For the past year, I have been struggling with performance issues running my favorite game Apex Legends. While it is a hardware-intensive game, and my hardware certainly isn't the newest, according to the internet, my performance should be better than it is.

The issue: My FPS, particularly when turning my view around in-game, drops dramatically to <10fps. But here is where it gets weird. Apex doesn't think it's losing frames. The in-game performance tracker stays at around 60 fps, more than I can see with my eyes. I have dropped my graphics as low as they go, a shame but something I am willing to enjoy the gameplay, and it made no difference on my experience. HOWEVER, it did increase my in-game performance display to state I was seeing roughly 120fps.

This is where I am stuck. My computer can run Apex at low visual settings at 120fps. I would be beyond thrilled for a consistent 60. And yet I can only see 5-30.
I work hard and want to be able to come home to my favorite videogame without frustration. I would greatly appreciate any advice or help. Thank you for your time.

Took a number of posts to get to this, but IMO your PSU isn't sufficient for real gaming. I prefer 750+Gold of a reliable brand.
