Hi,
recently I started noticing that my games started lagging (see

) even though I have high fps (50-60). This happens even when I try lowering graphical settings (uninstalling high demanding mods in skyrim). The weird thing is, that it didn't happen like a year ago (I had to study so I didn't have time for gaming).
I tried setting up a fps limiter but the stuttering stopped only when I set it to 25 fps. I also tried changing my DisplayPort cable but that didn't help at all.
The question is - could this be caused by my GPU (it's 3,5 years old) or is this a software issue?

My setup
CPU - Ryzen 1600
GPU -AMD RX480 8GB (3,5 years old)
16GB RAM
MB - MSI B350 MATE
Two SSDs - M.2 240GB for Windows and 240 GB for Games
HDD 1000GB
Monitor - 60Hz 1080p
PSU - Seasonic 620W (3 years old)
