Alright so, before my reinstall yesterday, when I was playing counter strike source at 1920x1080 at lowest settings, I got around 40 FPS, and kept getting lag spikes to around 12 FPS. How ever, I reformatted my computer yesterday and reinstalled everything, but now I can play counter strike source at 1920x1080 at medium settings with no lag what so ever, probably a steady 80 FPS.

So I was wondering if my computer was infected before my reformat. I know you can't really give a direct answer since we'll never know now, but if you were to guess, what would you say? I'm worrying because I bought something off Amazon before my reformat and had to enter credit card information.

You are correct...there is not enough information to make an informed assessment and guessing would be guessing.

Since you're not sure and you use your machine for financial transaction, then change all your passwords as a precaution. If using a router, change its password too.
