I have an RX 480 8GB GPU and an i5-7500 (3.40Ghz) LGA 1151.

I havent played a game in ages, but when I went to play gta online, it ran at barely 1fps, it normally runs at 60+ with most graphics on high. So I set everything to minimum and I only got 13ish fps. Looking in MSI afterburner, it's showing both my RX480 and "GPU 2" which is actually my CPU. RX480 is running at 0% and the "GPU2" at maybe 60%. I thought it could be a connection but all my programs show as the card being connected and are just not using it. I can also get the fans to spin so it's connected. Also, all my drivers are up to date so it's not that.
Any Ideas?


Cheers

The monitor it plugged into the gpu and not the motherboard?
I've always had the HDMI in my gpu, but I've been doing a lot of work with my raspberry pi recently, using my computers HDMI. I put it back in the motherboard instead of the GPU last time I used it.. Just put it back in my GPU and that's fixed it.

Thanks man
