What games are you having issues with? Nothing jumps out as bad. Have you tried tweaking the settings of the game? Often minor tweaks can yield very good results. Outside of that have you checked your temps, maybe your getting to hot? You can use a program like Speccy to see if that is the issue. I know it's probably not, but never hurts to check. Try running some benchmarks too see if anything jumps out.

given the spec, as above double check there's no actual part issue, but it could be as simple as background applications running whilst gaming affecting the performance.
