Looking for some advice.

First off, let me say I'm a bit of a noob when it comes to computers and the like - so I'm sorry if I can't convey exactly what I have in computer lingo and so on. Also - I appreciate any help that can be offered.

My computer was upgraded earlier this year - but I'm having some issues with it freezing during some of the games I play - Specifically WoW and League of Legends. At first I thought it was a heating issue, but now I'm not so sure if it is. My computer seems to start up, and run a bit choppier, compared to those with computer that, to my knowledge, are effectively worse than mine. Here's a bit on the dxdiag I ran just prior to making this post.
