I know this has probably been brought up before but I was wondering if someone could help me since my computers kinda broken and I'd like someone to explain something to me.
(Also I know this has probably been referred to, but hear me out)
My computer has always had issues (since I first got it) it may run a game really well but then it runs a game to me which seems to be simpler slower etc.
With The Sims 4 I used to play with Ultra settings, it always ran fine, however it would sometimes black screen, I was led to believe this was an issue with the motherboard however.
But anyway, I later because the black screening still worried me decided to tune down my settings to laptop mode and my lighting to simply "high".
Later I got my graphics card "fixed", a friend of mine gave me a new one of the same kind.
So I started playing the Sims 4 again, I ran it in laptop mode again, of course the visuals are kinda worse, so I tried running the game back to ultra without laptop mode and with lighting on high simply. The game made my computer make lots of noise (especially on the main menu) but I think the temperatures were normal.
I later tried enabling "Uncompressed Sims textures", this made my computer stop making so much noise which has gotten me worried as to how I should play the game graphically because I don't really understand what's going on with my computer, the main menu shouldn't be making my computer make so much noise and uncompressed textures should make it make more noise, I think the temperatures may be higher with it on though.
So I'm just confused, I was wondering if anyone could give me some insight as to how I should run my game because I've dreaded to play because of these issues, I can run the game completely smoothly with any settings however.
If anyone could inform me so I'm not harming my computer etc and understand why its doing this help would be appreciated because my computer has reaction really weirdly to some games.
My specs: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-4690 CPU @ 3.50GHz 3.50GHz
Graphics Card: AMD Radeon R9 200 Series
I'm not sure if that's all I need to say for the specs of if I even have the right information...
