All my top shelf games are lagging

Hey everyone!

I've owned my gaming computer for almost a year, and I do tons of gaming on it. Recently, my more advanced games

(Battlefield 3, Deus Ex Human Revolution) are not running like they used to. Also I played these games before the

lagging came and they ran excellently, but I don't know what changed. I updated my graphics card, and scanned my

computer. I'm still looking around for other ways of fixing this problem. I would appreciate some help.

here are my specs:

Processor: AMD Athlon™ II X2 260 Dual-Core CPU

Cooling: Liquid CPU Cooling System [AMD]

Memory: 4 GB [2 GB X2] DDR3-1333 Memory Module

Video Card: NVIDIA GeForce GTX 560 - 2GB - Single Card

Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium 64-Bit

  1. Have you tried system restore ? That might help if you set your restore point back to when it wasn't lagging ?

    what temps is your cpu and gpu hitting?

    you CPU is weak, but that doesn't explain the change over time.
  3. When did you last check the water cooler, cpu could be adjusting its speed as it is hitting a thermal wall.

    Has the 560 increased the heat within case?

    PSU powerful enough to handle the 560 upgrade?
