OK I mean the 2200G is great but you shouldn't expect miracles vs a dedicated GPU like a 1060 or RX 580. With it limited to using system ram it will never be as smooth as a dedicated GPU.
Do the frametimes i sent to you look normal cause if not that tells me it's the ram so i can rma it.

I know i've asked before but is it possible for my ryzen 3 to be causing all the choppyness? or even my motherboard, if it's not i can rule it out.

Fair point but the absolute difference i'm seeing here is a while ago before my psu broke i tested my vega with the geil ram kit (that is bad now) and it was fully fluid with no choppiness at all so idk what's up with that.
I just need your help nailing down the issue, if you have time please answer my previous questions.

Like I said, you're getting BSOD's with the new ram kit. It needs to be replaced before testing anything else.
Ok i get it i'm being desperate, i'll just settle on my ram as being the cause of all the choppiness, ryzen 3 is probably just a choppy piece of tech anyhow due to the lack of vram and it's not dedicated.

thanks for your help.

Ryzen 3 is only going to do so much. The fact it uses system ram means you are never gonna get the most ultra smooth experience using the IGP. It may keep the FPS up as high as a low end GPU, but that low end GPU always has the advantage of dedicated VRAM.

Because of that though the fastest RAM you can run on it (3200mhz is the sweet spot) makes a difference in gaming.

Hi i've noticed that when it comes to golden connectors on ram & gpu's mine aren't entirely clean, they have a few discolouration marks + my GPU (1060) has a decent ammount of scratches on one of its pins, i'm wondering either way if connectors with damage or discolouration or anything else out of the normal could cause jumps in frametimes, sluggishness to smoothness or any other type of issues

I'm sure you've run into this before do you know what it would cause not having the golden connector pins completely clean and intact?

The reason i'm asking is because i recently got a gtx 550 ti to experiment with, with it there is no sluggishness or lag at all, pop in the 1060 and it feels more smoothed out and sluggish, i'm just wondering if the 1060 is 100% culprit or maybe it's the ram? those seem to be the only causes and i'm trying to nail it down.

these are the comparisons between 1060 & gtx 550 ti on minecraft for (5 minutes)

and this is a video of what the pins look like on the 1060 :

A little dirt or scratches on the pins is not going to have any effect on anything, ever.

If you use an OLD (because the 550ti) is ancient GPU and it somehow performs better than a brand new one.... Logic tells me..... The brand new one is not right.
Ok scratches are clear, good, just trying to figure out if it is 1060, so far not looking like it, no errors during benchmarks, no artifacts, no visual damage as far as i can see, should i take the heatsink off and have a deeper look?

however using the gtx 550 ti the sluggishness randomly comes back and fourth between both cards, meaning that'd most likely be my ram causing this right?
