@nikeswoosh: First off, what kind of frame rates are you getting? 100% GPU usage means that your system is healthy, but your GPU is working to its maximum capacity. If you are getting over 60fps in games, then turn on V-Sync and it will keep your fps at 60 if you have a 60hz monitor and will lower your GPU usage. If you are getting less than 60fps, it means your GPU is too weak and is a bottleneck. Try turning down settings to bring it closer to 60fps.

If your getting 100% gpu usage in games that's good since that means your cpu is feeding the gpu all the frame data it can handle and its working at full capacity. Now the only issue of running into 100% usage is if your temperatures get too high or if your game performance is not as good as you want(showing that the gpu isnt strong enough for the job).

depends on what settings and resolution you wanna play. at 1080p, low ,medium or mix of high and low, you're good. new games at 1080p high, very high you needed a RX 580 8GB at minimum.
