I've had quite a bit of problem running games lately, and am suspecting it's more of a compatibility issue than anything. When Running Monster Hunter World, I originally had massive frame rate drops, but uninstalling nVidia GeForce Experience solved that problem, but can't get above 230 FPS, even though my system is only at 25% capacity. 7 Days to Die (a much less intense game) slows down to a crawl with more than three zombies on the screen and still only uses around 20% capacity even on the lowest system settings. My best guess is that the processor is the culprit, even though I'm nowhere near taxing it out.

Mobo: MSI 990FXA GAMING
CPU: AMD FX-8350
RAM: 32.0GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
Graphics: 4095MB NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1070 (MSI)
