Longstanding graphical performance issues

I'm not exactly sure this should go here, though, for a while, I've been having some issues regarding my computer builds, at first I thought it might be a problem with my video cards, then I tried updating whatever drivers I could, though now I'm not really sure what's going on and I'm starting to suspect it might be my SSD I have my copy of Windows 7 installed on (after moving it between different computers that I have built).
it's not only videos that are affected, my start up screen also feels rather sluggish for some reason, and I have tried adjusting my monitor frequency among other things, though nothing seems to work out. can someone explain what I might be doing wrong for this to happen?
if you need more information here my current system specs:

As far as I can see from the report the graphics driver is outdated. Update it!
