i have an rx 480 and ryzen 5 2600. i built the pc a while ago but recently i noticed the decrease in performance when playing fortnite.. i have it set at 120 fps. but for some reason i get a lot of fps drops.. any help is appreciated. the cpu and gpu are both stock and id like them to stay that way. what optimisations can i make to sort the issue

Besides the PSU the memory is problematic. Slow memory speeds not only can affect FPS but dips as well. While I don't know the impact of 2133 to 3200 on Fortnite I did some testing and the difference in Destiny 2 was nearly 20 FPS. On the Division 2 the FPS stayed the same however 2133 resulted in much more FPS dips. Memory issue could be increased further if your using s single stick and not a 2x4gb kit.
