It's certainly possible, for any number of reasons including thermals, drivers, windows updates, new software, changes to game settings (including involuntary ones caused by software like Geforce Experience). Software/configuration issues are more likely than hardware faults.

Could you post the full spec of your PC?

What components were part of the upgrade and what was in place before?

Always a good idea to rule out thermals. Download something like MSI Afterburner, HWinfo, or Realtemp, and monitor the CPU and GPU temperatures and frequencies when under gaming load, especially - both when the gaming is fine and when you get the bad stutter?

What are the exact problems that you have? Framerate is lower? Or generally the same, but with more spiky drops? In what games? Or not in games?

I also did forget to mention that I noticed the lower performance started when I left my pc to go eat and I came back and I was on the login screen,I believe this was a windows update.

What should normal gaming temps be?Also would thermals be considered a issue, this is because the pc had good performance when I first upgraded it.

The problems I have is that the frame rate is lower, more stutters, ive Noticed less performance in every game,and in other programs like discord I’ve seen stutters

That depends on a lot of things. it's easier to say when temps are too high.

Run DDU

and perform a clean install of the latest Nvidia drivers.

If you get no joy, do the things mentioned above and let us know.

It's always worrisome when specifics are left out when listing the most important part of the PC. If you have a junky power supply in there, then remedying that situation is the more urgent matter.

There's a reason that when the mechanic fixes your car's acceleration problems, they also check the brakes for wear.
600watt Evga bronze 80+ I believe

It's warm but not crazy, depending what CPU cooler.

There are a lot of suggestions of things you can try above that you're not trying so it's hard to suggest more things in the meantime tbh
