Is this cause my power supply?
It's recommended to have a 400w +
Also my processor is only at like 70-80% use

What happens if it doesn't
Just like everyone said Change your PSU ASAP or else your gonna fry something in your computer hardware eventually. I would suggest you just to take 550ti out until you buy a new PSU and it should be at least 450w from a quality manufacturers like Corsair, Cooler Master, Antec, XFX etc.

hmmm im not sure about if PSU has to do something with bad fps like not providing the accurate power to the GPU but anything could happen..

But let us know about your Complete PC specs and the games you're playing on it.. then i can tell you exactly whats the issue of having bad performance.
