You will see alot of difference with dual channel because with your specs now the single channel is holding back your performance so change the ram about and make it dual channel then you might not get shuttering and low fps.

still, it may not fix the stuttering, but dual channel is better, be sure to buy the ram in a set because those are guaranteed to work together. adding a stick--even with the same mfg and timings-- to what you have might work, but you have to be the tester because it might not.

make sure all your drivers are correct and up to date for the most part, sometimes you need to go back a version or two with GPU drivers to get one that won't stutter on your machine.

ok thanks
about adding new sticks i wont be able to get two sticks so what should i check while buying a single stick and what tests should i make to ensure both are working correctkly
 
i7-8700
Supported memory: DDR4-2666
DIMMs per channel: 2

Adding extra memory has no guarantee to be compatible with existing memory. Memory is guaranteed in the form sold.

You can test for defective memory with
MemTest86

You need to set memory parameters in BIOS either via enabling XMP or manually. Leaving memory set to [Auto] may cause the memory to run at conservative Serial Presence Detect (SPD) settings.

I would recommend using a kit of two DDR4-2666MHz modules.
