Computer type: Desktop, custom built
GPU: ASUS GTX 1050 ti 4gb VRAM, overclock: core +175mhz, memory +750mhz
CPU: Intel i5-6500, no overclock
Motherboard: Gigabyte z170-hd3, BIOS date: 02/23/16 Ver: 05.0000B
RAM: HyperX 8GB 2666mhz
PSU: Floston 650W
Monitor: BenQ Gl 2250-H, 1920x1080 native resolution
OS: Windows 10 Home 64bit
GPU Driver: 430.53, clean install, driver only (without geforce experience)
I have SSD and HDD as well, both are pretty good.

Problem:
My problem is that after I reinstalled windows and all the basic programs, I started to install my games and the required components and drivers. But after I finally launched the game, after I tweaked the settings to the previously used one (before reinstallation) the game was not as smooth as before, the general performance was lower and the graphics were bad, even on higher settings. I did not understand the cause of the problem, it ran perfectly before. And especially, anti-aliasing is very bad in every game. The lines and the edges are not smooth, and the objects in the distance have very poor quality, have shimmering effects and appear very pixely.
How is it possible that before reinstallation, every game worked and perfectly on the same settings as now, but after OS installation they don't run as well as before?!

The games, I have the issue with (for now, because not everything is installed): Rainbow Six Siege, PUBG, Forza Horizon 4, Far Cry 5, Overwatch, GTA 5, basically every newer game
Before anyone says that my pc does not support the requirements for 1080p 60 fps gameplay, I do confirm that I always wanted the best graphics, and every game worked on the best graphics possible and ran with 60 fps. (texture - high, shadow - low, anisotropic filtering - 16X, antialiasing - fxaa or 4x msaa or taa (whichever is available), motion blur - off, best environment and object quality possible, etc) .
Before the reinstallation, I had the windows installed for 1 year and since then I don't really remember if I have done any other tweaks or configurations somewhere. to achieve better performance.

Please guys help me, I'm really hopeless, after hours of research a haven't really found any information. I was planning before the issue occurred, to upgrade gpu to an rtx 2060/2070 or to an amd new generation gpu (waiting to be released). But I accept every tip and help. Thank you!

Troubleshooting:
Microsoft Live chat help, nvidia chat support with 4 different agents, clean reinstall twice with disk formats, updating windows, downloading required software updates like DirectX, visual c++, net framework, dust cleaning , re-plugging HDMI cable, tweaking settings in control panel, disabling gaming mode and other background applications, clean boot, highering and lowering resolution, configuring monitor settings, searching for other fixes.
None of these worked, issue still occurs.

I include the Nvidia control panel settings, I carefully configured these after long reading and search on the internet.

I also include some clips to help to visualise the problem. Please watch them on a bigger screen (not on the phone) and on the best quality.

Well why did you reinstall windows? From where did you reinstall it? Did you have to Microsoft provided disk or USB or did you use your own usb ? I know that I will not be able to help you, but I am just gathering more details. It is one of those unsolved issues and it has been around a decade long without any solution because especially the hardware manufacturers and the software manufacturers like AMD, Nvidia,Intel, Microsoft etc. have not acknowledged the issue so the solutions that you get from them and from anywhere else is not going to solve your issue because the cause is not clear. For some it solves randomly like changing a piece of hardware or software but the reason is not clear and for some it never solves. And the issue is real I can say that but it is so far and scarce but more than that just unreasonable and that is why it is not solved yet till so many years. So unless some huge company takes it on as a main focus challenge to solve it is very unlikely that other less advanced users will be able to solve it. And even then it might take a long time to just completely solve the issue for those huge companies like a year or two and that much time they don't have to solve a customer issue that is so scarce and demanding , they would rather make new products and sell them and tell you to just upgrade your pc and turn on full blown anti aliasing, which won't really solve the problem but certainly reduce it. Just hope that you are lucky and some change here or there solves it for you.

I reinstalled windows via Media Creation Tool, from Microsoft's website. I also realized that a lot of people have this issue unsolved. I really can't find any solution, Nvidia recommended GPU slot clean and BIOS update which i will do this summer. I haven't had such a complicated issue before, I am experienced in PCs and i can help others and my friends if they have anything, but this is different.

You , then will have to do what they said first. It is a matter of chance , really. There is no real cause but there has to be some cause. Just follow them for now.
 
PSU: Floston 650W
Just out of curiosity, is that a PSU brand ? And, is it 80 plus certified ? Never heard of this brand before. Even though your current AA issue might NOT be related to the power supply, I would still recommend you to get some other high quality PSU model, if possible, unless the current FLOSTON PSU is indeed very good and a trustworthy unit.

Go for known brands like Be Quiet, EVGA, Seasonic, Cooler Master, FSP, ANTEC, Corsair and other similar brands. You shouldn't skimp on the PSU though. This is the most important component. Power supplies are an imperative part of your system that should not be taken lightly. Throwing in a budget PSU could result in poor power efficiency or even a wrecked system.

Just my thoughts.

Yes i know that the psu is not the best one, but i haven't had any problem with power yet, but a psu upgrade is indeed in plan with another motherboard + cpu //// or another gpu. I am just waiting for the new generation ryzen cpus and gpus

Hey, did you ever found a fix?
Yeah. But the fix is partial. Turns out, my screw(only 1 screw, because the scewhole is slightly misaligned) which held the gpu in place was loosened, and the card was slightly bent. I took out the card, cleaned the slot. I somehow re-aligned the screwholes by force. I put the card back, tightened it with 3 screws now.

The problem was fixed in pubg, rainbow six siege, far cry 5 and forza horizon 4. However, Minecraft looks bad in the distance, optifine did not help much either(it made it a bit better). Overwatch still hurts my eyes, nothing has fixed. GTA 5 is fixed partially, the game doesn't look as bad as before, the ropes, lines, cables are way better now, only the render distance is a bit bad. However, my pc cannot handle it on the same settings as before, it sometimes stutters, so i dont know what the problem could be. But turns out, other people, with even high-end builds have experienced bad performance. Maybe its just the game.

However, my new build is really close, all I need now is to sell my parts, or at least trade them in. I think, this problem occurred when i moved my pc case to the other side of the desk. But really unlucky timing, because I honestly thought the problem was caused by the windwos reinstallation. I think because of this, the card was slightly damaged as well, hanging there in the slot and being pulled down by it's weight.

Just reading your reply hurt me. Please. Always make sure the card is in all the way and make sure it doesn't move at all (while the case/motherboard is still placed horizontally).
Now the other issue, maybe you already damaged your card beyond help by not keeping it properly fixed. OR you had other Nvidia settings on before. Like in the Nvidia settings 3D programs, you maybe had Nvidia's own AA set as default in ALL GAMES as in "override game settings".
Otherwise the only explanation is that you don't have all the proper drivers, motherboard included, directx, etc. OR you have new stuff like bad antiviruses or other apps that are eating up your performance. Or you forgot to set your power plan to PERFORMANCE.
Normally after a clean install you should gain fps not lose them. Unless you did something wrong or different to your software.

I understand what you are saying, but my problem wasn't related to the settings, drivers, programs, etc. My antivirus is the default (and i use it regularly). Power plan on performance as well. I don't have any other apps. I'm sure the problem here was caused by the card not being fixed correctly. And as I said, the newer games are fixed 95%. I know how Forza Horizon 4 looked like before the reinstall and after. I primarily spotted the problem there. But now is gone.
