LMAO WTFMATE?

I've got a HTPC I've Frankensteined from my hand-me-down parts I had laying around:

MSI Gaming GTX 970
G3420 (3433 passmark http://www.cpubenchmark.net/cpu.p...40+3.20GHz)
8gb 1600mhz ram
SSD
Fresh install of Win8.1 with all latest drivers

When I run the in game benchmark it shows 60-110+ FPS but it is like a slideshow.

Vsync is off, all settings are off or normal, resolution set to 800x600. Tried DX10 thru 11.

I know the CPU is a bottleneck (usually running 75-100% using MSI Rivatuner overlay), but I would think at a peon 800x600 rez I would at least get a smooth looking mine craft like graphics... nope, it's still a stutter / chop fest Frown

What gives? Any other settings I've missed?

Did you try a higher resolution? I use an X4 860K (5633 passmark) and a GTX 960 and I get a very nice picture and high frame rate at 1080p. Sure it is a faster processor, but it doesn't make that much of a difference.

There is an aspect of the Nvidia GeForce Experience drivers that will automatically configure and optimize your settings on a per-game basis, might be worth a try? - http://www.geforce.com/geforce-experience
