If none of the components have failed and the unit is running properly, upgrading the memory will not help. First, you will not be upgrading the memory, just increasing the amount. If your programs ran properly for years on what you have, that is not the answer. GPU...same situation as I already mentioned.
More than likely you have something that is interfering with the program. The games are not crashing, they are lagging. Something is taking CPU clock cycles away from the proper operation of the game. The first suspicion is adware/spyware, then viruses.
Run Junkware Removal Tool, Adwcleaner and Ccleaner download from Here. Do not use any other utilities on that page, only those three. Let them remove anything they find.
Next, run Malwarebytes, download from Here. Use the in-depth scanner and allow it to remove anything it finds.
[EDIT]: Afterthought: Malwarebytes has the free edition which is excellent; during installation they offer a 30-day trial of their upgraded, retail version. Just deselect the checkbox, only install the free version.
See if that helps.
If no joy, post in the Malware removal section of BC for an analysis of any viruses that may be running in the background.
