Hi everyone! I have a GTX 560 TI 1GB paired with an I3 9100 with 8GB RAM and my CPU usage Is generally high at 100 In games like GTA IV.
I've tried pretty much anything, even lower some settings to low but the usage Is still high. Could It be my GPU fault? Plox help

75c is high, check the cooler?

what the motherboard and budget?
My motherboard Is an Asus Prime H310M-K R2.0 1151 and the cooler (for now) is the Intel one. I checked It recently, and It sticks pretty tight to the Motherboard

Well... generally my Budget Is 400lei (that means 98 dollars)

Actually.. I realized that the problem It's with the game itself due to bad optimizations. Far Cry 3 for example uses 84 or even 94 of the GPU In High/V.High Settings and 54 usage of the CPU, while GTA IV reaches 94 CPU usage with "High" shadows settings. Apparently, only by lowering the shadows to "off" I get good usage of both of them (but still not max usage of the GPU). Thanks for the help, nonetheless! (And seems like I need something more powerful for IV)
