Probably not the PSU.  

Are you monitoring CPU and GPU usage and temps during games?

EDIT - 

I might stand corrected here.  The official guide actually has a 650W as the minimum spec.

I just edited.  It might be the PSU based on Nvidia's minimum specs.

ill monitor the power draw and check if thats the problem i just found out that i can do that in the gpu tweak (asus's own software)

You can do that, but I'd upgrade the PSU to the minimum spec if I was you.  

Not only is it recommended by the manufacturer, it will eliminate the possibility that is the problem.

Nvidia said you needed 650W for a 980 Ti too. Which is a higher power consumption card, and I ran that off a 450W PSU fine. 

550W is enough wattage for almost any modern single CPU and single GPU setup, unless you're stepping into HEDT. 

As for the PSU itself, the VS series is... eeeeh. Would reccomend getting a 550W CX (2017) or TXM unit, or higher. Sometimes the higher wattage ones are cheaper though, in that case just get one of those. Doubt it'd fix fps drops, that's not normally a PSU issue AFAIK. But it will be a more dependable unit and you are running some pretty expensive hardware. 

 

What RAM/how much RAM do you have? What resolution do you play at, and what games are giving you drops?

Is this Corsair VS PSU an orange or gray label?
The gray label should run okay, but as @Zando Bob said, you would be really pushing it.. The VS orange label would absolutely NOT be recommended with this GPU and should be upgraded ASAP.

 

If you want to properly test your PC, I would recommend running 3DMark FireStrike and TimeSpy (can be done for free via the demo on Steam) to see how your PC actually performs.

You are using around 300w while gaming with that setup, its not psu. (I run I5 6500 with a rtx2080 and using a wall socket power meter, I pull 320w during gaming) 

 

Fps loss will not be due to power supply. Psu issues would be more catastrophic like crashing, bsod etc. I would look to see if windows updated recently. That is much more likely to be the issue.

Definitely not recommended with this system.

The VS orange label series are meant for office PC's, not desktops high end GPU's.

Depends on what is available where you live..

But if you're from (Western) Europe, Be Quiet has some good offerings. Straight Power 11 for example. That is quite comparable to the RMX from Corsair. The TXM from Corsair is also an option.

 

It's probably easier to say, any Tier A or better from this list will suit you well:

Yea, it's a great quality PSU.

What's your RAM and CPU usage? I know Modern Warfare can eat CPU, and last I played Star Citizen it was very demanding (that was after the performance patch too, though I think they've made it even better now). Most people heavily into it run 32GB RAM and install the game on a 970 Evo or similar NVMe drive for better perf.
