getting very bad draw distance...
Distant textures are popping in when I go closer
the draw distance of a game is set by the game engine, not your particular hardware.

draw distance is how far into the horizon you can see.
in-game textures popping up when you draw near to them is not the same thing as problems with draw distance.

usually these types of texture "popup" issues are due to the game data files not being able to load fast enough.
this can be caused by the games being installed onto a slow or failing drive,
not having the necessary CPU performance to feed the data to your GPU fast enough,
or your GPU not being able to process the data being fed by your CPU fast enough.

I have tried a hot fix driver
what do you mean?
Nvidia hasn't posted any hotfix updates for quite some time now.
if you're downloading junk from random sites this could very well be the cause of any issues.

if it's some particular game's hotfix/patch then providing that information would be necessary if others have encountered the issue and managed to fixed it.
most objects have a shinning shimmering affect
this can usually be improved by using custom texture filter settings in 'NCP > Manage 3D Settings > Program Settings' for a particular game.
having some issues on my system with draw distance
and what do you mean by this?
distant textures not loading, distant details not up to par, etc...
you need to provide much more information if you're looking for advice on how to fix anything.

I’m getting very bad draw distance in majority of games I’m not very intelligent when it comes to tech so don’t know how to go in depth about this but I see on YouTube it’s shimmering and draw distance issues in games that I’m having and I spoke to nvidea live chat and they gave me a hot fix driver to try but didn’t work so I reinstalled my new one

Distant textures are popping in when I go closer to them and have all shiny jagged edges on most of them is there anyway I can upload a short clip that you could see

usually these types of texture "popup" issues are due to the game data files not being able to load fast enough.

not having the necessary CPU performance to feed the data to your GPU fast enough,
or your GPU not being able to process the data being fed by your CPU fast enough.

i ran an i7-8700K with a GTX 1080 Ti for a couple years and never experienced these types of issues with newer more demanding games @ 3440x1440p with mostly higher settings.

so i would assume either the drive they are installed on is failing,
your graphics card settings are out of whack,
you have some background processes taking up CPU usage,
your GPU is failing,
system memory is having issues,
you are infected with some malware,
or your game data may be corrupted.

first try opening Nvidia Control Panel.
on Manage 3D Settings page click 'Restore'.

if this doesn't help reinstall this particular game.

if that doesn't help;
run DDU in Safe Mode and remove all graphics related data from the system.
then reinstall the latest available DCH driver package directly from Nvidia.

if that also didn't help;
totally wipe the OS drive and reinstall a fresh up-to-date Windows installer package.
then reinstall all of the latest drivers for your motherboard directly from the motherboard manufacturer's product support downloads section,
reinstall the latest GPU drivers,
and reinstall the game in question.

if none of those options helped you have some failing hardware that will need to be identified and replaced.
