Frame Rate drops but not caused by the GPU

Lately my pc has been experiencing massive frame rate studdering between 90-30 fps on Overwatch and Fortnight. I Used to run at a stable 80 fps on both.

Specs: Mother Board MSI Z87-G41 CPU Core i5 4670k GPU AMD Raedon R9 290 Ram 2 Adata ad3u1600w 4g11-b Samsun 250 GB SSD Toshiba 1TB HDD Power Supply Apevia ATX-AP800W

All of my games are installed on my new SSD. My first thought was the 4 year old HDD. But the move to the SSD didn't fix the issue. I swapped the R9 290 for 1060 and installed the nvidia drivers but i had the same problem. I noticed that is used to use around 1400MBs of VRAM when playing Overwatch. Now i am only able to use about 500MB. Would this be a power supply issue or maybe ram? Im not sure what to try next. Any Help would be appreciated.

Thanks

PS I am also using Windows 7 with updated AMD drivers

Download and run OCCT and monitor your cpu temps, could be thermal throttling of the CPU.

What drive is your OS on? There may be some background processes on that drive therefore causing a slow down of the whole system
