I was wondering if anyone would be able to help me with this issue I’ve had for a very long time.

I’ll just explain it now;

I get an average 45(fps) on low settings on counter-strike: global offensive,

Here are my specifications: AMD R9 270X XFX (@ Stock) AMD FX 8310 (@ 4.0GHz) Western Digital 1TB HDD (@7200 RPM) PNY Anarchy X 16GB DDR3 (@1866MHz) (2x8GB) Asrock 980DE3/U3S3 HYPER 212 EVO SenTey Xplus power 725W (XPP725-HS)

My friend has similar things to mine he wouldn’t give me specifics, His specifications: AMD R9 290 (@ Stock) AMD FX 8320 (@ Stock) 1TB HDD (@7200 RPM) Corsair Vengeance 16GB (@1866MHz) 750W PSU (that’s all he gave me)

And he gets an average 350(fps) on high settings on counter-strike: global offensive. (I crash if I go to high)

And we’re both running on Windows 10

Seems really odd to me, ‘cause his setup only cost like 100$ more than mine (not exact).

It just kinda feels like I’m being ripped off, I’ve had this pc for a while now. Like a year.

CS:GO Launch Properties: -tickrate 128 -novid -nod3d9ex -threads 4 -high-nojoy CS:GO Specific Video Settings: click here = screenshot

If anyone is able to help that’d be very appreciated, cheers.

(And this is not just subject to csgo, it also happens in various other games)
