the 1050Ti and high fps aren't that good friends. It's a pretty decent GPU, but 144 fps is a lot, you won't notice any difference between 100 and 144 fps (maybe yes, but only a few people can notice nowadays) so don't worry for the high fps, just lock them a bit lower and that's all

I got the GTX 1070 and I use a 1440p 144hz monitor, I set the graphics at medium, 1440p and I get 144 fps, sometimes it drops and I get something like 110 fps maybe...? It's not a big deal, because I don't usually check the fps counter as the gameplay is smooth and that's all that matters.

Check this video, getting 144 fps AT BEST doesn't mean you have to get them every time, because the more players and the more action make your CPU and GPU work more

It's fine to play at lower fps (80, 90, 100... and that's not "low" fps), higher fps won't make a videogame or a player better (never heard of professional players who started playing at 30, 40 fps?)

Enjoy the game, don't worry about getting more fps unless it's unplayable ?

I totally agree, but it's kinda unplayable at some points, not gonna lie. So basically I should get another gpu and cpu as well? Even at super low settings/resolutions?

I play on a stretched 1080x1080 resolution with everything set on low.

It's a good low-med range card. I'd say it's good at 720p high 1080p medium with some settings set to high

Okay. Try setting your setting at 1080p 60fps and see what the results are.

I am afraid that's something I wouldn't want to go about. My monitor's refresh rate is 144hz so I want to reach that full potential.

the gpu isn't the problem here. my 745 with a 4460s could run it on low-med-high with around 50 fps, so low should be better. the gpu isn't really the problem here. and I won't give you "the perfect match", I'll give you something that's worth your money.

You can't unless you upgrade your CPU and GPU.

yep, but with a 90% usage I'm kinda sure now. then I was only assuming the bottleneck

90% and kinda sure are not reassuring.

 

They are both paradoxes, contradicting each other.

either you grab an I5 4690K, I7 4790, I7 4790K or you go for a full platform upgrade to something like an R5 2600

I spent $2500 on building my PC and all i do with it is play no games atm & watch anime at 1080p(finally) watch YT and write essays...

Builds:

The Toaster Project! Northern Bee!

"Here is some advice that might have gotten lost somewhere along the way in your life. 

 

#1. Treat others as you would like to be treated.

#2. It's best to keep your mouth shut; and appear to be stupid, rather than open it and remove all doubt.

#3. There is nothing "wrong" with being wrong. Learning from a mistake can be more valuable than not making one in the first place.

 

Follow these simple rules in life, and I promise you, things magically get easier. " - MageTank 31-10-2016
