My computer just suddenly started lagging in game play??

Hey their guys.

RAM: 4 GB
32 bit windows 7 ultimate
Processor: AMD Atholon 64 X2 Duel Core 5000+ 2.61 GHz
Graphics Card: GeForce 9600 GSO 768MB DDR2
Hard Drive: Sata connected 250GB

I have tryed dusting the computer and the prosessor,
I have tryed using uniblue speed up my pc, registry cleaner, drivers update. Did run all of them didnt help. I have de-fraged.
I have installed avg free protection, and i connected an old ide hard drive, installed a clean windows 7 with drivers, and games like mineraft were still laggy.
