I've been getting hefty fps drops to the point I have to cap fps at 100, my CPU usage is crazy even tho i have Intel turbo boost on of speeds of 3.83 GHz I have tweaked my pc to the max and cant have stable fps and I am trying to obtain low input delay whilst having a stable fps on comp settings
any suggestions?

here are my specs
CPU-i5 9400f coffee lake
GPU-Gtx 1050 2GB
-Single Channel 8 GB ram
acer nitro n50 motherboard

What game, resolution, monitor, monitor connection type (DVI/HDMI/VGA), desired FPS you wanna be at?

For example, your CPU in CS: GO at 1920x1080 resolution, most or all settings maxed goes up to 250 fps, BUT that with dual-channel 3200 Mhz RAM and RTX 2XXX family and the like. On 1050 more like up to 150 fps, but again with dual-channel 3200 Mhz RAM. So unless you want that high you'd need another 8 GB identical stick to run dual channel as that would help, and depending on the exact fps you want you may need better RAM/GPU, etc, so first decide on your expectations. And problems of stutters or input lag or fps drops are also related to the monitor, the resolution you play at, the Hz (Display Rate) of your monitor, the connection of it and that's on the hardware side, rest could be bios/driver/OS or software issues, but since you said you tweaked your pc to the max, maybe this is not the case? I don't know. Another factor since you mentioned input delay would be the input of course, so your mouse if it has 500 Hz 1000 Hz 2000 Hz modes the lower the Hz means faster reaction time so lower input delay/lag but in some cases, conflicts happen and a higher setting could lead to better performance. That's all I can say without the aforementioned specifics.

Single channel Ram and you have tweaked to the max?
Make it dual channel then come back and talk about low input delay.

HDD or SSD, Ethernet or WiFi? and as suggested single channel RAM is going to hurt your FPS, what speed is the RAM? 2133/2400?

I play a multiple variety of competitive games like CS:GO and Fortnite ,the latter destroys my CPU usage for some reason.I play on a ASUS VP228 75Hz monitor at 1554x 1080 because native hurts my eyes . I use a HDMI but would rather switch to a display port and my minimum desired fps would be at 100.

HDD or SSD, Ethernet or WiFi? and as suggested single channel RAM is going to hurt your FPS, what speed is the RAM? 2133/2400?

HDD, WIFI and speed of ram ChannelB-DIMM1 = 2666

My biggest concern would be the single channel ram at the moment. That can cause huge performance loss and spikes in certain scenarios in games. I would get a second stick of 8gb.
