I don't know why I'm getting lag spikes but when i'm playing league of legends I get an avg of 170fps and I sometimes get lag spikes, I reset my computer twice but i still get it. Even when I try to play Warzone I can't play without crashing. any ideas on why?

You haven't provided much info to go on, though you appear to be incurring multiple issues.
1)Single stick of ram? That's a no-no in today's games.

2)PC is clean of viruses/malware?
Adwcleaner is a nice free tool: https://www.malwarebytes.com/adwcleaner/

3)Cpu and gpu are thermal throttling?
Check cpu cooler mount and whether the fan(s) works. If the gpu overheats regardless of removing the case's front and side panels, then a gpu repaste job is likely needed.

4)Corrupt Windows files? You can check by following the steps here: https://support.microsoft.com/en-us/help/4026529/windows-10-using-system-file-checker

5)Running outdated motherboard drivers? Then update the motherboard drivers.

6)Failed to do clean installs of the gpu drivers? Do clean installs of the gpu drivers with Display Driver Uninstaller: https://www.wagnardsoft.com/
Install the gpu driver afterwards.

7)Make and model of the power supply?

8)Due to the... 'human malware', game servers are experiencing heavier loads than usual. This may put a damper on your online game experiences.
