My computer wont run games smoothly anymore ?

Hey so i picked up The Witcher 3 two days ago and everything was fine and i had no problems with the game until now.
When i launch the game its extremely laggy i dont know what the problem is i dont have anything else open whilst playing and i have also done som test to check for overheating but my cpus reaches an average 55c and max 62c.
This also happens with some other games.
what could be the issue here.
System Specs.

Intel Core i7-3770 CPU @ 3.40Ghz (8 CPUs)
16 gb Ram
Nvidia GeForce GTX 650 Ti.

  1. Uhh, GPU usage?

    Have you tried turning down the settings in W3, are you sure youre settings didnt get reset?
    They released a patch for it today that well, should have made some improvements, though sometimes patches break things as well.

    i have tried turning down everything to low and put the game in window mode but still its very laggy and completely unplayable.
  3. Might want to try sending in a ticket to CDProjectred, letting them know the broke something.
    It's unlikely your CPU is the problem, and more likely your GPU, are you sure your GPU temps are fine?

  5. HWinfo is pretty good, http://www.hwinfo.com/
    You can pair it with MSI afterburner/rivatuner (same thing) to get more than just FPS results ingame.

    Ok so i did some tests and my GPU Temprature is at 42c and the GPU Load is at 97-99% most of the time . could this be the issue and if so any suggestions on how i can fix this.

    Well, your GPU is fairly on the weak side, for witcher 3 at least.
    You may try uninstalling and reinstalling witcher 3 though, since you were running it okay at first.
