Hi guys,

 

 I'm kinda of a noob when it comes to computers and required specs to run games.Can anyone give me tips on getting higher FPS for Medium to High settings?    At the moment i can only reach to 35-45 fps on medium settings =(  

 

My current PC specs below.

Intel Core i5-4690k 3.5 GHz 6MD

Memory: 8GB DDR3/1866Mhz

Video: Nvidia GeForce GTX 750 1GB Gddr5

Motherboard: ASUS Z97-P ATX 

 

Suggestions would be appreciated.

Video card needs an update, something more recent with more memory will help a lot. The 750 is a rather low end level card.

Get a good cooler to overclock that CPU and upgrade the video card to at least a 970.

Keep textures high and settings at medium/high if you were to go with a 970.

Something I'm confused about, perhaps someone can enlighten me.

afaik, the 970 outperforms the R9290 in most benchmarks and draws less power. Though it seems to perform worse in BDO?

I'm running a single R9290 and all settings max and I get 45-60fps @1920x1200.

As people said above

Get a 970. You won't be dissapointed.

On top of that I'd suggest getting another 8GB of RAM. This year many games show minimum requirements to have 4-6GB of RAM. So 8 is just at the edge nowadays even in gaming. Other than this you have a pretty decent setup. Also Don't worry about power supply. 9xx series have very low power consumption. 600-700W is enough.

I have the same CPU but a R9 270 GPU. I get around 30-40 FPS on high textures and medium graphics. At this point the only thing I can do to get better frames at a higher settings is to upgrade my gpu, which is what you will have to do as well. Theirs nothing you can do settings wise to get more FPS unless you lowered the settings, so are you willing to upgrade?
