@Sohan0073 Are you overclocking the card or CPU, if so remove the overclocks.

Did you get the drivers from NVIDIA or just let Windows update do them?

Try these ones from NVIDIA

If  you have the latest ones, try older ones.

Reseat the graphics card, take it out put it back in.

The last I can think of before saying reinstall Windows again is, defragment the HDD

Use something like Piriform Defraggler.

If all fails reinstall Windows again and recheck if the issue persists.

When the PC is acting up haunted,

who ya gonna call?

A HDD stores data on a spinning platter.

It doesn't always put data next to other relevant data, making reading slower.

Some games ask data quicker then the HDD can give them, then it would cause the GPU to drop to 0% since it doesn't get next instructions.

When reinstalling Windows your HDD sometimes just clutters up, sometimes causing these problems.

You will not see a difference, no folders/files will move.

For the PC it'll of course be different, but you will not notice!

 

TL;DR

It rearranges data to make it quicker to access.

If the HDD is not sending info to the CPU at a decent speed, or load it into the memory on time.

It stutters or freezes (Which also leaves the GPU without work)

Slow HDD's also have this in most occasions. (Yours is fine!)
