Turning here because I am stumped, my gaming PC is performing way lower than it should while gaming. My PC is https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B06Y6HQDXK/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o03_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 with some changes. I upgraded to this graphics card https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B01IR5MR32/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o01_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1 replaced my drive with a Samsung 1TB SSD and added 8 more GB of RAM.

I use my PC mainly for gaming and have seen a pretty large decline in performance with both Destiny 2 and PUBG. I am only getting around 30 fps and it dips lower often. I am not super familiar with PCs and have gotten some help here and there from friends, I have already done the following:

-Cleaned the PC with canned air (this is done often)
-Done a complete hard reset of my PC, reinstalling windows 10
-I am not overclocking and my temperatures seem to be ok, when running a game and twitch the highest my GPU temp gets to is 70 C.
-Went to a previous version of a graphics driver
-uninstalled all graphic drivers and reistalled the latest ones
-In game settings are all low, in Destiny I am running 1566/6052 MB, similiar in PUBG
-I ran a gpu-z program and all of my #s matched what they should
-While running a game some #s: gpu core clock 1860, gpu memory clock 2003.4 gpu temp 68, fan speed 26%, memory used 2447, task manager has my GPU % around the 70-80 range

Any ideas out there?

Can you post the brand and model name or number of the PSU for us, system builders are notorious for using junk to keep their costs down, allowing for your additional upgrades at the very bare minimum you should have a minimum of a 500W quality brand Bronze efficiency rated PSU.
