I got my PC around 4 months ago, and for a while I was able to run most games on high settings with ease. As of a week ago, Fortnite began to play very choppy, and I was experiencing hard frame drops every few seconds. I uninstalled a few things and it was a temporary fix and now it's happening again and I'm feeling frustrated. Now, the issue has spread to other games and I don't know what to do. What's more, my Discord app keeps making me come across as if I am lagging and I have to use the web app because the actual application is unusable for me. Do I need to upgrade my CPU?
 
Hi KEVIN (y) and Welcome to the Forum :)

As with many multiplayer games sudden drops as you explained can be due to your internet connection.
Check your ISP is delivering what you are paying for?
Conduct a speedtest from your browser.
Ping the game server for packet loss.
