Recently on certain games, playing on 1920x1080 doesnt feel nice and doesn't have that smooth feeling it used to have.

My power supply: 180 watts
Specs: GTX 1050TI, I5-6400, 8GB RAM,75 hz monitor

NVidia recommends 300 watts minimum.
The GPU alone uses 75 watts.
The CPU....65 watts.
plus add your drives and fans and whatever else.
I'm a little surprised you aren't having more problems.
I would definitely replace the PSU.
 
I'm surprised it has lasted this long then.
I'd have serious doubts to ever buying anything from this company again, unless it is you who has already changed the original specs.
Then you should be changing the PSU when you upgraded it.
