My fps counter shows high fps, but games still stutter

Hi

I built my pc for the first time, and i don't know what i have messed up but if anyone could help me that would be nice. Games lag even though the fps counter shows that i have high fps

Now i have the following specs:

Gtx 1070 strix
i5-6600k (cooled by a lepa aquachanger 240)
16gb G.skill ripjaws ddr4-3000
Asus Z170-P Intel Z170 So.1151 Dual Channel
256GB Samsung SSD
650 Watt Corsair VS Series VS650 Non-Modular
1000GB WD Blue

The problem that i have is that even with these specs, games like HITMAN for example, and a lot of others, stutter, even though i have downloaded the latest gpu drivers and have tried lowering the settings from what Geforce experience suggests. I have no clue what i should do is there something that should be done in the bios or something? i have no clue why this happens even though these specs are often more than enough for most of the games. Please help!

  3. What monitor are you using? I thing that your GPU's FPS is not syncing well with the displays FPS/Mhz, or vice versa. Sometimes on monitors refresh rate and response time don't add up or mix well. Also Have you check the temperature of the GPU?

    I ran a benchmark test in HITMAN with everything on to the max and the fps stayed over 60 all the time, and i had msi afterburner on aswell and it showed that the gpu temperature was around 55c and cpu temps were 34-42, aren't those normal temperatures?

    Do you only have the stutter playing online or also offline?

    Oh, I thought maybe it was your ping, but as it also happens with offline games, I wouldn't know.

    Yes those temperatures are pretty normal

  13. After all this troubleshooting, It seems like your video card is bad. You could RMA (if is under warranty) or just get a new card.
