[SOLVED] New Nvidia GTX 1060 very low FPS and low GPU utilization

So my AMD R9 280x died a few days ago and I bought a 1060. In every game I try to play, I get about 30 fps and under. I should also mention it works perfectly fine on my windows partition, so it's not a hardware issue. I've checked the GPU Utilization in nvidia-settings and it's at about 10% when running a game. I assume this is the issue but I have no idea what would be causing it.

I've tried blacklisting nouveau (in numerous ways) but when I run "mkinitcpio -M" it still shows up, so I'm not sure if maybe that has something to do with this.

Any ideas?

EDIT:
Ok not exactly sure what I did but it's fixed now

man mkinitcpio wrote:

       -M, --automods
           Display modules found via autodetection. mkinitcpio will
           automatically try to determine which kernel modules are needed to
           start your computer. This option lists which modules were detected.

The module being listed by mkinitcpio -M does not imply the module is in use or included in the initrd.  The nvidia packages in the arch repositories blacklist nouveau by default.

Ah ok. Did not realize that. Now I've checked lsmod and nouveau is not listed there so I suppose that isn't the issue.
