Question Why is my PC Gaming performance poor?

May 9, 2020
Hello dear Everyone,

I have no idea why games like Apex Legends run with fps drops and such, I did a clean Windows install on my pc but still not smooth image as I expect it. My rig is:

MSI A320M Gaming Pro (will Upgrade to B450M)
AMD Ryzen 5 2600
Sapphire Pulse RX 5600 XT 6GB (new version, no BIOS upgrade needed as far as I know)
2x Kingston Hyper X Fury Predator 8GB x 2 (running on 2933MHz with XMP profile)
1 xM.2 SSD 512GB for games (not sure about the brand but it is not bad)
1x ADATA SU800 256GB 2.5 SSD for System and Programs
1x Samsung 500GB HDD for storage
1x Toshiba 1TB HDD for storage

Using an AOC 144Hz Freesync monitor

Tried to tweak Radeon Settings, but no desired performance, I feel like there are microstutters and inconsistent FPS.
Watching videos how guys play with ~120 FPS with Apex Legends, and atleast 70 with max settings with the same card makes me jealous. I would be happy with a stable 60FPS.

Do you have any idea what is the problem?

Thank you! :)
