Question SSD Lag

Apr 19, 2020
Due to life circumstances my PC has been stored for the last 10 months in good, clean conditions. Upon my return to gaming I bought 16 more gb of ram and a new SSD to use as my boot drive. I reinstalled windows on the the SSD and i am now using my old HDD for mass storage. Currently every game I play is experiencing a great amount of frame drop and lag. I am running a GTX 1070 and I am losing frames in Rocket league and PUBG will not even load. Most games are crashing as well. The overall system appears to slow and laggy. Does anyone have any tips or previous experience?
