How can you even check your GPU usage?

Check if there is an driver update...

that game may look low res but it is using modern rendering methods and higher mesh counts so the GPU workload will be higher then it would look like it needs to be.

Also the GT 520 is not really a gaming GPU

What are the specs of your machine? OS? CPU? RAM? Etc?

Here's what you should be looking into if you are having this kind of problem.

-Driver updates.

-Graphics card temperature.

-CPU temperature.

-Power consumption .

-Bottle neck capabilities.

-And Ram usage.

Check your graphic card fans then, maybe their filled up with dust. The same applies to all of your computers fans. And if your still having problems then you need to check your current version of java, .NET, and Graphics card drivers. And if your still having problems then contact your graphics card vendor and file a report on your problem.

It is because it's rendered using OpenGL.
