    Hey guys, I have been using this build for a while now and am currently reaching performance that are not up to my standards. Not sure what is going on because weeks ago i did not have these issues.

    Current Part list: AsRock B250M Pro4 i5 6500 Gskill 16Gb 2133mhz Sandisk SD8SN8U - 512Gb M.2 ssd Gtx Msi gaming 970 Rufus MapQuest UpToDate


    When I play GTA 5 Online at 1600 x 900 res, i sit around 45-50 fps with it lowering as I go up to Full HD. Both the CPU and GPU are at 100% usage. Fortnite at mostly low settings hovers near 60-70 fps. Black ops 4 around 40-50 on lower settings. Etc.. Less than a month ago i was close to 80 fps at 1080p for GTA and 120+ on fortnite. Any idea whats going on? would a gpu upgrade solve my issues?

    Test your system offline to see if it's performing to spec because online gaming is also affected by traffic and bandwidth. If it's working up to spec offline then try online gaming at different times of the day to see if that has an effect on performance.
