Hi, I Have a pc with the following specs: GTX 960 4GB Graphics Card, i5 4460 Processer, z79x gaming 3 Motherboard, 16GB 2400MHz Corsair Vengance Pro RAM (Memory), 64gb SSD Sandisk Ultra Plus (Running Windows), 2TB 7200RPM Toshiba Hard Drive, 600 Watt Power Supply, I have also installed a hyper 212 EVO CPU fan and thermal paste. Here's my problem; i can run Minecraft,Rocket League,Star Wars Battlefront (2015 Version) & CS:GO at high settings. But i cannot run Black Ops 3, Just Cause 3 & Watch Dogs at high settings.My PC cost me over £660 and i have done alot of research and people with the same specs run all these games, i can't run ,at 70 FPS. I have tried optimising my games with the GeFORCE experience program,ive got the ram working at full speed,ive got power saving mode off on windows and i dont know what to do. Please Help Me!!

Why not try 60fps?

Sorry, My Problem is achieving 60 fps/above. I would go 60 if i could!

I can only think your SSD is near full even though your games are installed on the Tosh. 64 GB SSDs are past their sell time date. How much space left on it? You might have more programs on it than others.

The usual rule with SSDs are the bigger the drive the faster they are and more free space helps. Trim manually once a week and don't rely on Windows.

It could be your bottleneck unless there's enough free space on it.

Sorry Jaffa, it was your mention of 70fps that threw me!

Its Okay Eddie, And Dave, there is 26.4gb of memory left on the ssd (which i bought as the speeds were fast at 530 MB/s) But i am using 24gb as virtual memory. Any other suggestions?

Have you looked at your Monitor's settings

Yeah but other games are running fine.

Try running 'can you run it' (link below) and select the appropriate games which are giving you problems from the drop down menu. Although it seems you can actually 'run' the games (Black Ops 3, Just Cause 3 & Watch Dogs), something is affecting frame rates, from what you say. The above might be able to tell you what the problem might be.

It Says That Watch dogs and black ops 3 should work fine though...

Update:Black ops 3 is working fine on medium settings, however watch dogs is shockingly unplayable on low settings.
