Hi, I am an h1z1 streamer and player. I usually play and stream with around 100 fps with an i5-6500 and a gtx 1060 sc 6gb. Out of nowwhere the otherday, i realized i was getting 30-60 fps when playing and not even streaming. Is my graphics card dying? Do i need to get a new cpu? what should i do?

Doubt your card is dying. I've never played the game, but I've seen people with this same type of question about it. If no one has a solution here, I bet you can just google it and look around. All you can check your graphics card and cpu to see if they are running at 100%.

H1Z1 has terrible optimization. Other factors may include viruses using CPU and GPU.

Run a virus scan with your software of choice, then try again.

I've noticed that the longer I play Arma 3 (the longer the game is running) my frame rate can drop. I'm used to getting 70-80FPS at 4K and on some maps if I'm playing for 4 hours at a time it can and will drop to the 20s.

I did a windows defender full scan and i have no viruses. Its just that an i5-6500 with a gtx 1060 sc 6 gb should not be 30 fps when i usually get 100

Install Windows and fresh drivers to a spare HDD or something. A PNY CS900 120GB SSD is only 25 bucks.

Some times Windows will interfere, stuff like Windows Defender mucking things up, using CPU power randomly, or just a rogue Windows process doing its own thing.

Windows defender is also complete and utter filthy trash for virus detection. Use Malwarebytes Free or Hitman Pro.

But I don't think your 1060 is dying. Pascal is nearly invincible.
