  • This page helped me a lot, thank you so much. Now, can anyone address the best way to use a i7 8700k with 64gb of ram with a 2080 rtx with 8 gb improve fps on a 70" 4k tv. I really love graphics and I have turned a lot of them down, but for some reason, my fps is in the low 30 to 20 sometimes 13 on some games and it runs like crap. My tv is a Roku 70" 4k with 60 hz. I know it's not the best, but what can i really get out of it as far as it running smoother even if i can't get 60fps but at least get 45fps.

  • Thanks, added 30fps going through most of these steps. getting a stable 60 on very high in 4k now. Great article.
