I used to have this monitor. It has no adaptive sync at all. That wouldn't be helping; having some kind of adaptive sync helps to minimize tearing/stuttering.
Go into Nvidia Control Panel > Manage 3D Settings > Vertical Sync. Select Adaptive(half refresh rate). It might not stop it, but if it happens less often, that'd be a plus.

so you guys think it could be the SSD with the operating system? It overheats some times, but why would it cause stutters on games that are on a different SSD?
 
No, my settings are on low-medium. Same goes for Fortnite, my monitor is an ASUS VG248QE. I don't have G Sync.

Also I am noticing stutters on desktop use aswell, every now and then.
Make sure the nVidia control panel and Windows advanced monitor setting are both showing 144hz. Try setting a 144fps frame cap in the nvidia control panel and set vsync to always off.

Have you tried a new monitor cable ? If you're running HDMI have you tried DisplayPort and vice versa ?

I have an update guys, I got a fresh installation of Windows on an m.2 and desktop stutters are gone.

BUT the gaming FPS drops are still there tho, a bit better but still there. There is a setting in war zone that shows the time that took the GPU and CPU to render a frame and I noticed something. GPU doesn’t go above 8 on clash (small map with 100 people) and is mostly stable on 6.
On the other hand CPU time is around 11 - 12, and when the drops happen it even goes to 18-20 but the GPU time is still stable. So, I’m guessing it’s a CPU related problem but it doesn’t overheat…
What could cause that?

ps. thanks for all the replies and trying to help I really appreciate it <3

Software. The game engine is an un-optimized mess, and support isn't going to improve. EA has more or less killed off support, because they moved 'em to Cold War.
When Vanguard comes out, they'll slowly move support away from Cold War to it.

installed the latest amd chipset driver before the gpu driver after fresh install?

Aha, I see. Thing is I noticed similar drops on Fortnite too. I don’t know what to make of it. :/

also I tried msi afterburner only to monitor the frame rate and the graph actually wouldn’t show the drops that I saw on the in game frame rate if that means something.

Yes I did friend.

That would be real hard to figure out with Fortnite, due to how big that game is.
There's so many players on a map at a time, it's chaotic, the game is updated regularly(usually cosmetic).

The game's polling rate is faster than Afterburners?
 
I'm not saying your 2600 is defective but there's no doubt moving to a 5600x cpu will make a big improvement in your 1% lows (minimum fps in game) since there's a large IPC improvement, clock speed increase, as well as a lot more cpu cache on the 5600x. I see on the support page for your board that even though it's a 470 they have BIOS support for the 5600x listed. If you have the ability to purchase one I'd recommend you go that route.

Ever looked at this? Although it is really for COD MW/Warzone ....

maybe this goes for other games you play too.
Yes mate I have already done that, I got a slight boost tbh thanks tho!

Makes sense, I will see that as a future solution. For now I'm out of budget. Thing is I talked with a friend and he gave me some good advice and since I'm on a stock cooler I was thinking of getting a coolermaster hyper 212 to push up the clocks a bit.
That'd definitely help right?

Thank you all again for the help, idk who to mark as solution. D:

Did you btw try to give the windows drive a cooler placement? Just to see if it helps.
I got an m.2 now and it improved things a lot, now it doesn’t spike so hard n <Mod Edit> so it’s all good. Just low 1%. That’s why I was thinking to push the clocks a bit.

After the bios update did you enable XMP/DOCP?

Was reading the thread again and saw this, why i asked,

Should have seen that first sentence before, would have saved one question. 😁
