Low fps in games with RTX 2060.

I have i5 4440 and 8 GB RAM. I upgraded my GPU to RTX 2060 but I am getting only 10 - 20 fps in games with a 1080p medium setting.

Games tried: GTA 5 and God of war.

In starting of gameplay it shows 60+ fps but then it goes down to 20- fps. GPU temp remains at around 50 - 60 Celcius.

An i5 4440 will most certainly bottleneck an RTX 2060. I think your CPU is holding you back here. Have you done any benchmarks?

It's probably your 8GB RAM. Your games run smooth until RAM fills up. 16GB is the minimum for modern games nowadays. I would also upgrade CPU and motherboard too. The i5 4440 is a weak 4 core 4 thread CPU and even the cheapest 12th gen Intel i3 is much faster. There's no point in buying more DDR3 RAM anymore. 

Intel Core i7-11700F / Asus TUF Gaming B560-Plus WiFi / 32GB DDR4 3600Mhz CL16 Dual Rank / Asus RTX 3060 Ti Dual OC Edition @2070Mhz /  Samsung 980 Pro 1TB / WD Blue SN550 1TB / Fractal Design Meshify 2 Compact & Ion+ 760W Platinum / Lenovo G27Q-20 (1440p & 165Hz IPS)

What are CPU temps under load?

Still shouldn't give 10-20 fps. It's better than the recommended CPU for GTA 5. God of war should also give better framerate.

That is most likely a bottleneck. If you haven't yet, install application like msi afterburner, for you to monitor fps and usage. When you are gaming, if you see your cpu, i5 4440 at 100% utilization, but your gpu like 60% or lower. It would confirm that it's really too much bottleneck. Basically, the gpu is waiting for your cpu to finish processing as it takes too long.

Is stock cooler enough for cooling or not?

Yes, stock cooler is enough for that CPU.

 

Clean the cooler and remount it. Confirm the fan works on it.
