    Hi so i play this game called Rust, It's an alpha game so it runs like **** for most people even with high end pc's. I turn the graphics down almost all the way and it will run fine for me besides the normal lag you get. I stopped playing for about a month and just started yesterday and i noticed that i'd get huge lag spikes and my fps will go from 70+ down to 5 or lower so the game is unplayable. I also noticed that it's using all of my memory which shouldn't be happening. 8bg ram is min for the game but i have friends with shittier computers than me with 8gb ram without experiencing the problem so if someone could help me troubleshoot this it'd help a lot.

    Also pretty much any program can make my disk usage go up to 100%

    The AMD processor and AMD graphic card in your computer use a combined total of 400W of power.
    When you factor in the power needs of the other hardware and the demands of gaming, a quality power supply with sufficient wattage is needed.
    What's the brand name and model number and wattage of the power supply in yours?

    That ASUS motherboard supports up to 32 GB(8 GB X 4) of DDR3 RAM.
    Since your computer is used for gaming, add another 8 GB and run it with 16 GB.

    We don't know how you use and maintain your computer and what's installed and running in it, so that can have a negative effect on speed and performance.

    The hardware in your computer and how you use it recommends a power supply with more than 500W.

    You're pushing that 500W power supply to the max, so it's my guess that's part of your problem.
