Ram. 16GB should help a bit. Though what games are you struggling with. What drive do you have?

The fingers of the devil plucked us from our land, never to return. Now I am the sole heir to the throne.

What kind of drops are you experiencing? Ram will definitely help for sure. Are you running a single stick? If you are that would explain a lot. You are running in single channel, having memory bandwidth.

Swap in another 8GB stick. Make sure the ram is installed in the correct slots, otherwise if they are in different channels it will still be single channel.  Also, dips are normal in games. Nothing you really cannot do about that.

Are you gonna do anything else on the pc apart from playing games? If not than you don’t need 32gb, better to buy higher quality 16gb instead (higher mhz, less cas)

Honestly as stated above, 32GB is not really needed. If anything, get some ram of around 3200-3600MHz 16GB kit.
