Hello, I'm new here, and I'd really like some help. I'm at my wit's end on this. I have a pc with a i7 4770 and a Gtx1060. My games stutter a lot especially fortnite and no matter what i tweak, I can't get it to stop. I would appreciate any help. I've tried many things. Making sure everything was updated, turning off power throttling and everything.

yes I did that and it showed it may be related to bottlenecking issues. I'm actually shocked.

If the computer is a desktop can you post the brand and model name or number of the power supply (PSU).

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here, this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.

To publish a Speccy profile to the Web:

In Speccy, click File, and then click Publish Snapshot.

In the Publish Snapshot dialog box, click Yes to enable Speccy to proceed.

Speccy publishes the profile and displays a second Publish Snapshot. You can open the URL in your default browser, copy it to the clipboard, or close the dialog box.

Can I ask that you do not quote every reply as I have to read the full post to make sure nothing gets missed,, thanks.

Not sure how you missed providing this most important of information :unsure:

Edit to add: After checking Speccy we can see that your computer is the HP brand, this should have been mentioned in your OP as it explains why you are having such issues.

First of all, HP computers have a locked BIOS so what you see is what you get and you cannot improve the performance anymore than what the computer originally shipped with, second point is that brand names such as HP and Dell etc use junk PSUs to help keep build costs down, this means one of two things, if the GTX 1060 was factory fitted it will have been throttled back to reduce the power demand or if the GTX 1060 was added afterwards the factory fitted PSU will be inadequate

Polite reminder, please do not quote posts.

Are you sure that is the brand name and not Rosewill.

Did you see the edit to my reply #8.

Oh okay, I see. I’m still a bit new to this, so I was pressing the wrong button to reply. And yes the PSU is a rosewill not the other I said. Also psu was added later on. Again, I do apologize about the quoting of the post.

No problem. its just that we have enough reading to do as it is.

One last question for you.

Can you confirm that the 3GB Zotac GTX 1060 was added after the computer had left the factory.

I totally understand, there’s a lot of people that need to be helped. Also I had to check with the seller I bought the pc from. Yes it was added as well. The original graphics card is the intel hd graphics 4600

Roosevelt 400w PSU 80+ bronze

Two things to mention, Rosewill PSUs are on the avoid list and they do not make a 400W Bronze efficiency rated PSU, they do make a white which are not intended for use when there is an add on GPU present, that PSU was made back in 2010 and could only produce 360W so would not be enough for a GTX 1060, see here

Not really sure that it is worth it being honest, your CPU and RAM being locked at the speed that they are means that your GPU performance is going to be restricted in any event.

Going offline now as I have an early start, will check back tomorrow after work.

We really don`t like giving people bad news but it is better to be up front, the computer cannot be upgraded and you are better to save up and get yourself something that can be.

The one and only test that I can suggest is to see if you are able to borrow a better quality PSU to swap in for testing, any good brand 400W Bronze or above efficiency rated PSU will do, let us know if this is possible and we will provide the info for you to test your system while there is an appropriate PSU powering the system, if that works out you know that it is worth purchasing a new PSU and likewise if it does not work out you know that it is time to move on.

Borrowing a better PSU if you can would at least give you peace of mind in knowing that you had done all the checks that you could, we advise trying to borrow one first as we wouldn't like you to go ahead and purchase an appropriate PSU only to find that the performance was the same.

You are welcome btw :)
