An SSD does not help with FPS, all it does is lower load and boot times.

The issue could be that the system isn't switching to the 950M as it's supposed to and just using the Intel graphics. I've run into this issue a lot lately as nVidia has some jacked up drivers as of late. Try updating both nVidia and Intel drivers.
