    I just purchased an iBUYPOWER Gaming PC, Model TRACE940 from my local bestbuy. I got it all set up, installed geforce experience as well as the drivers associated with my graphics card (GTX 1060). The first game I initially installed and played was of course fortnite, which ran smoothly and without any problems (Over 150 FPS). Fortnite is of course not a graphic intensive game, so I wanted to see how well my computer could run games with more intense graphics, so I installed warframe. After launching it up, the game was very laggy, and the unplayable. I am very frustrated and don't know quite what to do. I understand buying prebuilt computer is a nono, and building them yourself is the way to go, however, a friend of mine who works their got me a good deal on this computer, and I didn't want to go through the trouble of having to locate parts to build my own. Any help would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!

    Specs:

    i7 8700 processor
    16gb Memory
    1Tb Hardrive
    GTX 1060 Graphics card
    120gb SSD

    You should be killing it in that game since it's an old game that doesn't require much.

    • OS: Windows XP SP 3 or higher
    • Processor: Intel Core 2 Duo e6400 or AMD Athlon x64 4000+ (~2.2Ghz dual core CPU)
    • Memory: 2 GB RAM
    • Graphics: Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT or ATI Radeon HD 3600
    • DirectX: 9.0c
    • Hard Drive: 5 GB free HD space

    Is it possible that my its throttling due to lack of cooling? This is really odd, and honestly frustrating.

    Are you plugged into the actual 1060 or the onboard video card built into the motherboard?

    My friend had similar situations, but he has no idea what soft and drivers are.
    It's possible that this is a matter of cooling - but you can check what temperature your computer has.
    Did you make sure that you also have good software after a good hardware?
    Games such as Wolcen require a special approach and that people who play Wolcen could create memes and funny picture stories, and maybe even popular science channels and channels about computer games and games on Ps4. Mobile games are currently a very important market sector, most of which were underestimated by players. That's why most people try to log in the first time they meet with Wolcen. Buy mystic items or some legendary armor. The most interesting things to Wolcen can be found in a world where humanity exists only in a hypothetical version. The presence of man in virtual reality and game trading is an interesting combination that can help us solve most of the curiosities and get all the necessary information. Therefore, buying Wolcen items is the responsibility of every liberal, and therefore we must buy items in Wolcen https://odealo.com/games/wolcen/marketplace

    I think you should return the computer, iBUYPOWER brand? Goodness, if getting a prebuilt at least go with ASUS or ACER

    A 1060 and an i7 is by no means a bad PC.

    IBUYPOWER is what I meant. He should have gone asus or acer if he really wanted to go prebuilt like one said earlier in this thread.

    Oh yes Asus all the way!

    But acer is also better than some other brands.
