System Lags

I have a computer that I just recently built and I wanted it to be really good. Its an:
I7 920 2.66 not over clocked
GTX 280 Super clocked 1gig
12 Gigs of DDR3 Ram (corsair XMS3 1600 Tri-channel)
EVGA X58 MOBO
650W PSU
Seagate Barracuda 2TB HDD

I've checked all my drivers and looked for any known problems with the system and I have not found any. I have a 10Meg internet connection so I don't know what it could be. I shouldn't be lagging in Anything I do. Games I play often are Eve-Online, RUSE, and Dawn of War II. I run Ventrilo most occasions when I play the games, and the sound lags badly too when the video lags. Plus some updaters lag and have a poor connection too when I try and update some games. But the problem isn't a connection issue because the single player modes lag also.
