Question / Help Loss of frame rate both in game and even worse in recordings


New Member
Hi all,

I haven't used obs before so a lot of the settings are a bit confusing but I was experiencing a lot of lag in both game and recording when I started playing a game recently. My computer is able to run the game at max settings with no issues - however when I try to record (even with really low game settings) I'm still getting lag? Is it because my computer just can't handle this or is there something up with my settings?

I want to record this footage to upload so I would like the best quality possible. If anyone can spot my issue and suggest some settings I would be very grateful.

Seems like the GPU runs bottlenecked (full load).
Limit ingame FPS, and reduce game details, until GPU load while gaming+OBS stays under 95%.
Also disable Windows 10 Game DVR
