I got a new graphics card 1060 6GB EVGA a few months ago and have seen no fps difference since buying it and I have no idea why

We don't as well. It's a mystery!

Joke aside, if you seriously want us to help, then you should provide much more info than that. You literally have not said anything useful.

List your full system specs. Don't forget make and model of your PSU.
What games are you playing? What resolution? What refresh rate?
Did you use DDU?
Do you have BIOS/chipset/windows/GPU drivers updated?
How are your temps of GPU and CPU idle and while gaming?

Although you answered like HALF of what I asked, the things you answered are not answered properly.
Corsair 100W PSU
Open the case and take a look. I don't think that 100W is the real output, so you must have mistaken it.

CS:GO 1024x768
In that resolution you are CPU bound. Not even the 9900k would help. That you might also have, since you did not mentioned anything about specs.

With 100W PSU your computer will not even start up with just the CPU installed lol
I'm pretty sure it's a typo and they meant 1000w...

...

I agree with the first sentence.
The second one, not so much. Because their previous gpu was an old GTX 660, I'm assuming their current cpu is likely equally as old. As such, a move to a 9900K likely would've seen a greater result over the 660 to 1060.
CS:GO was never very big on gpu resources; it can run over 100fps on a potato gpu like the GT 1030 on low.

I meant to say that even a 9900k would still be a bottleneck in that resolution and the game would be still CPU bound, not that it won't be an improvement. Wrong phrasing, my bad.
