Lately, my GPU has been acting up lately and performs extremely abnormally for what it was suppose to. For reference, I've had this graphics card since 2016 and it was all okay till recently. After a hardware upgrade and couple software updates later, it starts to stutter and drop in frames every 2-3 minutes. The spiking is bad enough already but I had tried to look past it because after upgrading my motherboard, ram, and CPU, I wasn't trying to spend more since I was perfectly fine with my cooling solution and graphics card. The spiking progressively got worse where it would take a bit to come back to it's full utilization. What I mean by this is for example, in cs:go I can have frames going in the range of 300-390 but then suddenly drop to 2 then stay between 15-25, to 30, back to the full 300 frames. This isn't just with games as well, it's over my entire system. Simply moving a window or my cursor around will freeze for a couple seconds and then slingshot across the screen. I've recorded what happens in an MSI afterburner graph while I was running cs:go for reference. I'm also running the latest BIOS update on my motherboard and nvidia drvier update 451.85.
Thanks to anyone that tries to help!!!
