Pc specs 

  • Intel Core i7 7700 3.6GHz Processor
  • Asus H110M-R Motherboard
  • 16GB Corsair Vengeance LPX 2400MHz DDR4 RAM
  • Nvidia GeForce® GTX 1060 6GB Graphics Card
  • Seagate Barracuda 1TB 7200rpm Hard Drive

isijg a 24inch screen, 1980 x 1080 60hz refresh rate 

Game play just seems a bit laggy/patchy and doesn't seem to flow well 

Things you need to do/consider:

- don't buy pre built gaming PCs or at least pick ALL the parts yourself and let it be build for you

- never believe idiotic marketing like "plays bf1 on ultra EZPZ". Just don't

- a GTX 1060 does NOT run bf1 in ultra on playable settings (minimum fps +60)

- 60hz screen is a bad choice nowadays. 144Hz minimum.

- clean install windows (it's an option in windows 10, just do it)

- install everything again, but only stuff you need: NO BLOAT

- DISABLE DVR in your windows settings (it should be under xbox app or something, just google). DVR makes every game run like crap

- if you have w10 creator update: disable game bar (everything, leave nothing on)

- install the programs you need, f.e. steam, origin, etc..

- intall newest nvidia driver

- install bf1 and use nvidia optimized settings

- play bf1

 - note that you are playing on a 60hz monitor which makes things feel choppy and blurry even if you have 9999999FPS

- first upgrade to consider: 144hz monitor

- 2nd upgrade to consider: SSD

- 3th upgrade to consider: high quality PSU

- if possible: return your PC, build 1 yourself.

It depends. If you're accustomed to 120hz, 60 might feel choppy. I have 60hz monitor and it feels good so far, but i'm afraid that if I upgrade to 120/144 in the future, i'll never be able to look at 60hz again -_-

This might be a thing. Turned on, it caused massive fps drops in CS:GO back in the days.

O.K., I got lazy and didn't read everything posted so this might have been mentioned.

 

Your new gaming PC probably came with a 'gaming' network card (my Alienware did years ago), and some other 'gaming' software.  What happened to me was that Between Microsoft Windows, Norton AV, and the 'gaming' network card, I had three firewalls running at the same time just on the PC.  Count my router's firewall and that made 4 things evaluating each and every packet and it lagged my games.  

 

Check for extra firewalls and decide if you can do without some.

 

I hope this helps.

Is the game still choppy if you have the game in lower video settings say Medium or Low?  Also when I bought my last card there was some Asus program that would record my videos as I played. Took awhile to realize that was turned on by default, and so make sure there's nothing running in the background that could be recording footage. Also Xbox DVR is a must to fix. I would follow the link below to make sure it is disabled. I built my whole rig that easily gets 300fps on csgo, and when DVR was enabled I had only 120fps max. So definitely check on that.

It depends. Getting an IPS with that refresh rate is pretty expensive

don't get IPS, good TN panels have good color production and for gaming TN is good. Unless you want epic color reproduction. BenQ/ASUS have good TN models

For me BF1 is running bad, but it's because the CPU (i5 2500k @ 4.0GHz).
I'm pretty sure that you will be able to play BF1 on ultra-settings with a nvidia GTX-1060 and a newer CPU because this game is definitely more CPU-based.

I'm a sort of digital artist and I need the best color reproduction possible.
It's true that some TN once calibrated are similar to IPS but I still prefer my ultrawide IPS B|
