    Hello! I just finished my build! I slapped Steam and CSGO on there and I am getting worse performance than most people on Youtube with the same specs. I am getting 50-60 FPS on lowest settings.

    This guy gets 100-120 FPS on high settings. He also has the same specs.



    Here is my build.

    How can I fix this? What is the possible problem?

    Thanks!

    Are your drivers up to date and what is your OS?

    Tried to download the drivers, it said mine was unsupported hardware.

    What is the link to the drivers anyway? I want to make sure I went to the right website.

    I have Windows 10 Pro.

    I have the same ghz as him (3.7).

    I also have my graphics card over-clocked. The BIOS switch on the card is to the right.

    i saw your post about the drivers. thats why you are getting terrible FPS. follow the link that the other person provided and you should be good to go. also, those fancy gpu boost switches, love em!.

    You are sure that would be better for my PC performance-wise? Can I upgrade to Windows 10 easily in the future?

    win7 is main choice for gamers, lots of support, easy upgrading, but a desktop ui that some do not prefer.

    I didn't upgrade from Windows 7, though. How do I go to Windows 7?
