Question Games maxing out at 100 Percent CPU and im not sure what the problem is

Hello,
Im currently running a windows 10 PC with a GTX 1080 8GB GPU and a 'Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-7600K CPU @ 3.80GHz, 3792 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)' processor, ASUS ROG STRIX Z270E, 64-bit.
Im having the problem where every 30 or so seconds to a minute, games such as Red Dead Redemption 2 freeze for like 5 seconds, and with battlefield V every few seconds for half a second. No matter what graphics i put it on nothing much changes, and its not an FPS problem as it runs perfectly fine on full ultra all games. Also my RAM is 16GB of DDR4. I don't know if the problem is that the CPU is not good enough for the GPU or a RAM issue. The recommended hardware for Red Dead 2 is Intel Core i7-4770K / AMD Ryzen 5 1500X and GTX 1060 6GB and 8GB of DDR4, which im pretty sure is all worse than what i have in all categories.

Any replies for a fix are appreciated, thankyou!

RDD2 tells you right off the bat that it's thread heavy, and not so reliant on ipc/clock speeds. I7-4770k and R5-1500x are both older, slower, lower end 4 core/8 thread cpus. Where the importance is on the threads. Even throwing a somewhat faster i5-7600k into the mix, you are still 4 threads short, and thats going to create backlog.
