My system specs are below. I can not figure out why I have poor performance. In GW2 I average 25 fps, Far Cry 3 about 25-30 FPS. Other demanding games are similar. I downloaded GPU-Z and my card is running @16x 2.0. I reseated the card, and the same thing. Could it be dying? Any tips or things anyone can advise me on? Games like League of Legends run at 60 FPS but I do have some random fps dips(all on max settings). I have defragmented my primary HDD and secondary, cleared out unless files and no luck. I checked my bios and everything on my card is default only my cpu is OC but it's been like that for months way before this issue which is recent.

At first glance it looks like it could be your HDD (C:) . 8Gb of free space is kind of low. Additionally, the read speed of your HDD could be the determining factor in your games running slow. I would recommend upgrading it. If you would like to check your read speed first before upgrading, you could use something like Crystal Disk Mark. Hope this helps.

It's an SSD so it's has fast read and write speeds. This issue happens regardless of capacity. I cleaned it up to 23 GB just to be on the safe side and it's still the same.
