Is my CPU faulty, or are my parts bottle-necking?

Hey guys so I am a first time builder. I have an issue where games are not performing the way I think they should be. Even though I do get a lot of fps (around 120+), the games like modern warfare, fortnite etc. do not feel smooth. Also when I aim in it feels like the cursor is stuttery when I make small and steady adjustments.

I play on a 60hz 1080 monitor and tried to lock the fps to many different caps to see how it effects things (ex 60,80,120,unlimited), they all feel different when playing games but none of them feel smooth/ the way I think they should.

I am basically asking for your opinion/advice of how to check if this a hardware issue, a monitor issue, or maybe a software or settings issue.

Lastly, my parts are

CPU: Ryzen 5 3600 Motherboard: MSI MPG x570 Gaming Edge WIFI GPU: Nvidia Geforce RTX 2070 Super SSD: Samsung 970 EVO M.2 NVMe Memory: Corsair Vengance LPX 2x8GB DDR4 DRAM 3200

Here are the link to my latest benchmark: [url]https://www.userbenchmark.com/UserRun/22052734[/url] I have ran CINEBENCH and it looks like my CPU is underperforming. I am getting a scores like 3056, 2978.

Please advise if it is possible that my parts are bottle-necked or how I can check if I really do have a faulty part. Let me know if I can provide more info.

I highly recommend one of the points morgan123 mentioned, namely the best settings for each game.

For example, I have a little PC I game on that for the only PC game I have installed runs at 25 fps with the default game settings, and at 80 fps with the game settings tweaked.
