Hi folks!
So basically my problem is that every game i play on my computer lags. Its like a constant lag/stuttering/low fps when large and detailed areas occur. I've had this problem for a long while now, and I got a tip from someone that my CPU would be a bottleneck in my build, so i replaced it, but still get the same old freaking stuttering. I have got my drivers up to date, i have updated the BIOS, and I've tried literally everything! I ran Prime95 to test if my CPU was stable, tried to overclock it to like 4ghz, but it was perfectly okay, and no change in the stuttering. I cant think of anything that could possibly be causing the madness! My build should be powerful enough to run all the games I have. Some examples are Hitman: Absolution, Crysis 3, Sleeping Dogs, BF3 etc. Hitman and Sleeping Dogs doesn't run smooth on higher than LOW, and even lots of lagging in Hitman, just to give you guys a perspective. My specs are:
Gigabyte GA UD3 mobo
HD 7850 DirectCU2 gpu
1tb seagate hdd
600w corsair psu
amd fx-8320 8-core cpu
2 sticks of 4 gb corsair ram
Please if anyone has any clue of what my problem could be, then leave a comment!

Well i ran Fur Mark, and the usage of the GPU was about 90% i think. Temp never crossed 69 degrees.

What is a little weak, my CPU? I have watched lots of guys on Youtube, which has both fx-8320 and hd 7850 together, and they run BF3 and such games on ultra settings perfectly fine. I also know a guy with the newer cpu, the fx-8350, and he uses a lot more powerful GPU than me, so apparently the CPU is not a bottleneck...
Thank you for your reply btw!

Hi, thnx for reply!
It should not be at power saving mode. The last time i checked those settings, it was on performance, but its actually a long time since i checked those settings, so they might have changed. I'll take a look:)
