I agree with Oldphil, please download and install the newest drivers if you have not already done so from here: http://www.nvidia.com/download/driverResults.aspx/73218/en-us

Adobe flash player if your video lag is related to the internet... Which games are lagging at what settings?

I'm having trouble running games like Diablo 3 and Tera (both on low graphic settings). My computer shouldn't be having problem running these games especially on low graphics.

Also, it's not just games, if I have about 5 websites up via chrome + skype messenger (no chats on) + have VLC player running, it will lag my video and my mouse movements.

You have Windows 7 Ultimate with DirectX 11,your videocard has DirectX 11.1 but you still are on DirectX 10.Have you disable onboard video from BIOS or Device manager? I think it has become some mess.

Display adapter driver version: 9.18.13.3489 - that isn`t a Nvidia driver and I am almost sure  that Intel graphics is in charge here.I don`t know the brand of your Nvidia card,but it may need additional power from PSU by cable.

How do I disable onboard video from BIOS/Device Manager? and how do I make it so that NVIDIA is in charge and not intel graphics?

that is done in BIOS, sometimes it is called PEG, just enable it. it could be known as some other moniker though

 

PEG means PCI Express Graphics. also, be sure that your monitor cable is plugged in appopriately to the card, not the onboard.

So I checked my BIOS screen and my PCI-E was already enabled. Afterwards I tried to upgrade my DirectX.

I tried to update it through microsoft and it's saying that I have no need for it. I double checked it on dxdiag and it seems like DirectX 11 is installed but isn't showing as 11 on Performance Information and Tools.

It will be still 10 until we succeed to eliminate intel graphics.Tell us exact model of your Nvidia card for example ASUS,Gigabyte etc.

directx isn't a driver or anything that can upgrade. isn't it firmware? either the card has the dx11 or it doesn't. unlike opengl or something like that.

It`s longer than I expected.If it is no longer under warranty and there is no commercial sticky note turn off the computer.You can also switch off from the power button behind the case.Take a screwdriver and unwind the bolts and take off the side cover.You see something like that but here PSU is below.

You see the videocard here and two cabels have been put into it.

Your video card has one connector:

Look if there is a cable put in it here from the power supply.You can also switch on and turn on the computer without touching inside, to see if the fan of the videocard is spining.

The cable from the power supply is definitely connected, green light is on to indicate that there's power (i assume?). fan is working properly as well.
