i just recently upgraded my pc. i have a gtx 1060 6Gb and a 500 watt power supply. then the things i changed were:
some stock dell xps 8700 motherboard to a msi mpg z390 gaming edge ac
Intel Core I7-4770 to a I7-9700K (plus a coolermaster hyper 212 evo)
8 GB ddr3 ram to 16Gb DDR4 3200mhz Ram

After doing this upgrade i feel like im getting lower FPS in my games. For example im pretty sure Red Dead Redemption 2 was running at high setting at 60FPS before, But now its just about 50FPS with some lower settings. And Ghost recon breakpoint runs really bad at the same settings as before. Ive googled around but cant find a way to fix this problem. After upgrading to better hardware my games are running at a lower FPS.

Did you do a clean install of Windows after upgrading? If not then more then likely that is your issue as conflicting motherboard drivers will cause poor performance. A reset will not fix, must be a clean install of Windows as well as motherboard & GPU drivers.

You will want to make sure you have either a Windows 10 Key or that it's tied to your Microsoft Account. You can also do Win10 unactivated.

Download the Win10 media tool.
https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/software-download/windows10

Install it to a flash drive.

Boot from the flash drive to start the installation. F10 may be the boot menu during startup but this depends on the system.

Follow the directions further from Clean Install Windows 10.

When you do a clean install you usually do not only the OS but all of the software. Is there enough space on your SSD to try one of your games out with the HDD disconnected? If so do that and let me know how the performance is.

I dont have enough space on my SSD to download any of my games onto it. So what do i need to do with the HDD? wipe the entire thing and reinstall everything? Cause thats alot of work.
