okay, so my problem is whenever I play a game the game stutters, also windows stutters, inputs, and video like youtube etc. I'll try to put as much detail as possible

so for example whenever I play destiny 2 the game goes from 60fps to 12 for a split second. max I've seen is two seconds of freeze/Lag then the game speed up again and whatever input I put in those 2 seconds will happen. so I'm in a 1v1 shooting my enemy then the game suddenly drops from 60 to 12 for 1-2 seconds then stop freezing/stuttering goes from 12 fps to 60fps again this happens a lot. even currently as I type so let's say I'm typing "windows" I would type "win" but it doesn't visually register until like a second or two so this stuttering or input lag happens while in windows idle as well. when watching videos it happens as well. people told me it a ram issue so I upgraded from 1 stick of 8gb 24000mhz to 3000mhz 2 x 8gb 16gbddr4. I updated Amd b450 am4 chipset nothing. I've run standby ram program that clean my standby ram because some people say that is a fix and it did help a little but it still happens I've clean installed my windows and it still happens. I've also suggested the hard drive could be at fault but I use an SSD for my OS so my windows OS shouldn't be affected by 2nd drive, right?
I don't what this is but it's like my whole pc freezes/stutters/lags for 2 seconds in general.

I've been searching for solutions for months and still no solution. I need help and I would much appreciate it if someone helped.

thanks in advance

I already did a fresh install I've read that it could be a SATA cable problem gonna check later and see if I can find a had that works to eliminate the possibility of being a hhd issue

okay, update,
I didn't get a new hard drive I've installed windows into my HDD and for some reason, it froze so I then clean installed it back to SSD a couple of things I should mention my HDD was read as SSD by windows disk fragment program (I forgot the name of it). let's assume that was also part of the problem. so I have this clean install, windows set to default normal wallpaper background (this is important). finally, my games and windows as a whole were running better, no stutters at all. The stutter or freeze, the lag was gone after installing 3 fans for cooling, upgrading ram speed and capacity, and a clean install. I was downloading and pick wallpapers. So, I always used windows slide show, because I like a lot of different wallpaper designs. And, the stuttering was back interesting, right? so, I notice if I put windows slide show to change every minute the game & windows would stutter. I've set the slideshow to 5 minutes, 10, etc. That when the pc would stutter. so, with this evidence I believe the cause of my stutter and lag was because of windows slide show I have it off and I have no more stutters/lag/freeze. did anyone know about this?
