  1. Watch your CPU usage during the lag spikes, specifically if it gets pegged at 99% usage.

    That's probably your problem then. The CPU is bottlenecking the GPU which causes it to not run as fast. In some cases where there is a lot of stuff going on in the game, the CPU won't be able to process all of it.

    You could try something like Razer gamebooster, but your CPU is pretty old and is likely causing the problems because it can't keep up. It's a bad sign that the CPU is at 100% even when it's not lag spiking.

    Yeah, that confirms that the CPU is the problem. Single player is much less demanding on the CPU.

    Like I said.... you can try something like Razer gamebooster for now. Other than that there's nothing you can do.
