THE GREAT MANBABY SUCCESSOR

Inexplicable poor performance for graphics intensive games: Last year I built my first gaming PC and incorporated a friend's old Radeon as my GPU. I installed DOOM and The Witcher 3, and both ran perfectly fine on medium/high. A few months ago I fired up DOOM and got severe performance issues, for some reason now DOOM doesn't even launch but that's beside the point. I woke up this mroning and went to play The Witcher and I got the same performance issues. I tried Kerbal had the same problems.

Attempted fixes: I wiped my AMD drivers and performed a clean install. I switched my HDMI cable output to the GPU itself although I've been running the HDMI off of my motherboard until today. Switching it to the GPU seems to solve the problem. I've been running it off of the motherboard for so long though that it doesn't quite make sense that this would happen now and I wonder if there's something going on between the Intel HD graphics and the GPU.

Recent changes: Added an old surround sound system this morning, unplugged all my components for organization.
