I've never really reached out for help before but I've been having some performance issues on some newer games. I'm not sure if it's an issue with hardware or if I just need to find that sweet spot for the settings. I currently have an FX 8320, Sapphire R9 290x OC 4gb, 8gb Ram DDR3, and the ASROCK 970 Pro3 R2.0. I've noticed it in Battlefield 3 and 4, as well as some slow spots in Dragon Age Inquisition and Witcher 3 is near unplayable. I tend to run things on high but only at 1080p settings so I'm not really trying to push it to the extreme. Witcher 3 I tend to leave at medium knowing how those games are designed. I'm just wondering if anyone on here has some tips I can do to try and find out what is causing the issues and hopefully fix them. I really don't want to go and buy a whole new build because I will probably switch to Nvidia/Intel since my buddy never has issues like this. I just know I can get more out of my system with these specs because I see the videos all the time online of people running them without a hitch. Anyway any help would be greatly appreciated.
