Heavily Lagging! Any solutions?

Question

PuniFy

I have A FIREND with the following PC specifications :

 

CPU : Intel i3-3200

GPU: AMD Radeon HD7770

RAM: 8GB DDR3

Win8 64bit

 

As I liked his rig so much i decided to build the same one as him (not entirely). So this are MY specifications :

 

CPU : Intel i3-3220

GPU: AMD Radeon HD7770

RAM: 8GB DDR3

Win8.1 64bit

 

Now, the problem is that he runs GTA V at more than 45FPS constantly :blink: with all the settings maxed and i can't even reach 15FPS :panic::cry: with settings set as low as possible. The only noticeable difference between our PC's is the Windows and the hard disk (he has a 7200rpm one, i have a 5700 or 5900rpm one) , So what could be the problem here? I'm really desperate for help. :barf::cry:

 

I solved the problem : it's the hard drive, i looked it up and i actually have 5400rpm :panic: .. I'll buy a new one and hope for the best thanks for the help guys

If that's really the only difference (and probably even if it isnt) then you already answered your own question. That is a terribly slow hard drive. My 7200rpm one bottlenecks me a bit in ARMA, especially when driving fast and loading several entire square kilometers of terrain every couple seconds.

so there's absolutely no other option but to buy a new hard drive?

dude, HD7770 come with various edition, especially the 1GB & 2GB VRAM edition

there are performance impact when using the 1GB edition, I have one in my PC Setup

I'm getting about 20-30 FPS at medium settings, can't run it at high settings, very unplayable FPS

therefore, using the 2GB edition does make a huge performance enhancement.

Press Windows key+R, type dxdiag and press enter, then go to the 'display' tab and see what's under approx. total memory; it's worth having your friend do it as well, to make sure you have the same VRAM.

 

Either way, see how your performance improves if you turn off TXAA, MSAA and FXAA and force them through the catalyst control centre.

then, I Assume that could be your system is the problem

basically, you and your friend has same PC like you said before. but not the systems

cause everyone has their own way to use their systems, in example

your friend has fewer programs and background services, allowing GTA V to use the whole systems to gain performances

you have a bit lot of programs and background services, the whole systems is used by the programs and background services

considering GTA V is a very CPU hungry game, then the stutter happened.

such condition like this, no way you have a same PC with same systems,

 

it's just my opinion though, :)
