Hi, I recently finished building my computer and encountered a problem potentially regarding the graphics card or anything that might be a cause for this.


The problem consists of frames fluctuating in games, going from 180 down to 15-20 and then going back up to around 200... constantly. Although I am not too experienced with stronger faster computers, I do believe that when I move a window(at a reasonable speed) on my desktop or in general somewhere on my screen, the window should not necessarily leave traces of it being moved. The traces only last about 1 second but this shouldn't be happening. 


In all honesty i am not 100% sure where this problem could be coming from, but I would greatly appreciate some assistance to fix this somehow.


My computer's main details include:

-Intel Core i7-4790K 4.0GHz Quad-Core Processor

-MSI Z97-G45 Gaming ATX LGA1150 Motherboard

-Corsair Vengeance Pro 16GB (2 x 8GB) DDR3-1866 Memory

-Samsung 850 Pro Series 256GB 2.5" Solid State Drive

-Seagate Barracuda 2TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive

-MSI GeForce GTX 970 4GB Twin Frozr V Video Card

-NZXT Phantom (White) ATX Full Tower Case

-Corsair CX 750W 80+ Bronze Certified Semi-Modular ATX Power Supply

-Asus DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS DVD/CD Writer

P.S. If I posted this in the wrong section, i'm very sorry and it might be due to the fact that I am very new to this forum. Sorry for the inconvenience.
