Lets try something simple...this is quite likely a software issue.

Open up Task Manager (Ctrl + Shift + Esc) and go to the 'Processes' tab. Now, while on this tab check the bottom of the screen, what are the read-outs of 'CPU Usage' and 'Physical Memory'? If any of them are much above 30% while you're just idling your PC then arrange the 'Processes list' by CPU or Memory, whichever is higher and find out if there's something using a lot of CPU/Memory.

Running a lot of background software or even having a lot of browser tabs open can cause your CPU and Memory to become clogged up.

Alright.

It doesn't look like your PC is getting all that groggy. Is the game always laggy, or just when a certain event happens, such as an explosion or gunfire?

Alrighty, let's try something else instead:

First try downloading THIS utility.

When the utility is downloaded, put it in it's own folder, such as C:\GPU-Z and then run the utility, go to the 'Sensors' tab and tell me the read-outs of GPU Temp. #1 and #2 and #3 - do this again when the game is running, look for any spikes in the graph.

That actually sounds pretty hot to me, though just to make sure is that measuring in Celcius (I don't remember if that tool can measure in Fahrenheit too).

What do you use, a laptop or a desktop machine?

Furthermore, have you cleaned out your airvents and/or fans from dust recently?

Idling at that temperature can be quite bad.

Is your computer close to anything that gives off heat, a radiator or such?

I am going to throw a wildcard and say that overheating is likely why your PC is running so sluggish.
