Which games specifically are you playing. Games have become a lot more demanding in a short period of time and a lot of people are finding their quad core CPU's struggling. What resolution are you playing at? The lower the resolution the more stress is going to be put on the CPU.

With 100% CPU usage there's not much you can do besides checking for malware and closing applications that don't need to be on while gaming. Next thing would be upgrading the CPU.
Everything is close except the uncloseable syster tasks I tried putting my power management to performance and everything I can to performance but didn't do anything, what cpu will you recommend me getting with those specs that won't be a bottleneck?
 
All you can do is make sure as few programs are running in the background and/or upgrade cpu. Quad core CPU’s struggle in modern cpu heavy games so if this is the type of game you are trying to play this is to be expected.

Try doing a full scan with Malwarebytes before considering a upgrade. Malware can utilize your CPU and cause these performance issues.

Also many of those games are older and wouldn't require more then 4 cores.

Thanks dude will try doing a scan and see the performance then

Do the virus/malware scan as Wildcard said. If that all checks out you can do a re-install of Windows. If there are any viruses or malware hidden in there nuking the OS and re-installing it will kill it. If all that checks out and you are still having a problem I'd upgrade to a 6 core 6 thread Coffee Lake I5.

I dont know if thisll help as i had this problem with a ryzen first gen (2400g). IK im using the intergrated graphics so i should be getting decent FPS on low to medium quality but my FPS was not even close to what i should be getting, IK this because of online benchmarks. I thought it was the CPU itself or I had unstable clocks, but the issue was actually my RAM. I swapped RAM sticks and got significantly higher FPS (and lower CPU usage). Dont know if thisll help but it worked for me

I dont know what to say about intel, but as ryzen 1st performance really does matter by RAM i swapped it and found that 1 ram stick was physically damaged (didnt know it was). I replaced that stick and PC performed as it shouldve. Do what everyone else is saying first, and if nothing works then maybe physically see if RAM could be damaged in any sort of way.

There's not as much of an impact with Intel as there is with Ryzen, plus considering the OP has 16gb of memory it's not really the issue here as I'm pretty sure it's software related.

Did a full scan of Malwarebytes find anything?

Also, thinking about, could it be that the 1660 is actually disabled in either BIOS, games or even windows? IK that there is a way to disable the IGPU in my BIOS, maybe you would have to do the same to yours and do something else
