Hey, thanks in advance for helping.

So i recently bought a prebuilt hp gaming desktop, these are the specs: 1660super, Ryzen 5 4600G, 256pny ssd for windows and boot, 8gb 3200mhz that i upgraded to 16gb 3200mhz (2133mhz cause the motherboard does not have overclock option).

So the issue is, im getting low gpu usage in some games, causing low fps, and in some games it runs fine but it uses low gpu, and i could use the extra fps.
On PUBG for example, the gpu is most times at 90-100%, and cpu at 30-50%~, with 80+fps most times.
On CSGO i get around 200-250fps, gpu at 40%~, cpu even less %.
On Rust, i get really bad fps, around 40-50 (fps can go up, fps is not locked, vsync off) no matter what settings the fps is the same kinda, gpu is only at 40%~ in this game with very bad fps, cpu is at 20%~ too, but it uses like 9gb ram.
On Minecraft singleplayer 1.16.5 shaders: 95fps, 50-60% gpu usage, 20-40% cpu usage. Why does it not use 100%gpu? On multiplayer it varies, 30%gpu use 10-20%~ cpu use, like 40 or 50 fps, it does not use more gpu power.

I just want to get the best out of my pc.

Remove the new ram.
Boot the machine and go to task manager/memory.
What ram speed does it show?

How many sticks of ram are we talking about here?
You started with 2x4GB and then you did what?.....draw a picture.
Tell the make and model of this pc.
The motherboard has 2 ram slots, the default ram sticks were 2x4gb at 3200mhz, then i upgraded to 2x8gb at 3200mhz but only 2133mhz is showing up because the motherboard has no xmp options in bios.

Remove the new ram and install the old ram.
What speed and amount shows in task manager/memory.
What is the make and model of the pc?
