A little bit about myself, so you can know that yes, I've tried the basics, I'm an IT security specialist, I've been working in IT for a while, I'm A+, Server+, ITF+, and a bunch of other types of certified (only mentioning this so you know I'm not clueless), but this has been bothering me for over a year now. I'd love to hear what you guys might think. I've posted this in numerous places (Reddit, here, forums) and have never been able to solve this. I'm this close to abandoning AMD. This is my 3rd time posting about this on here - my other posts were largely ignored.
So, I've been dealing with stuttering in games like Jedi: Fallen Order, Night of the Dead, Desolate, and all kinds of other games for over a year. I've lost count of how many times I've reinstalled windows of this, upgraded my bios, upgraded/changed parts, changed outlets, changed PSUs, changed RAM, and recently I finally changed back to Intel from AMD and I still have the problem. So about around a year ago, I upgraded from a Vega 56 to a 5700XT. I started having issues immediately. I posted on AMD and the response was generally "oh the drivers are just s*** right now, just wait", so I did. A few months later, still no fix. Since then I have tried everything imaginable to fix this - 3 different PSUs (up to 900 Watts), 3 different sets of RAM, 3 different processors, 2 different motherboards, different wall sockets, different monitors, different BIOS settings, software changes, regedits and literally anything I could find on the internet. When I started having this problem, my build was a Ryzen 7 2700X, 5700XT, and 32 GB oLOY 3600 MHz RAM w/ 750 W Thermaltake PSU and Gigabyte DS3H Mobo. I then upgraded to a Ryzen 7 3700x and Asus ROG Strix B450-F Gaming board w/ Corsair Vengeance 3200 MHz RAM w/ 750 W Cooler Master PSU. Still Stutters. So I said f*** it. I bought an Intel i5 10600K on Prime day hoping it'd fix the problem. I installed everything, nuked every drive I have completely clean, and installed windows. Still stutters. I even installed Windows 11 hoping it'd fix this. I even tried liquid cooling my 5700XT before I ended up upgrading it to a 6700XT. The 6700 XT performs no better than the 5700XT in my case. The only thing that made the issue better was playing on a 2070. I haven't been able to enjoy gaming since I bought the 5700 XT. It's been over a year and with the market the way it is, I'm pretty much screwed on getting a new GPU.
Basically, I notice the issue a lot in games when there is fast movement or anything of the sort. It kind of seems like it just misses 2 or 3 frames sometimes. It kind of hangs for just a millisecond and then continues, but it does it like every 15 seconds (it's really bad in Call of Duty and Apex Legends). I guess I'm hoping one of you guys knows something I don't. Maybe you heard about something strange you have to do for the 6700XT to work right. I'll list my current configuration below and maybe you might know better than I do. This is basically just a hail mary, guys. I've pretty much given up on this but this is my last try before I just give up on AMD completely.
Here is my current config. If you would like to know the list of parts I have tried, I can provide that, but pretty much the common factor is an AMD GPU = poor performance.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
