Hey guys, I've had my computer since about July now and it has been working great! I just want to see if I can do a little bit more with it, and maybe learn how to tweak/optimize some things on it. Lately I've been playing BF4/LOL/and some other games where I can easily get over 100 fps on LoL which doesn't matter, and over 50-60 fps on BF4. The main problem is DayZ/Arma2. I know that DayZ is very poorly optimized and I've already looked into/heard from a lot of people about it. The reason I am worried about my performance is this: I get really great fps on other games, and then I get 20-35 fps on DayZ while my friends with poorer computers(even some have laptops) can get 15-25 which is almost the same as mine. I think mine can do better, I just don't know how to go about doing that.
Processor: AMD FX-8150 Eight-Core Processor
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7850 2GB
Hard Drive: 500GB SATA II 7200RPM
Memory: 8GB DDR3 1333
If any of you have any optimizations I can do through the AMD Catalyst Control Center/Overdrive or anything else such as RAMDISK which I have looked into, but am not too sure how to use that would be awesome. I have no idea how to overclock safely/optimize my computer so it can perform at its best.
Any help is appreciated, thanks.
