Hmmmm, Well, you have a pretty good gaming PC, however you have hobbled it with 8gbs of ram. What are the ram modules, can you link them?

Is it 1 x 8gb stick or 2 x 4gb sticks? Either way for that system, 8gbs sucks for gaming at high res.

At 1080p most new games use upwards of 8gbs system ram. If your ram is slow, lets say 2400mhz, that will slow your PC down. It can butcher frame rates. As can having only 8gbs system ram. Once your ram fills up it uses the virtual mem, and that kills FPS.

Use Task Manager and Resource Monitor (one at time) to observe system performance while first not gaming and then while gaming.

Look for some resource bottleneck or some other app grabbing and holding a particular resource.

And there we might have the problem. You are running single channel RAM and expect your cpu to put up high fps. You get double the bandwidth if you use two sticks in dual channel. I would get a 2x8 ddr 4 kit while they are cheap.
