Question New rig but still getting same low FPS issues ?

So I'm having a very frustrating time in the PC world.

On my old rig with a GTX 1070 I played games like Fortnite, CS:GO, lots of shooters no problem. Ran them around 120 frames on 1920x1080 on my Gsync 144Hz monitor.
All of a sudden, out of the blue my games started running terribly with jerks, tears, and I could hardly reach 50 frames on Fortnite, a game that ran on Ultimate settings no problem.
My dumbass thought buying a new GPU would solve all my problems so I bought an EVGA RTX 3060 ti. If anything this made things worse, I thought maybe my CPU was bottlenecking the new GPU (which I think it does a little but not this bad)
Old rigs CPU was an i7-4790k. I also suspected the PSU going bad, was a 650W, plenty of juice for the 3060 ti though.
So I having bought a GPU already decided to go with NZXT's Foundation PC. A prebuilt that comes with onboard graphics on the CPU and has better RAM, MOBO, and CPU (as well as an NVME hard drive, I previously had two SSD's)

To my dismay, the new PC ran everything the same as my old rig.

  • I tried both cards in the new rig and they performed the same as before. The only parts that carried over from my old rig were the GPU's and the SSD's.
  • I've tried running the games with just the NVME and disconnected the Sata cables to my old SSD's.
  • Made sure I'm running the monitor to the GPU before anyone asks :p
  • Tried multiple monitors/cables
  • Tried different power outlets, did a fresh install of windows on my old SSD's before I swapped over
  • Uninstalled/reinstalled clean installed drivers
I'm at a complete loss my friends, and am entirely stumped. This defies all my (limited) knowledge of PC's.
I've posted on here before for my initial issues when I purchased the 3060 ti, as well as other forums, never got close to a solution there.

This is a link to NZXT's Foundation PC that I purchased to try to remedy my sitation, the SPECS are right there. https://nzxt.com/product/foundation-pc-h510-edition
Any help would be GREATLY appreciated, I'm at my wits end.

Edit: Another strange detail I meant to include was that VR seems to be running better than standard games on the new rig. Don't know if that helps but worth mentioning.

you could try updating the BIOS using q-flash inside BIOS and the unzipped BIOS file "MB-478-120 B550UDACY1.zip" on an USB flash drive:

this version is F3D (upload date 23.11.2021), so it could be the same version already installed on your board.
Because it´s an OEM board (gigabyte B550 UD AC), there is no support from gigabyte directly , that´s because it´s so difficult to get an updated BIOS.

The benchmarks are looking good to me.

Did you install windows freshly on your current system?

Install the AMD drivers for your Ryzen 5600G

run the game like this, using high performance mode in windows 11:

I'd say some of my stuttering stopped, but I'm still not getting anywhere near 144 on some games that I used to run on max settings just fine, definite improvement however

This look any better? Put it in the first slot


....sweet Jesus I feel like an idiot. Game is running at 144 now. Still doesn't explain what happened to my old rig. It was definitely plugged into the first slot. I'm having another issue now though with the mouse disconnecting randomly, as well as the keyboard. Little pops and stutters in game that might just be the internet connection. Keyboard freezes while typing and makes meeeeeeeeeeeeeeee do something along those lines as a real time example lol

Have you installed the AMD chipset drivers?
