New GTX 1050ti but no frames improvement

Hi All,

So I've seen some similar threads but nothing really that helpful so thought I'd ask a Q!
The situation is that I had an asus and RX 250x with 1gb of ddr5. When I built my pc i was on a bit of a budget but I wanted to improve my graphics card so last week I bought a GTX 1050ti 4gb. I loaded up Cs go after installing the new graphics card but for some reason there's been no change in fps. I checked the settings and they're still all on low (as when I had the old graphics card) and my fps is still sitting at 120. I know 120fps is far from unplayable but I still expected to see a large improvement in fps...there's been none.

My build:

Mobo - Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H
RAM - HyperX FURY 8 GB Memory
CPU - AMD Athlon X4 860K Quad-Core 3.7GH
GPU - Gigabyte GTX 1050 ti 4gb
PSU - EVGA 500w

If someone could help it'd be really appreciated! Thanks in advance!

    Cs go is very cpu single core performance dependent, its not very gpu heavy. Your cpu has fairly weak cpu single core performance, my guess is your cpu was limiting your fps on your old gpu so changing tge gpu has not helped.

  2. Looking at your system specs, I assume you have a 60hz refresh rate monitor, in which case more FPS from what you currently get won't make a difference. There is no problem.

    By 'sitting' at 120FPS, do you mean as an average, or as if it doesnt go lower or higher than 120FPS. There is either a CPU limitation or software limitation (possible FPS cap).

    An upgrade of GPU doesn't have to be a performance boost. It could just mean better graphics settings. So you could keep the same framerate while increase your graphical settings.

  3. Cheers for the answer guys!

    @sizzling while that may be the case as far as I'm aware csgo has never been the kind of game that required top of the line specs. My cpu isn't the best ever but it's certainly not terrible so should be able to handle CS comfortably. Additionally when running csgo my CPU usage isn't specifically high. Is there a way of making csgo use multiple cores as opposed to a single.core like you mentioned?

  4. @rexper yeah I've got a 60hz and while the game may not get smoother i wanted to play at higher graphics settings Hence the new gpu. And my fps is constantly flickering up and down depending where on the map I go (which is normal) but it tends to be never go above 120 and really flickers around there.... dropping to 80 in some places

  5. Total cpu usage doesn't mean much, you have to monitor each core. If any core is sitting near 100% then its highly likely that is your limiting factor. As for getting the game to use more cores, usually the answer is no as the has to be designed to use more cores/threads however I would Google it encase some has found a,way of improving it but I don't know of one.
