Performance issues with no culprit--help?

I've been experiencing low frame rates in games where I exceed the recommended system reqs. After looking at my cpu/gpu temps/load it looks to me as if they aren't doing much work at all. Is there a reason this might be happening?

Resetting the computer typically resolves the problem(it occurs again later), but I don't think this should be happening so I'd like to stop it if at all possible.

Here are my specs: http://imgur.com/O0qtg

Any help would be great, thanks in advance.

  1. Recommended system requirements means you can run it on medium What game,resolution and on low medium high or ultra
  2. Recently, a game called Smite and another called Tribes: Ascend. I used to run Tribes on Very High settings with no problem, (60-90 fps) and smite runs well on most machines really, (I was getting 100+ fps) but then it locks at 20-30 fps.
