Well my ssd has 251 GB of free space and it is still running terribly. I have the latest drivers installed, the drive is connected to a sata 3.0 port by a 6gb/s cable. And my graphics card is also running terribly with really low usage for Gta and roblox (lol) but for some other titles including Userbenchmark it goes up to 80-100% usage still with terrible results. I've checked the thermals and under heavy load it won't get above 70 degrees. I have also tried to oc the gpu but it gives the same or WORSE performance. Could it be that the gpu is being bottlenecked by my cpu? (note) i've reinstalled the drivers many times without effects. Please help me to fix this issue :)
 
it very well could be a CPU bottleneck, if your OC'ing your 2070 and the score isnt showing any improvements then the CPU is holding you back.

Have you tried to OC your cpu at all? i would bench the GPU at stock to get a base number and then do a small OC on the CPU and see if you get a better score. If it does then you know the CPU is holding you back.

crank up ingame/Nv panel settings, this will shift load to the gpu (not that the cpu is an issue outside high fps gaming).
did you clean the system before installing the drivers (new/same)?
leftovers can easily affect performance.

uninstall all Nv software/driver, everything.
reboot into safe mode and use the DDU uninstaller (check settings and mark all boxes for NV etc),
use the clean/shutdown option.
boot it back up, and install the latest Nv driver 431.68 IN CUSTOM mode,
select the box for clean install and only select to install the driver/physic,
not the geforce experience or HD audio, reboot.
change power from optimal to adaptive (main profile) and run a synthetic benchmark like 3Dmark firestrike/time spy, and compare the numbers with results on review sites.

Well now i have used ddu and clean installed on geforce experience and the performance is still shit :(

For the GPU, run Roblox in Windowed mode and run GPU-Z or something similar on the side. See if it's actually using your GPU (clock speed at gaming mode, temps and utilization up).

For the SSD, it's a cheap unit with average performance (for an SSD). I think Kingston's are fine for an average system (and still worlds better than hard drives), but if you want a benchmark to give you better number, you are doing to have to pay up for a Samsung.

Well I found a graphic intensive game (https://www.roblox.com/games/1625252284/Shiguto-Offices#!/game-instances )and here are my results: View: https://imgur.com/j0yhprI


30% of usage ram, gpu and cpu

I am planning to overclock my cpu, unfortunatley i have the wraith stealth to cool the cpu. Overclocking with that gets real toasty!

an ssd will not improve fps, load times yes, but that money is better invested in a good cpu cooler.
at 1080p and above, you shouldnt really have a cpu prob.
crank up in game settings towards quality, or use dsr, and render at a higher res,
e.g. 1440p or 2160p which should be a prob with your card.
if that doesnt do anything, i recommend clean install, than you know if its that, or HW.

Do you suggest overclocking the cpu? I have a 144hz 1440p 16:9 monitor

at 1440p usually load shifts to gpu, but going past 75-90hz will still need a powerful cpu.

you could drop fps a bit, but seeing that you have a decent setup, i expect it to be os/driver related, so depending how much stuff you have to backup etc, i would start with that.
if theres still a problem after that you k ow its HW related.
