Slightly disappointed with PC performance.

Why are my games running really badly? My specs here:
i7 7700K
GTX 1050 TI EVGA SC
Ballistix Sport RAM 1/4 slots used 16 GB.
I'm disappointed at the performance I'm getting, I'm receiving 40-55 fps on medium settings with severe spikes on GTA and struggles with speed sometimes. What should I do to fix this? It's just a small problem I'm facing right now.
 
A 7700K and a 1050ti should be eating GTA V alive on ULTRA, you have a issue on the software/ driver side. There are plenty of youtube and other streams with the exact same hardware for you to see what I mean.

top of the line cpu


with a good but not great 1080p card


for decent gta performance with good settings you want at least a gtx 1060


you erred on the side of too much cpu not enough gpu

you need to turn off all advanced gpu settings on gta5, no AA, medium/high settings
 
Did you have a fresh install of Windows when you built the pc?
Are all gpu and motherboard drivers up to date?
What are your cpu & gpu temperatures while gaming?
What are your cpu & gpu usages while gaming.

Please answer all of the above. A program like MSIAfterburn will help you with this. We can then try and diagnose the problem.

However I agree from a pure gaming perspective your pc is unbalanced. Top end cpu with an entry level gpu, very one sided.
 
As I looked into the 1050ti in GTA V, multiple reviewers, GamersNexus Tomshardware...., lead me to believe you should be getting 60fps on ultra. So, check to make sure your CPU n GPU are running as should. As sizzling mentioned, use MSIAfterburner as your GPU software and look into the data that you can track like Clock Speed, % Usage, RAM Usage....

All my drivers are up to date.
My temps for my GPU are 29 Celsius and my CPU is 35 Celsius.
I don't know my usages.
Yes it's a fresh install of windows.

I'm using the 1050 TI as a placeholder until I can afford a GTX 1070 during Christmas. I actually can see how badly I'm being bottlenecked with the GPU and a beast CPU.

I have to reinstall GTA 5. Apparently steam's acting up, I'll get to doing that. Also my PSU is an EVGA Supernova 650+ Gold.
 
It doesn't matter what brand of GPU you have, you can use MSIAfterburner. In the software under Settings - Monitoring...you can choose things like Temps, Usage (CPU n GPU), Clock, FPS.... Give the software a try and share your findings.
