LOW CPU AND GPU USAGE AND LOW FPS?

So , I play GTA with low settings , I play many games with low settings , but why in intensive heavy load moments does my cpu and gpu never really go above 50 percent? I want to make the most out of my components and its a bit upsetting seing the performance with that in mind - I would think its an easy fix? Does anyone else get this problem and is there any ways other than - choosing ultimate performance powerplan and prefer maximum performance in control panel.

Why play GTA on low settings?! Your computer capable of play on max 1080p(without MSAA and else extras), I guess you easy can do 80 fps on max settings, that why GPU not loaded much and cpu around 50% on GTA is normal nothing to complain about :D , cpu is not good to be on max usage

Crank up the detail settings and your GPU usage will go up and the CPU usage may go down. It seems like you just have the wrong settings.

At least 2666mhz I would recommend, maybe you might be able to overclock your RAM without any issues.

is it possible that your gpu stuck on 2d mode? check cpu-z and gpu-z for frequencies

why everybody post the spec of their rig here? i dont! cuz its made of mashed potatoes!

Low Settings will drop that GPU usage and this is typical stuff.
 

You don't want CPU usage to be near Max, but it won't anyway because lower details also drop the CPU-Drawcall needs.

Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz
