Something is either constantly 99% loading your CPU, or you could have a swap space issue on the HDD. Which make/model is your PC?

Do you have anything to monitor temps? a lot of dust can even choke of a strong video card enough that it can cause it to lag even for basic stuff like videos

The card would likely cut out or blank the screen if that were so.

The video card and processor both have a feature that if they hit a certain temp they begin to throttle themselves down in order to stay cool.

It's unlikely they would throttle that much.

It is more than possible for the processor and video card to throttle to the point that it struggles with videos. When a processor throttles its Dynamic frequency scaling reduces the number of instructions a processor can issue in a given amount of time, thus reducing performance. It also changes the voltage on the fly in order to try to keep its self at a safe temp.

That depends on the CPU/GPU. I doubt this is the issue.

Sorry late answer. I had same problem, I updated my graphics, did tests and everything, nothing seemed to fixed it. Temp is fine. However, I have the asus sabertooth z87. It has a GUI with mouse pointer. The pointer runs in slow motion too. I update the BIOS and voila! I hope that'll fix it for you too.
