i would start with a recommendation to put the draw distance to half of that 296, or even lower to 128, your viewer wants to load 9 regions around you now.
When you stand in the middle and use 128 you'll still be able to see the whole region

Are you sure you had such a huge, nearly fullscreen 4K window when you were getting 120fps? I know the 1080ti is a good card (and the rest of the hardware is obviously fine) but... that's a lot of pixels.

Try another viewer: Catznip (this one will definitely give a performance boost,) Kokua, the Official LL Viewer. This will help determine if the issue is with the viewer setup itself or something amiss on your OS or overall system. And remember that Windows slowly eats itself to death, so general computer maintenance won't hurt. If it's not a viewer issue (all alternate viewers give poor performance) then check your system thoroughly, also for any malware or running background processes sucking CPU or RAM resources, then check your network connection and router.

Far too many moving parts to give details beyond a checklist to go through. Though @Whirly Fizzle may be able to give better advice; she is Firestorm/Computer GURU. :)

Also, what is your height above ground, and was your height the same when you were getting the higher frame rates?  Textures, especially high resolution textures, have a huge impact on frame rate.  If you are up above 1000m, no textures that are at ground level are rendered, so performance at 1000m and above is a LOT higher than you get at the same location at ground level.

You didn't really tell us where you are and what your viewer is having to render that pulls you down to 20 FPS... So, we can only guess at what may help.

Your Windows version is behind, but updating is unlikely to help SL FPS.

Your NVIDIA 416.94 is behind a  couple of versions. Current is I think 26.21.14.3086 or 430.86. But, that isn't likely to help much either.

Your Bandwidth at 500 may hurt a tiny bit. Try 1500, which is the recommended max from days gone by.

If you are around lots of avatars, you can decrease the non-impostor avatars settings. Also, set the ACI limit to 150k or 250k. Both of those will help in crowded regions.

At ground level on the mainland with no one around, you should get 20 to 50 FPS. At 3,000m altitude with nothing around you should go over 120 FPS.

Take a look at the recommended NVIDIA settings: http://blog.nalates.net/2016/06/05/nvidia-settings-2016/ - These settings can have a big impact.

Look through the viewer settings explained here: http://blog.nalates.net/2010/12/17/graphics-tweaking-for-second-life/ - You can tweak your settings to get better performance. Performance comes at the cost of quality render. So, you will need to balance acceptable quality versus performance. It takes some experience and experimenting to get the best balance.

And it is summer. If you live in a hot dusty place, check the computer temperatures. Use HD Monitor (free) to read temps without having to open the case. 75C is a max. Lower is better. But, above 75C you may see the CPU and/or GPU throttle back to reduce heat build up. If you are running hot, consider dusting the computer insides, air conditioning the computer room, or buy a better heat sink.
