Why is my GTX 980 lagging on games?

Hey guys,

I decided to make this form because I cannot think of why my computer is lagging, and I'm hoping you can help. My friends from discord and other clients have attempted to help me, but I'm getting no clear answer. My computer seems to be running low FPS on a game it once ran high on. It seems to be in a short amount of time my computer went from running games like League of Legends on 200 FPS to around 50-100 FPS I don't understand why this is happening for my parts is pretty good. I don't have much experience in computer, just the basic, any help will be appreciated
My Specs:

Processor: AMDFX(tm)-8320 Eight-Core Processor, 3500Mhz, 4Core(s), 8 Logical Proce...
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 980
Installed Physical Memory: 24.0 GB

And my graphics card does not show up in the system information. I don't know if this means anything or not.

My fan monitor in my case says this:
168w
Fan 1: 1500 rpm, 31 c
Fan 2: 900 - 1000 rpm, 15 c
Please give any feedback...

  1. Is it possible your computer could be doing some work in the background? Like updates? And does the FPS increase again after a while?

  2. Did this happen after a game or driver update? What is your PSU and how old is it?

    I check my task manager everytime my computer turns on, and know it didn't seem to.

  5. You can only check your PSU if you check your PC's specification from the website you got it. On your receipt or if you open the case and read it.
