In RedM, the first thing to try is very simple and all it requires is to change a single setting.
To do this just hit ESC > Settings > Graphics. Then change your ADVANCED video settings from Vulkan to Direct x12 -- or vice versa.
In FiveM, switching from Direct x11 to Direct x10 can actually GREATLY improve performance for low-end PCs.
Once done all you have to do is restart your game!
If your game is already set to Direct X12 then the issue relies elsewhere -- continue reading below.
Sometimes these things can happen!
For this step all you have to do is Verify your Red Dead Redemption 2 or Grand Theft Auto 5 Files.
To do this all you need to do is:
1. Open whichever launcher you bought the game from, i.e Steam, Rockstar or Epic.
2. Right click the game and select Options / Properties.
3. Click on Verify Files and wait for it to complete.
If none of the above work then the next thing to try would be to Load up Red Dead Redemption 2 Singleplayer or RDO and run it. Same applies for Grand Theft Auto 5 Singleplayer or GTAO.
Get into a space where you can wander and do so for 10 minutes. Then try to load into the server.
The cache copies all of the texture files from the main game.
If you haven't loaded the game up your Game Folder won't have those files by default unless you load up the original game first.
Files with the SGA extension are created when you play the game. They are compressed files containing maps and other large items related to Mapping. But sometimes they can cause the game to crash. So to help fix the issue we will delete them!
To do this just follow these simple steps!
1. Press the Windows Key + E to open your file explorer and select your Documents Folder.
2. Click on the folder marked Rockstar Games then select Red Dead Redemption 2 then settings.
3. Look for any file beginning with “sga” and delete them. DO NOT DELETE ANY OTHER FILES.
Once done try loading up the server.

This is a common issue for NVIDIA users.
Sometimes Graphics Drivers can cause issues on certain games, due to either a bad install or due to them being unoptimized for the game itself.
So to do this we will go over how to roll back your drivers!
Below we have a handy guide and a piece of free software that can be used to help make driver updates easier for users!

Some Systems come with Integrated Graphics installed (To work without a Graphics card) These Integrated Graphics are Minimal, usually enough to run the PCs basic graphical Functions. If you have a Proper Graphics Card then there is no reason to have Integrated Graphics Active on your PC.

b. Type “devmgmt.msc” without quotes, and then click OK. Device Manager opens.
c. Expand Display Adapters.

The next time you Check Task manager you should only see your Graphics card.
