Do 2 runs of this^.
One with the 1080, the other using the 970, and post links to these results, like so:

Hey I know I'm a month late but just now had the chance to switch out my GPUs to test.

With 1080: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/21056522

With 970: https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/21061147

I'm still super confused though because now with the same setup as before I had even purchased my 1080, my FPS is SIGNIFICANTLY lower than it was back then. (From almost always above 200 fps to barely hitting 120 with same components)

Not sure anymore at this point.

1)Gpu and cpu temps are good.

2)I noticed XMP/DOCP wasn't enabled in either benchmark. The memory was running at 2133, not 3200.

3)Windows up to date.

4)Windows files are intact?https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026529/windows-10-using-system-file-checker

5)Windows Game Bar and Game Mode disabled.

6)PC is clean of viruses/malware? https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

7)Motherboard drivers updated.

After all that, only other thing I can think of is software, or combinations of software, that are causing performance problems.
Your system should be capable of 120+ fps in CS:GO on ultra settings; more at lower settings.
