High FPS but lag

Hello there! I really need some help!!

 

I recently upgraded my pc with a new set of ram sticks, a new gpu and a new ssd. My problem is that when i play games like NFS Rivals and BF4 i get good fps but the game seems laggy. It seems as some frames get skipped and not projected on the screen. This happens on any resolution and with fps ranging from 45-180(low-ultra setting). Can anyone tell my what is going on? At first i thought that my cpu might be bottlenecking but at NFS its usage is aroung 50%. Please HELP!!! :S

 

My PC:

Intel i3 3240 3.4GHz (LGA1155)

Asus R9 270X 2GB

Kingston Hyper X FURY 1600MHz 2x4Gb

Coolermaster B500 (500W)

Gigabyte B75-D3V

KIngston Hyper X SSD 120GB

Splash some water on it, might be overheating. No but seriously you need to try and explain the problem better if you want a solution.

Are you sure nothing is running in the background that may be interfering (Malware etc...)

 

It could also be EA and their game code... :P

But the cpu usage on NFS RIvals is at 50% and adding to that, the game is locked at 30fps and when i turn down the graphics i get no improvement....

Strange... I used to play the Sims 3 on my PC and it ran at a high FPS, but it froze and lagged every now and then.

 

Make sure all your drivers are up to date, especially your Graphics drivers, they include fixes for games most of the time.

 

Maybe try reinstalling the game?

 

Also check your HDD usage during gameplay especially when it freezes, it could be trying to load textures that the HDD cannot supply fast enough, how much RAM do you have?

Im using VGA (with a VGA adaptor as the GPU does not have a VGA port)

 

I have 8Gb of RAM and the game is saved on the SSD so i dont think that the loading of the textures is really an issue.

Have you tried running Memtest 86? Also run CHKDSK and see if it finds any errors.

 

If you can't find anything, try putting your old GPU in and see if it still lags.

how do i set my refresh rate?

It appears like some frames get skipped during gameplay ( the AVG FPS are high but those frames that get skipped are pretty noticeable, i'll try to record and post a video so you can see what am i talking about)

can you monitor GPU load...CPU load won't mean anyting.

MSI afterburner, ASUS GPU Tweak are good. Most common is MSI Afterburner though.

 

Also, your CPU @ 50% doesn't mean it's not bottlenecking.

Do u know any good programs for doing that? (monitoring GPU load)

Quick tutorial on how to get GPÜ load on screen while playing (Make sure VSYNC is turned OFF while you do that)

I doubt it's GPU. Try checking all resource usages from task manager when the problem happens. I mean all resources - CPU, Memory, Hard Disk, and Network
