Bottleneck on 1050ti?

So long story short, due to the current shortage of parts I built an extra PC from parts that I could gather for cheap. Got some basically for free and I ended up paying 38 euros for the whole thing.

Specs: 
Xeon 1230v2
8GB (2x4GB) 1600 DDR3

GTX 1050ti
500GB Samsung 850  EVO

So nothing fancy, but should be alright. FPS are fine most of the time, but having quite a bit of experience with building PCs I ran into a very strange thing. My GPU utilization is very low and I have never ever seen that before. The CPU is NOT the problem as it is basically never at 100%, not even on a single core. There is always room. 
I also tried some benchmarks and the GPU can go up to 100% usage in firestrike. 
Performance settings are all set to maximum performance, windows and nvidia drivers.

I am adding a screenshot from GTA with the afterburner overlay and that pretty much shows what it looks like most of the time. 

Any ideas?

The problem you arwnt considering is that a cpu doesnt have to be fully loaded to be the bottleneck. Programs that arent optomized for several cores wont actually max out the cores that they are using. So you can have a situation where the cpu isnt being used fully becuase the program cant use each core fully thus it hold back the gpu.

 

Case and point, my daily is a dual 1366 system which has the exact same issue. Sucks but thats programming for ya

Still...50% usage seems extremely low. 
And I found some youtube videos of people with similar setups and they don't seem to have these problems...

Nvidia drivers apparently also have significant driver overhead that affects slower/older CPUs with fewer cores. It could be your Ivy Bridge 4/8 chip is just not cutting it.

I noticed you've got 60 fps in that screenshot. Is there an fps limit in the settings?

I WILL find your ITX build thread, and I WILL recommend the SIlverstone Sugo SG13B

 

Primary PC:

i7 8086k (won) - EVGA Z370 Classified K - G.Skill Trident Z RGB - Force MP500 - Jedi Order Titan Xp - Hyper 212 Black (with RGB Riing flair) - EVGA G2 650W - Black and green theme, Razer brainwashed me.

Draws 400 watts under max load, for reference.

 

Linux Proliant ML150 G6:

Dual Xeon X5560 - 24GB ECC DDR3 - GTX 750 TI - old Seagate 1.5TB HDD - Dark moded Ubuntu (and Win7, cuz why not)

 

How many watts do I need? Seasonic Focus threadUserbenchmark (Et al.) is trash explained, PSU misconceptions, protections explainedgroup reg is bad

So...yeah. You were right. Thank you. I really am confused a bit, but that is what it is. Never had this much of a bottleneck.
