    Could also be that the server You connect to is only feeding You at 60fps.

    Or Your'net connection speed.

    Get a 144hz or 240hz monitor to see the difference or see if vsync is the problem.Background tasks might also be the issue.Try disabling some in task manager

    If the machine seems capped at 60fps then try checking to see if V-Sync, Adaptive Sync, G Sync is enabled. Disable anything with the name sync in it.

    However the reasoning for having this enabled is to prevent screen tearing.

    If that doesn’t work then reduce the amount of mods you have running since this will tax the CPU and then lower framerates when the Render thread is competing with other threads.

    In order to make use of getting more than 60fps, you would need a 144hz or 240hz Display. Bear in mind that a high refresh rate Display is only beneficial when the screen is in motion, which is why these high refresh rate displays are popular for esports/fps, and fast paced action games.

    However higher Framerates have also been known to reduce input lag in games like CS:GO and other games.

    uh, dude? your display cannot run at 200fps (200Hz), so how is it even possible?

    the human eye cannot see more than 60fps, so what is the problem here?

    if you want it to run that high, decrease the render distance, or use fewer mods.

    Because your computer is a crappy notebook.

    Check to make sure you’re running the most up-to-date drivers.

    If this was a newly built system...Windows has a lot of drivers and that may have fooled you into thinking it’s all right and done...but until you get the proper drivers in, performance will take a hit.

    And not just the Video Card...but the MoBo drivers. One of them might optimize the data flow through the expansion slots

    That’s just one of many possibilities. But it’s also the easiest to sort out.
