Hi, i recently ordered a gtx 1080 G1 gigabyte, when i set it up, i noticed i am only getting 30fps on FORTNITE and black ops 2 with a lot of stutter, im not sure if this is because of my pc specs but i just want answers.
Specs:
Intel core i5 7400 3.00 GHz
gtx 1080 G1 gigabyte
8GB hyper x ram
msi pro gaming carbon motherboard
Corsair bronze 500w power supply.

When i check task manager, my memory usage is 2000mb when running fortnite, and my gpu usage is like 10% and under. When i run heaven benchmark on high, i get 60 fps with a lot of stutter on high. I have also noticed a buzzing noise when running the card under load (Which i think is coil whining). The temperature of the card is around 40C when idle and 55-60C when running heaven benchmark.
I am not sure why i cant run games as i have seen others run games with an i5 7400 and a gtx 1080... Any help would be appreciated.
Thanks
 
First, your power supply isn't big enough. You need a 600 watt or more for a gtx 1080.
2nd, your CPU is going to limit that 1080. A 7400 is a 4 core 4 thread CPU. I wouldn't pair more than a gtx 1660ti with a 7400.
I would reinstall drivers and operating system.

Ok thank you. So would the psu be the main reason as to why im only getting 30fps?

Would it be better to use my 1060 instead for a month or two until i get new parts??
