No stranger to PC builds, but this is mighty strange.

I decided to get a 1440P ultrawide. Seemed like a good investment considering my specs: r7 3700X @4.4G all cores, 16GB of 3200Mhz CL16, RTX2080, all water cooled.

Long and short, the FPS numbers I am getting are dismal. I am not even breaking 60FPS in war thunder. People with RTX2060s are recording FPS well into the 140+ range at normal 1440P (not ultrawide).

Battlefront 2? I can't break 60FPS either. The bloody menu screens lag. Feels like I'm playing on a freaking potato. I can provide more figures if you like, but all of these seem insanely low. Halp?

What are cpu and gpu temperatures and usage when in game?
What speed (GHz) is the cpu at when gaming?
Is your RAM 2x8gb or 1x16gb?
Thanks for the reply! I believe I figured it out. After a support session with Samsung (the maker of my display), they deduced that I needed to use the 2nd HDMI port and that my stuttering issues were related to the controller (HDMI 1.4 I think) on port 1. Things cleared up after that and the display ran at 75Hz too.
