Method 1 - Drivers

Nvidia

Nvidia drivers sometimes are a bit wonky. When my hardware arrived my drivers had to be reinstalled in order to get my graphics card working properly.

1 - Download your drivers from their official site.

2 - Download GeForce Experience to maintain latest drivers

AMD

I personally have no experience with AMD graphics.

1 - Download your drivers from their official site.

Method 2 - Commands

1 - Goto autoexec.cfg

(C:\Program Files (x86)\Steam\steamapps\common\GarrysMod\garrysmod\cfg)

2 - Paste the following:

mat_queue_mode "0"
mem_max_heapsize "2048"
