Frame rate problems , need help and advice

Recommended Posts

Posted · Original PosterOP

So for some reason my games have had noticeable decline of FPS. When I first put together this PC (Not too long ago), everything has been running smoothly and loading pretty quickly but over time, my games that ran easily with 200+ FPS are now at a minimum 160 and sometimes can take a nosedive to 60 or 40. My guess is my missing BOOT, causing latency and the only thing I have for storage is a Seagate Barracuda Compute 2 TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive . Been looking up online for a good SSD for sale but before I make the purchase I wanna make sure it's the source of my problem and not something else. Any help or advice would be greatly appreciated 


Here are my PC parts just in case:
