Hi so I've had this computer here: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B012OU73US/ref=oh_aui_detailpage_o04_s00?ie=UTF8&psc=1

for about 2  years now I've cleaned out and such so nothing there wrong but from what I've noticed when trying to play Shadow of The Tomb Raider I get constant lag spikes where my game drops from 70 fps to 18 or 30 which actually freezes the game for a second and is annoying. I went to Canyourunit.com and they told me that my graphics card is out of date to run the game on recommended specs as well as Assassin's Creed Origins always notified me that my graphics card wasn't good enough to play it yet I had no issues. So do I buy a new one or what?

it could be :

-Heat issue check temps while in game it might be underclocking because of heat

-Driver issue (uninstall using Display Driver Uninstaller and then reinstall)

-PSU issue (if you have an extra PSU or u can borrow one i highly recommend testing PSU)

Have you tried lowering the graphics settings? Are those lag spikes in intense areas? Have you checked performance monitor for something that hogs cpu/disk?
