this is the computer I got. It works fine, but it gets really low FPS for some reason. <60 on a lot of games. I saw a youtube video where someone used the same specs as my computer and got a lot higher fps than me on the same settings(more than 100 fps is where I want to be) I played Fortnite(less than 100fps in game) Steel Circus, pubg, apex legends.. My GPU is a nvidia Geforce GTX 1660 ti my processor is a ryzen 7 2700.


My question is: why is my FPS so low. Thanks in advance.

Go in to the Nvidia control panel, under resolution make sure you have the resolution set to match your monitor settings. Also what bios are you running on the motherboard? There have been a ton of updates for that series cpu.

ok see if that helps your fps numbers. Also the bios version is shown in bios when you first start up your computer hold f2 or delete down. It will take you to bios screen. Upper left hand corner usually it will give you bios version #.

Update: I'm still geting low fps after doing all this. All the parts are 100% new. Soooo I don't think I should be having these problems. Could Ram be the problem? I only have 16gb

What settings are you using in Fortnite? If set to Ultra I wouldn't expect you to get much over 95 FPS in that game.

If you have vsync on, 120 is as high as you are going to get. One easy way to verify would be to up the quality a bit and verify minimal, if any, FPS loss.

Also, you said "it" is at 95 C. What line is that on? Can you just send a screenshot of HW Monitor while the computer is at some kind of load (a windowed game, for example)?
 
95C would be too high for either the CPU or GPU, and would result in thermal throttling from whichever component was affected. If it's the CPU, it's possible that the cooler may have not been installed correctly, or got knocked loose during shipping. If those photos of the system are accurate on that product page, it looks like they may be using one of these Zalman coolers rather than the stock AMD cooler...

If it's the CPU that's overheating, you might want to make sure the cooler is secure. Were those the temperatures after running a load for a while? What temperatures do you get just idling on the Windows desktop prior to putting the system under load?
