Hi,
Which game ?
So we may at least see it's recommended and minimum hardware requirements.

It would be nice if you simply uploaded the images here with the paper clip icon in the reply editor instead of hyperlinks.

You can also copy and paste text file content here select all ...

https://infestationworld.com/downloads. The recommend specs on is the download link. I modified the image but the text file has too many characters and there's a limit as to how much I can include in my posts. Is there another way for me to do it?

Thanks for the help

Hi,
Looks like you're well above recommended spec's or at least your ram is right on spec's

What problems do you have running the game ?
Like a lot of performance issue see what's going on using resource monitor and see if svchost is running a muck

I'm just trying to increase my FPS and make it so it doesn't lag that bad when I try recording with NVDIA shadow play.

Hi,
As far as I can tell you're using a 2gb gpu and 8gbs of ram so those would be what I would guess would help the most
I would guess the gpu is the oldest 4gbs is the new standard

It's either that or stop recording.

This little tutorial by Brink is very helpful for Screen Shots.

This will allow me and others to see the Screen Shots properly and who knows we might be able to help.

This is just a request.

Hi,
I'm sure you have a pci-e slot seeing you have a GTX 760
The power supply recommended is 500w pretty good seeing a GTX 980 recommends a 600w I believe
It also need a 8 pin power connection from the psu,
So unless you have a very small computer case ? it should

You still have a MSI Z87-G45 Gaming board ?
