cpu is usually at like 95 to 100% but ram stays at like 8gb or something used

well the cpu is at its limits

that's what holding your gpu back

crank the setting a little higher

you will see how your gpu utilization goes up

Hello I've been encountering this issue where when I'm playing steamvr my gpu is not as powerful as it should be.
kinda weird just wondering if this is normal or my pc is messed up?

Specs:
Cpu fx-6300

Gpu GTX 950 windforce
SSD 60 gb (for windows)
HDD 1tb (for games)
RAM 12gb ddr3

Guessing it's because you have a 3 core Bulldozer chip.

 

And a GTX 950, when SteamVR recommends a GTX 970 as *minimum*

CPU is the BottleNeck here. U need to Upgrade Motherboard and CPU to increase performance and can keep everything same.

 

Then next upgrade will be Ram to DDR4 (hence also need new CPU and Mobo which supports DDR4)

Straight for AM4. Putting any money into an FX system now is like setting that money on fire. 

Your "PC master race" thing is cringe.

AM4 or LGA1700. Or, if you end up buying after ~Q4 2022, AM5 will be out as well.
