My specs:

Windows 7 64bit Service Pack 1

GTX 460 768mb

Core I5-4440 3,1 Ghz

8 GB RAM

Gigabyte B85M-D3H

Corsair CX500

All drivers up to date.

About few months ago my PC got massive slower, mainly in games. About 6 months ago I was able to run AC4 on High settings in 1440x900 with stable 35-40 FPS, now with new monitor and new processor (I upgraded from AMD Phenom II x2@x4 to I5-4440) in 1280x720 on low settings got barly 20 FPS. And it is simmiliar in all games (Shogun 2 used to work in DX11 very high, now it's laggy in DX9 medium).

Yesterday, I reinstalled Windows - performance is still bad. Now I've got some screens:

HWMonitor after ~10 min of playing SWTOR http://i.imgur.com/rWRriOO.jpg

Can you help me with my problem?

- If you go back to the previous CPU would that improve performance ?

- It's most likely the HD is in trouble. Play one of the games for say 10 minutes and then post a snapshot of your system with Speccy (File, Publish Snapshot).

As Willy has stated, your New  configuration of products do not "agree" with each other.

 

Remove the new products, and replace them with New versions of the old products for normal operation.

 

Please post a snapshot with Speccy for more system details -

- What I read in your story is that after replacing the CPU and/or monitor your system became slower.

I can't check performence on old CPU - my mobo was burned (BIOS made 1 long 2 short singals - replacing mobo and cpu solved this problem). That Phenom was a bit unstable, I've unlocked 2 additional cores, but CPU was overheating (60°C just after turning on PC was one of lowest number :P
