Games Causing New PC to Run Slowly

Even on a new PC, you may notice that your games are causing it to run slowly. This can be due to many issues related to the hardware of your system.

This FAQ will walk you through the various solutions that exist for you to ramp up your PC's performance.

Stop Games from Slowing Down Computer

First, install the latest drivers for your motherboard and graphics card. When running your game, disable any programs running in the background (e.g. anti-virus scanners). You should also check for overheating.

If none of these have solved your problem, you should make sure that your computer meets the minimum requirements for running the game. If the specs are too high for your PC, you may try to reduce texture details, shadows, and graphics in the game's settings.

If your issue persists, you may consider adding more RAM to your PC to increase its processing abilities.
