Normal performance or is something wrong?

My Rig:

ASUS Z97 Motherboard
gtx 970 4gb superclocked
i5-4690k @ 3.50GHz
8 RAM
Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO
1000w PSU
Playing at 1080p
GTA 5 settings:
Texture Qaulity - Very High
Shader Quality - Very High
Shadows - Normal
Reflection - Normal
FXAA - On
MSAA - Off
Vsync - Off
Water - Very High
Particles - Very High
Grass - High
Depth of Field - On
I know there's a few more setting, but this is the jist of it.
So I ran the benchmark and was getting 30 - 35 fps, and when playing the game the mouse lag is horrendous, it's like half a second behind.
This is when my GPU is not overclocked, when I DO overclock the GPU clock by +100Mhz, it will run at 60 fps barely and the mouse lag is improved, but I will still get frame drops all over the place and occasionally crash.
Now is this what is expected from a PC with these specs at these settings. Maybe I am being too over confident with my rig, but I figured I would be able to get better performance than this.

Just by any chance, have you tried choosing your settings with GeForce Experience?

 

Two notches down from 'Optimal' should give you very good fps while maintaining good visual quality.

Not normal lol, i have almost identical specs except maybe my cooler, which is not as good as yours, an i5-4690, a GTX 760, I run about the same settings as you, except textures at high, i get stable 55-60fps.

That is definitely not normal. There's something wrong with your PC for sure.

Yes, I've done that. I turned off all the advanced graphics when I optimized and a few graphics settings, but it's still the same.

 

I feel like something happened because when I first built my pc back in October, I was able to run games like Alien Isolation and Bioshock Infinite at max settings with great performance.

Try turning DOF off, not that I suspect it, but anyway..

 

At least, go to Nvidia Control Panel. Make sure triple buffering is disabled, and consider creating a specific profile for GTAV.exe in there aswell. There's a lot on how to set the best settings on the net.

 

Also, if you believe that your settings are already optimal, you should get some softwares to monitor your system temps and CPU utilization when in-game, which will help reveal if it's a hardware issue.

 

And what make is your PSU?

So, I just brought the settings down to the bare minimum and all though I can get a good 70-80 fps, the game still stutters and doing anything will cause the game to drop frames. And just for the record this problem is not specific for GTA 5, I've had problems with the others games I have, but GTA 5 is what really took the cake.

 

PSU is Rosewill Capstone

 

What software do you recommend for temps and CPU utilization? I'm gonna try that now so I can see if my GPU is the problem or something else.

No normal whats so ever. Try pressing Alt and Tab at the same time then go back in to the game. Your real FPS will show up.

As far as I know, Rosewill produces decent hardware and PSUs.. Let's leave it there

 

For monitoring software, I use Core Temp and the AI Suite that comes with ASUS motherboards, I only install the USB charger thing and the sensor/monitor. I use a Windows gadget that utilizes Core Temp to show me the temperatures of the cores in CPU on the desktop.

 

For GPU I use MSI Afterburner - not to do overclock, but it has a lot of information in there which I find very usefull when troubleshooting. It shows stats about your GPU (of course) temp., power draw, VRAM usage and more, + info about the CPU, system RAM and page file usage aswell.

 

You shouldn't need to overclock your hardware. When the game is crashing or performing very badly, go to Afterburner and open up the monitoring suite and give a look on the CPU and GPU usage charts - is one of these hitting 100%?

 

Do you get any information upon crashing?

 

Maybe Water Dragon's suggestion works for you.
