Question / Help FPS Drop when opening OBS


New Member

So I'm new to the stream business and OBS seems great, I just have this one problem where it drops the FPS of the games I want to play drastically. I play League and Dark Souls to start my game list, and they run fine when OBS isn't open. I haven't added any scenes, it's not streaming anything, but it still decides to take all my FPS! I've dropped my specs and my OBS settings in the post for anyone that can take a swing at it.

Oh, and I use GeForce Experience to help with Dark Souls.

Thanks for the help!
