In the past few months I realized something was wrong with my gameplay. Which then was noticed that a lot of graphic intense games such as Rainbow six siege, Arma III, player unkown battleground and a lot more, have freezes (FPS drops).
I have tried a lot of things such as installing the MSI gaming app, updating drivers, checking faulty RAM, decreasing space on my hard drive, running malware and antivirus scans, looked up tutorials online on how to get the best optimisation for nvidia control panel and reinstalled my graphic drivers using DDU and installing them manually.
I'm tired and want to get to the bottom of this. If it includes any upgrades then so be it. I just want all my games playable.
Thank you guys so much in advance!

I use a program called 'Custom Resolution Utility' for a custom resolution for my computer (1920 x 1080) if that causes anything. https://www.monitortests.com/forum/Thread-Custom-Resolu I use this because the resolution is stuck on a low resolution with 'Generic non pnp'. Therefore this program helps. I also use two screens and I use a HDMI to see if it fixed the issue however hasnt.
My monitor however still states 'Generic Non-PnP Monitor (1920x1080@60Hz)' which could be the issue?
