Could be a number of issues here.

- Update your video card drivers
- Are your system specs enough for the games you wanna play?
Please gie us an example of a game and your system specs
- Faulting memory ( do a memory test here
- Clean up your computer ( Remove dust from the interior)
- Hard disk failure

There could be, as Fozzie mentions, many factors causing your gaming problems. Certainly checking to make sure you have the latest video and audio drivers is important, as it checking to see if there are any manufacturers' patches for the games.
Many games allow the gamer to select "best performance" in their options screen; you might experiment with these. Certainly posting a couple of examples would help us.

Background tasks could also be the source of this problem.

Maybe you should end a few processes that hog your resources.
