if you have an SSD drive install it onto that one (helped me up from about 15-20 fps to 30-40 fps)

 

A ssd will NOT give you a fps boost!

umm... what?

you need to download steam to your ssd drive and then download squad onto it, and then open yo ssd drive steam and play squad from there.

Or you can just add the ssd and then point steam to another library location and then install Squad to the ssd.

Have you tried updating your system. Hold the windows key and press I at the same time. Then pick update and security and update from there. Post back if this still doesn't work and I will help you through other ways to fix your system.

Your RAM: do you have 2x4GB cards (identical cards) or 1x8GB (or maybe 4x2GB)?

 

Next thing: have you inserted the graphics card into the right PCI-E (x16) slot?

 

Probably the intel hd graphics is activated? The one in the cpu. Check it in BIOS (onboard graphics or something like that).

RAM: you need at least 2 identical RAM cards to get the best out of your system - read here about it: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Multi-channel_memory_architecture

 

GPU: open the "Device Manager" and check under "Display adapters" what is listed there. Make a screenshot and post it here.

No, not the RAM only - but it's also a reason why you're score is lower. But if you buy a GTX 980ti and a i5 6600k, you should not save money by buying only 1 RAM card.

Post the screenshot of your device manager -> display adapters and maybe we can quickly find out what your problem is.

im building off of my old build . my old build was hardly mid range . had a $100 amd cpu xD .  im re using my ram and case . thats pretty much it . new board , card, and power supply , and cpu . i dont make much  money so it took me a very long time to get where i am now . been building this sense last November .  new ram will be the next thing i buy for sure but my gfs bday is coming up so gonna need to wait a few paydays lol .   

 

 

my next plan that i was planning on doing today is just cleaning everthing! like wiping my hard drive and reinstalling windows . clean slate you know ? cuz this pc has been through alot . ill save my porn and other things i dont wanna lose but just gonna wipe it . do you think that would help at all ?   actually windows is telling me in my bottom right corner to activate windows . idk if its limiting my hardware or what but this is new
