Description

a cheap build and a nice gaming pc a few year ago but in need of upgrading now, hanging in with OC's as far as I dare push them.

I think I need a new motherboard as the power rating on mine isn't good for the 8 core at OC, also a new or a second GPU is required, though with this set up Im still able to run GTA Online at 60fps with the odd drop to 56fps at high-very high.. but ultra is where we all want to be.

without the cpu oc gta5 runs 60fps but has the occasional drop to 20fps with delayed input responses for a few secs generally while driving. I don't know why this is. with the oc its fine.
