Games run slow on a good computer

First of all, here are my pc specs:
intel i5 2500k @3.3
Radeon HD 6850
4GB RAM
Motherboard -GIGABYTE P67A-D3-B3

I've installed all latest drivers for my GPU and everything else.

The problem is that games run very slow on my pc, even games that I should be able to run on recommended, run very slow.
For example, Saints Row IV doesn't even run on my pc, on the lowest settings possible. It get extreme frame drops even on the lowest settings.
World of Warcraft, runs without frame drops only on low settings, when I should be able to run the game on high quite easily.
Naruto Shippuden Ultimate Storm Ninja Full Burst runs slow as well. Getting frame drops on 720P, when the recommanded GPU for this game is Radeon HD 6670.

I've formatted my computer recently, but it still didn't help and the computer stayed slow as it was before.

Anyone has any idea what the problem might be?

Thanks in advance!
