Depends on the games you play, ssd won't get you more fps, but it may load some textures faster, while ram will be useful only if your games are using more then you have.

basically the games i play are LoL Fortnite Rainbow6 Pubg

SSD will basically speed up ANYTHING that you do with the system - Windows loading times, app responsiveness, game load times, etc.

If you're running out of RAM while in game, and the computer starts paging out to the swap file while trying to load new textures, etc, that may cause stutters. Generally, 8 GB is enough for gaming if you close background stuff.

Unless your HDD is dying I don't think a SSD is going to help with FPS dips. If it was texture pop ins then a SSD may help.
