Why is my frame rate so low???

  lukehatch100 20:41 09 Apr 2017

I've had my gaming PC for a few months now. When I first tried it the frame rate was great, constant 60 (pretty much what I expected) with good graphics too. But now when I play I can never seem to get above 20 fps, and graphics are never as good as they have been. I have recently switched from WiFi to Etherley connection, and while this helps me find good servers my frame rate is still really low. I want to know what the problem is and how I can get my PC to run like it's supposed to? Thanks

Open task manager, click on the performance tab, click the blue text ' open resource monitor' at the bottom in blue text. Take your time and check what's using your resources. CPU, Disk, Network and Ram (memory). Should give a clue as to what is going on. If you use torrents for free games then your PC might be a Botnet.
