Computer games slow randomly?

Please excuse me if I post this in the wrong section but,

Whenever I play games (example - Counter-Strike Global Offensive) The game has random lag -. After bootup of the computer the games seem to run fine, but after it idles (with some programs running) for about 30 minutes or so, games lag (at a fixed framerate?) even though my graphics card is capable of running the game at much higher speeds. This is not a very perfect explanation of it, but I think it was the problem with my motherboard or something.

 

System specs:

Operating System : Windows 7 Professional 64-bit (6.1, Build 7601) Service Pack 1

Processor : Intel® Core™2 Quad CPU    Q8200  @ 2.33GHz (4 CPUs), ~2.3GHz
Graphics Card : NVIDIA GeForce GTX 650 Ti BOOST

RAM : 8.00 GB
Motherboard
0601 - Model : DQ45CB
0602 - Manufacturer : Intel Corporation

 

Thanks,

Chargin

 

EDIT - The BIOS is very slow loading too.

[just a guess]

That if you reboot and start playing all will be well. The break, with programs running, sounds like they are getting priority and when the game returns it has to make do with what's available.

Alright. I will try and set the other programs priority to Low and see if that works out.

EDIT -  I'm going to set the game's priority to high instead.

Thanks

For some reason, it's still slow.  Anyone got any other suggestions?

Maybe your games are set to have VSync on. VSync causes me problems where i'll get some lag. try setting that to off.

The core 2 quad doesnt give you much room to work with being 2.3ghz but i could be wrong, Intel is usually faster at the same speed as a "matching" amd chip, or so they say. but I've got a 6 core processor at 3.5ghz and running a game will fill it up 50-80 percent so even with the extra speed, if i so much as run a virus scan i can have moments of lag.
Maybe your antivirus is a resource hog?

VSync is off for every game, and I sometimes turn off Malwarebytes, which gives me a bit more speed. I recently figured out the problem that it was my old crappy motherboard.

Identifying the problem is over half way to solving it.

if you believe the problem to be the motherboard, then theres ONE course of action.
Although I still think the processor is a possible issue

 

Is this a custom build, or was this system already built for you? I dont recognize the motherboard

This was a pre-built computer. I don't remember what company built the PC, but I built on to the PC. The only things I replaced was the graphics card.
