Hello Everyone:)
I just bought Gtx 1050ti 4GB but i did'nt increase my Ram its still 4Gb So i install some games(Mafia 3,Batman Arkham Knight)....i know 4Gb ram is very low for these games and these games require 6Gb minimum and 8Gb maximum....While playing these games they lags pretty much and it uses 93% of Ram...My Cpu temperature also goes to 70C to 80C(Idle or using app like chrome temperature is 50C).....Does it lags just bcoz of low Ram or does it lags bcoz of both low ram and high temperature of Cpu??

My current Specs are
Core i5 650 @ 3.20GHz 3.19GHz
Ram 4Gb
Windows 10 64-bit
Gtx 1050ti 4Gb

Thanks in advance:)

your cpu is getting a bit old though how much it impact performances compared to your expectations is be a bit hard to assess, as for cpu temperatures, intel cpu throttles their performances well beyond the 80C although it's an uncomfortably hot temperature.

4gb of ram however is clearly not enough.

I've upgraded to 16gb of ram sometime ago because 8gb wasn't cutting it with Just Cause 3.
On the other hand I don't think WB ever fixed arkham knight problems so it may never run well on pc

Are you planning to buy a 8gb kit to complement your 4gb kit or are you buying a 4gb kit?
For the cpu temp, it's fine though you might want to open your case an see if your cooler need to be cleaned.
I have a rx480 4gb, at 8gb I had some stuttering, but the game was playable. 1050 ti should play jc3 fine as well.

In some market the price difference between 2gb and 4gb stick can be small to none. Just have a look before you buy.
