<Lag?>

1. Examine closer
You should ask yourself a couple of questions first:

Does it lag only when you look at a specific part of the map?
If yes, that means that the map you're playing on is poorly optimized and every single thing is rendered at all times. Good maps don't render things that you can't see.

Did you or someone spawn a lot of props? (200 or more?)
High amount of props will always make lag. That's because every single of them has to be seperately rendered and physics have to be calculated all the time.

Do you have a lot of programs open?
Obvious question. Make sure to keep running programs to minimum.

Is your computer overloaded?
Obvious question. Kinda the same as last time.

If 2 or more answers are yes, the lag can't be fixed. I'm sorry.
But, if they're almost all no, you can safely continue.

2. Fix the lag
Now, let's start with fixin' it up!
There are a few methods, some of them are efficient and some aren't.
Each one will give you about 5% FPS boost. 

2a. Task Manager stuff

Set Priorities gmod over other programs

2b. In-Game options
I see the look on your faces, you're like "dafuq m9 mah pc is 2good4u whai bahd setinghs". But this is something different, it applies on ALL hardware. :P

What does it do: Reduces the smoothness of straight lines, as GPUs have to calculate this real-time and most of the times the more it is set on, the less FPS you will get.

2c. Console Commands, Autoexec 

What does it do: Basically forces gmod to use more CPU cores and allocates more RAM to it.
How to do: Go to C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\cfg and locate the file called autoexec.cfg. If you can't find one, make it. Open it with Notepad++ or Notepad or Wordpad or something like that that can open text files and write this into it: 

mat_queue_mode "0"
mem_max_heapsize "2048"
host_thread_mode "4" //8 for octa-core, 6 for hexa-core, 4 for quad-core, 2 for double-core
r_threaded_client_shadow_manager "1"
r_threaded_particles "1"
r_threaded_renderables "1"
r_queued_decals "1"
r_queued_post_processing "1"
threadpool_affinity "4" //8 for octa-core, 6 for hexa-core, 4 for quad-core, 2 for double-core
 

2e. Overclocking (NEW)

WARNING: If done incorrectly, it can result in breaking your hardware and loss of data. Do this ONLY when you're really sure when you know what ya' doin'.
Also, I am not responsible for any kinds of damage to your stuff.

You should really do overclocking when you can't buy a new CPU or GPU or the default clocks are purpuosely set low for overclockers. Check on Google if your CPU can be overclocked and if it won't bluescreen at you.

There are 2 options: hardware and software overclocking. Hardware is mostly used for CPUs, while software mostly for GPUs.

Software:
GPU: MSI Afterburner is the best one, you can adjust all the clocks, voltages, fan speeds etc.
CPU: For AMD, try AMD Overdrive. For Intel, find some on the web.

4. Well, is my PC really that good as I think?
"wjiodahiwduohdsuisdhiwjhsuadihcuyaweghbuidw mah peesee is da bezt hau cen u fing it iz bed!!!1"

But is your rig really that good?

A few things:

It seems from both some comments and from my experience, that Source hates some of the AMD stuff. I can confirm that Phenom CPUs and older Radeon GPUs are running slower than their equivalents in Source. Really depends on the engine tho.

Your drivers might be outdated. It's like having a really expensive TV but the remote is an old rusty bad-quality thing. Now, 99.999999999999999999999999999% of the time, your drivers are ALWAYS up to date. So, this applies most to older rigs.

That computer might have been packed with the i7-4xxx, 32GB DDR3 RAM, but the GPU is one of the things you find somewhere in the darkest place of your house, lying there for years untouched. Or 32GB DDR3 RAM, GTX Titan and... maybe a Core 2 Duo? OR, i7, AMD R9 290 and 2GB RAM?
This thing's called a bottleneck. Yes, I think it's obvious, but still... meh.

Or, if your system is overall really slow even when it shouldn't be, it can be because of 3 things:
Slow HDD
Too many programs and s**t
Viruses

Okay, now you know if that box has as much powaaaaaaaaa as you think?

5. Last Words
Congratulations! You have successfully removed some lag from your gmod!

Thanks for reading this guide. If it worked, leave a like, also don't forget to comment about other things that fix lag and I will add t

This is just if you are getting in-game lag i wanted to help those who are having the issue
