Hello, I have recently purchased a used gaming PC specs: Intel i7 2600 CPU, Nvidia Geforce GTX 1060 6GB GPU, Corsair CX 450M power supply, and a dual channel 2 x 2 GB of ram (which I have ordered a 8GB kit coming soon) 1 TB WD harddrive, no SSD, and Windows 10 Pro Operating system. I'm thinking it might be due to the lack of ram but am not sure as I'm new to PC Gaming. I've also tried changing the settings in fortnite to low and it doesn't seem to change. I get good graphics and high FPS but it keeps lagging. I don't believe this is internet related either because I can loads YouTube videos fine and play this game on Xbox One with no Problem. Let me know any suggestions or solutions to this problem it would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

That is a seriously old Processor. Well 6 years old anyway, it's going to have difficulties with some modern Games. 8GB of RAM should be good but, again, the latest RAM is unlikely to work with it. You'll have to be careful what you buy
