I don't know why and how but my pc was running good few months ago but now my GPU is performing bad. It lags in every game (without any background tasks on) and if I turn on the background apps (like discord), it starts to give me 30-60 fps.

Specs:
I5-2400
12GB RAM (8+4)
ASUS H61 MOTHERBOARD
AMD RX 560
1.320 TB HDD
 
your CPU is throttling, reapply thermal paste between CPU and cooler

check your HDDs with seatools for errors

check the memory by running memtest.org usb autoinstaller (bootable USB flash drive)

check windows integrity
open the command prompt as administrator and type DISM /Online /Cleanup-Image /RestoreHealth
