Valorant is still a new game, I played it that's normal, what bothers me is the Loading Screen time, it takes 90% load and runs around 75 degrees Celsius, and also when you're on the lobby it takes load on your GPU same with the Loading screen time.

A lot of players are experiencing crashes, random reboots sometime bricking the Computer due to the Vanguard riot has, and they haven't fixed it yet so be wary.

I'm getting from 100 to 200FPS depending on the area or maps, the game is not fully optimized yet.

With system of yours I think there's a little bottleneck but not that big of a difference.

My system is:
AMD Ryzen 7 1700
MSI B350m Mortar Tomahawk
Corsair Vengeance 16gb (8x2)
Galax GTX 1060 6gb OC
Ramsta S680 120gb SSD
Toshiba HDD 2TB
PSU Corsair CX650m
