GTA 5 Stuttering for a few seconds!

Question

ArcturusNuva

Hi guys,

 

Around a month or two ago I got some hardcore lag spikes while playing GTA, but

I didn't really act on it until now. Basically Whenever I start GTA, I spawn in Franklin's

House(All missions complete), When I move forward or move my mouse sometimes

The game freezes for like 2 seconds then continues fine with like 60 fps. Then about

A minute in to the game when I go outside, it starts to freeze every 4-5 seconds, then

Go down to like 30-20 FPS. I will also mention that the sound also stutters during these

Spikes

 

My graphics card is an

NVIDIA GTX 760

 

My processor is an

Intel i5 Dual Processor

 

Additionally

I cleaned out my PC, and I think i noticed a few differences for the better, but before that

I also did a few others things like change my graphics down(because that always helps right?)

So I'm not sure if that had an impact. Also nothing happened before this that would contribute

To the issues, no loud pop, no computer screaming, nothing like that. And when I tried Dirty Bomb,

Another Steam game something similar happens, but a lot worse, like I can't even move in game,

Yet CS:GO, Insurgency, Minecraft(Yes I did try it) work absolutely fine. So before this I was able to

Run the game perfectly, but now I reinstall the game, start vanilla and this happens. Very odd.

 

Thanks for your time, thanks in advance for any help! 

 

Additionally, here's a video demonstrating my issue

-make sure you have everything on the lowest settings so that it isn't a problem with that

-check you have the latest graphics drivers installed

-try changing between full screen and windowed mode

-if you have a steam version, verify your game cache

I tried setting my game on Safe Mode, and then turning all the settings to the absolute lowest, but nothing happened.

I'll also mention that before the game did these spikes(about 2 months ago), I was able to play with mostly all my 

Effects set to High. Just before I reset my Windows 10 I checked for the latest graphic drivers, installed the new ones,

But still no difference. Fullscreen mode and Windowed Mode don't make a difference either. Finally, I reinstalled my

Game and verified my game cache multiple times to have no avail.

try using GpuTweek "gaming booster" or similar program to stop all windows services running in the background, before starting the game and see if it helps.

Just tried that on multiple different games(including GTA 5) with no avail. Thanks for suggesting it though!
