I built a PC last christmas and everything was fine up until a week ago. I am now sometimes getting lag spikes whenever i play games. It happens maybe about every 3 mins and can last for 1-10 seconds or sometimes can result in crashing.

CPU: i3-8100
GPU: ZOTAC 1050 TI OC (no i havent tried actually overclocking)
RAM: Corsair Vengeance 2x4GB

Most effective way to determine the problem would be to monitor your CPU & GPU temperatures, perhaps using MSI Afterburner's overlay. Your temperatures might be going really high somehow, causing your CPU or GPU to throttle.

It could also be windows updates updating your drivers such as your video driver which there may be problems with and you might want to roll video drivers back a version or two to a point where you didn’t have the lagging spikes

I have watched temperatures while playing. It mainly happens the most in apex legends where my cpu temp is usually around 66, which i was told isnt dangerously high, and my gpu temp is near around 63 which isnt too high either.

Ill try going back to a previous graphics driver version, and if that doesnt seem to solve the problem i can uninstall it and reinstall them i guess.
