Question Consistent performance issues with TF2

Hello everybody,

I recently set up my old PC with windows 10 and have been playing games on it since. My PC is quite dated, but for the kind of games I play it is more than enough. But I've run into sort of a perplexing problem: Team Fortress 2 will never perform well consistently. I've capped the FPS at 60, and yet no matter the configuration, my FPS wildly fluctuate between 60 and 25 or so. It doesn't matter if I run the game on all low on Direct X 80 or an all high on DX 9, the performance choke remains more or less the same.

My Hardware:
GPU - Nvidia GTX660
CPU- AMD Athlon II 4x 3000Mhz
Mainboard - ASRock A75M-HVS
RAM - 8GB

I've heard TF2 is a CPU heavy game, but my CPU rarely clocks in above 85% use while playing, so the constant choking makes little sense to me. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
