it could be multiple things. What are the GPU temps?
Yes I didn't think it would be. How may I check the temp of the GPU? I have a temp gauge on the front of my PC but I am guessing that's just overall temperature. Thanks for responding though

I didn't think it would but it's a fairly old CPU opposed to the GPU which is much better, also for some reason in Battlefield 4 it uses A LOT of CPU power almost 100%, isn't that bottlenecking?
I uploaded a picture from HWMonitor so you can see, maybe it is the PSU it was extremely cheap (only £15 - $25) for a 600w maybe you're right it can't get enough power since I added the new powerful Nvidia GPU.
Thanks for your help!
