  1. im aware my CPU can bottleneck Dota 2 but its still very low
    i've upgraded my GPU today though
  2. Is the monitor connected through the motherboard or through the graphics card itself? It should be connected through the graphics card in order to utilize the graphics card's power.

    the monitor is connected through motherboard w HDMI , isnt it the same thing ? what cable do i need to connect it through graphic card
  4. Here's a page with a gallery of 1050 video cards:

    https://www.nvidia.com/en-us/geforce/products/10series/geforce-gtx-1050/

    Those cards would plug into a slot on your motherboard, and that backplate on their left side would be visible on the back of your case. That's where you would plug your monitor in. The type of cable depends, but most would have HDMI, Displayport, or DVI.

    on the backplate thats visible on the back in my case im using HMDI port from GPU to Monitor , is this the correct method wich means connecting GPU through monitor via HMDI cable ?
  6. Can't really say without seeing it. If this page is your motherboard:

    http://www.foxconnchannel.com/ProductDetail.aspx?T=motherboard&U=en-us0000562#

    You can click on the thumbnails to see the large version at left. The motherboard has its built-in HDMI connector over on the left hand side between a DVI and VGA connector on the left and a pair of USB 2.0 connectors on the right. The 1050's ports should be over on the right hand side past the audio ports.
  7. What video driver set do you have installed?

    yes on the right side past the audio ports on the upper left side and there are DP DVI and HMDI ports - mine is connected to HMDI obviously through GPU in the back
  10. Can you open up Task Manager "control-shift-escape" and look at the Performance tab? It should graphs for CPU and Memory usage. If your CPU usage is more than say, 10%, click on the Processes tab and list the top 3 items, and their numbers in the CPU column.

    i just posted as a picture take a look http://imgur.com/QaUvIHf , btw CPU usage here shows as 3% but goes up and down
  12. Everything looks ok there. When you're running Dota, can you check your CPU and GPU usage %?
  13. Don't use the task manager as it shows only instant load,use msi afterburner (it works with any GPU), and use the OSD options to monitor cpu and gpu load during gameplay.

    CPU reaches 100% , GPU depends tho - ive noticed something else - doesnt matter whether i run it on all high or low settings i get the same fps or like 5 fps more in low settings -i get 55-70 on non action but when on heavy action fights it drops around 30 ish and is unplayable :)

    It looks like your CPU is maxing out, which prevents the GPU from running full speed. Most graphics settings affect the GPU load far more than the CPU load. In fact some low settings can increase CPU load by causing the CPU to take over some graphics calculations. Unless your CPU isn't running at full speed there isn't much you can do about it. You can download cpu z to double check your processor. An i3 2120 should be running at 3.3 GHz (3300 MHz).

    It could also be the case that Dota 2 is poorly optimized right now. They just released a new version and a lot of people are complaining that it's running slow. Even on very fast systems that have no trouble with much more demanding games. You can check around their forums to see which settings improved fps the most.
