Getting FPS drops/machine lag in BF V - what part to get?
« on: December 11, 2018, 02:04:47 PM »
Whilst playing BF V, I'm noticing frequent machine lag & FPS drops. Now, my rig is old. It's over 5 years old at this point, but wondering what part if I upgrade for xmas would give me the most benefit?

OS Windows 10 Pro 64-bit
CPU   Intel Core i5 4670K @ 3.40GHz
RAM   32.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 798MHz (11-11-11-28) (PC3-12800 800MHz)
Mobo ASRock Z97 Anniversary
Graphics 2047MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 760 (MSI)
Storage 250GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO (windows) & 500GB Samsung SSD 850 EVO (games)
Audio Creative X-Fi Audio Processor (WDM)

Other RAM that I could use is 8GB PC3-10700 CL9 (CMY8GX3M2A1600C9), but unsure if the lower latency would matter much?

/edit: seems if I set the BFV.exe process CPU usage to "high", I get no stutter.

Shall probably get a i7-4790 for 120 for a bit of a boost for now.

Also, shall upgrade the GFX card. Which would be better? Sapphire Pulse Radeon RX 580 8G or MSI AMD RX 580 ARMOR 8G OC 8 GB? Leaning towards the MSI, for the factory OC.
