seems like a virus activity for me. reboot to safe mode > open task manager > click the CPU % column and see if there is an unusual process thats causing the high usage.

I think you should reformat your computer. Maybe you have downloaded a buggy windows 8 OS.

You're doing too much on that rig if you're playing above medium settings.
