I am hoping someone can help me with a new build. I will be as detailed as I can be while trying to keep it short. I recently built my first PC. I gathered some info from multiple sources and got things together from Micro Center. My main issue is the quality of gaming my build offers. I will list the build below. I have checked similar build and it appears to be performing to spec. There is nothing wrong with any of the components or set up. Micro Center looked at it, as well.. My main goal was to have a set up perform better than my ps5 and the xbox series x. Micro center experts helped me build something around next gen consoles. I hate to say it but my ps5 performs better. And quite honestly my xbox one x does, too. I thought it was my monitor so I went and got a new one and immediately took it back because it was horrible. I thought I would seek answers here to see if someone can help. I have played with the nvidia control panel settings and set them to what others with the same setup as myself. I have the settings in game set to the recommended settings. I am hoping there is something I am missing and that this PC can perform a little better. Also, I have updated all the drivers for each component. I took it to micro center and the tech said "it's a beast of a machine and nothing is wrong". I hope I didn't just spend this much money for this quality of gaming. Thank you for taking the time to read this. I appreciate it all feedback


Here are the parts


Ryzen 5 5600x

Nvidia 3070 ti

Corsair vengeance rgb pro 8x2 ddr4

Asus b550 gaming plus

Lg c7 4k 55inch 60hz 

OS Windows 10


P.S. I tried to play on an asus tuf vg27aq monitor because someone said it might be because of the lower refresh rate on my lg TV. 60hz. However, I quickly realised that wasn't the case. I tried playing with the gaming monitors settings but didn't see it would help no matter how many changes were made.

My guess is either you couldnt tell the difference well (such people do exist) or have higher expectation according to the price which under the current GPU market, makes PCs quite bad value compared to the past.


How much fps and what settings did you run in those games? Consoles typically run a mix of lowest and low settings in 4K mode (probably not even 60fps, just 30fps). To compare it to PC you also need to run lower settings.

I tried messing with several settings to see if it would compare to ps5. Some games would get well over 150 fps and others at 60 fps. I have done some benchmarks and it it says that my setup is in the 79th percentile. I ran the heaven unigine at extreme performance. And this is what I got

Fps 231.6

Score 5834

Present settings were extreme.
