  1. What's the rest of your system? Have you made any changes to the system recently?
  2. If you're using a HDD over an SSD could be that.

    How would that cause such a change?

    Well if the header on the platter in the hard drive is faulty then that means that there is going to be some sort of lag on the system since data isn't being read properly, i'll add to my comment that it could also be the memory.

    I got the same specs as you!
    Also have you updated your graphics driver to the newest 2.10.0.66 from Nvidia? If you did, you might want to go back to the previous driver since the newest brought down my games fps and started crashing my programs. After going to the previous they went back to normal.
    Also try defrag the hard drive (usually helps) virus check, and all that.
