Before I mention the problem here are my specs


Graphics Card Manufacturer - Powered by AMD

Graphics Chipset - AMD Radeon ™ R9 390 Series
Bus Type - PCI Express 3.0
Current Bus Settings - PCI Express 3.0 x16
Memory Size - 8192 MB
Memory Type - GDDR5
Memory Clock - 1500 MHz
Core Clock - 1050 MHz
Total Memory Bandwidth - 384 GByte/s
Memory Bit Rate - 6.00 Gbps
2D Driver File Path - /REGISTRY/MACHINE/SYSTEM/ControlSet001/Control/Class/{4d36e968-e325-11ce-
I also attached some pictures from the CPUID HWMonitor app, I was playing Elder Scrolls Online while the app was running. (im looking at the GPU utilization and its just hopping all over the place its either stuck at 0% or jumping around a bleepton)
So basically what happened with my computer was I moved it to my tv so i could play dragon age and lie in my bed, the next morning i move my computer back to my Monitor where it usually is and everything is fine until i begin to play it later, i get on Elder Scrolls online and everything is fine until i get to the character screen and the fps drops to about 40fps where it usually stays at 60, ok thats fine i can live with 40fps right? Well i could  it wasnt for the fact that as soon as i log into the game the fps drops to what is about an average of 12 fps... which is completely unplayable... its not just elder scrolls online its dragon age origins, dragon age 2 and neverwinter nights...
I've checked all of the cables in the back theyre all in the right spots connected to the video card and not the motherboard so thats not the issue...
So yeah... can anyone help me with this? I've been trying different things for the past few days and im worried because ive tried everything i can think of...

My only guesses would be Internet traffic and possibly the weather. If clear skys and a change in the time you are trying to play don't help I at a loss to suggest more
