I just bought a computer off of Craigslist and it's running games fairly slow. CS:GO maxed out at 118 FPS, when it should get near 300 easily (not that I need that). Everything came with receipts and boxes, and was put together less than 6 months ago. Drivers are up-to-date and so is the OS. I've tried optimizing the games themselves but nothing seems to make it better. Ideas?

AMD FX-8370 4.0 GHz CPU
970A Gaming Pro Carbon MSI MOBO
Radeon RX 480 4GB` Gaming X Twin Frozr GPU
16GB Corsair Vengeance 2400 MHz RAM
Thermaltake 700W Smart PSU
3 1-TB HDDs
Running windows 10 64-bit

This is for Windows 7, I dont have Windows 10 so I dont know what options show, but hopefully its similar :p

Open task manager > performance > resource monitor > Memory Tab and click Working set, whichever is at top is the one hogging the performance

Make sure your PC is clean of dust, dog hairs or whatever ect. This can effect a components performance if there is a build up.
