OS Version: Microsoft Windows 10 Home, 64 bit
Processor: Intel® Core™ i5-7500 CPU @ 3.40GHz, Intel64 Family 6 Model 158 Stepping 9
Processor Count: 4
RAM: 16343 Mb
Graphics Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 1080, -1 Mb
Hard Drives: C: 488 GB (200 GB Free);
Motherboard: MSI, B250 PC MATE (MS-7A72)
Antivirus: Windows Defender, Enabled and Updated

So I had just built this computer say 3 months ago an ran it for a couple weeks and it was great all games and everything were running smooth on high settings. Then I had to put it in storage for a couple months in a completely dry safe place. But now that I've taken it out and plugged everything back in it seems to be very bad. I can barely play some games on low settings that I could of played on very high before... Also it seems to be louder, I have opened it up and made sure that everything hadn't came loose so its not that. The HDMI is plugged into my GPU.
