Hi, I could use some help on this. My computer isnt running as it should. I just installed a new mother board, graphics card, and Processor recently and ran very well for a bit, now after a month or so, it's slowed down quite a bit. Playing a game like fallout 4 ran very smoothly at first, now im around 30 average Fps for some reason.
I scanned for viruses, using roguekiller, nothing.
In game, the processor ran at an average of 60% and the GPU never went over 40%. I dont know if these are normal, but they seem like they shouldn't be.
I was thinking of restoring to factory and/or installing a new hard drive. The one im currently using shoots up to 100% ussage a lot and is around six years old I think.
Everything is up to date.

how are your temps while running those games? Also is windows 10 trying to constantly install a cumulative update in background?
if you are unsure you can use a program called HW monitor because excessive heat can cause issues too.
