    (Im not a native english speaker so dont look at my grammar too much thx xD)
    Hello,
    After researching for many hours on the web i came to the conclusion: I have no idea what the problem is and no one can help me.
    Im not a computer expert, but ill try to post my specs here:
    graphics card : GeForce GTX 970
    Prozessor : Intel Core i5-4590CPU @3.30GHz
    Ram : I think 8GB ddr3 (is it called that way ?^^)
    from the rest i got no idea, buuuut, i bought this pc as a whole at a pc shop.
    The guys said, that the PC is good and ill be able to play a lot of games in high-medium graphic settings.
    The Problem as u may already be thinking is that its not as it should be.
    And before you say: check youre drivers , or do you have the right cable plugged in?- YES i have :).
    Everything should be working fine (no overheating as well) , but all my games are even lagging, when i turn everything on low or off. I have no idea what to do and im really frustrated.
    Is some component too bad , do i have a programm that blocks everyhintg, am i retarded?- idk but i hope you can really help me :)
    Im open for any suggestions, but explain everyhintg really good im not a computer expert after all ;).
    The games are : BO3 , Black Desert online, Overwatch, LeagueofLegends, and a few more.

    Dears Alex

    What speed is your network? Is it wireless or wired?
    Are there any background programs running? Slow anti-virus etc?

    Hum, difficult to see what else to check.
    Are the games, you play all multi-player or, single-player or a mixture. Do they all run slow, or just a few?
    If multi-player, then it could be the server's fault rather than your pc...

    Hm singleplayer games run very smooth, but openworld games start to get a little big laggy , and when it gets to open world online, i can put my pc in the trash can.
    I read that it could be the prozessor, because open world games need to render much stuff at the same time.
    I hope this info helps a lil more xD,
    Thx for your help peter :) (was a littel busy last days)

    I personally, would add more RAM as that would give a more noticable speed increase, then I would look at a better graphics card, I tend to go for mid-range/priced cards at between £80-£120 quid (US $100-$160). If thinking a new CPU, then its worth replacing the PC, as a new CPU tends to mean a new motherboard as well...
