Computer starts lagging when i watch long videos

My computer starts lagging after i watch longer videos on youtube. The same problem occurs with gaming, initially the game works fine but starts lagging 10 mins into the game.

  1. My initial thought is overheating leading to throttling. Can you list your full system specs? Extra credit if you can run your computer under load for a while and check the temps when it starts to lag.
  2. As subasteve says. If it was only on-line videos lagging I'd suspect your internet connection but if games lag too, could be other problems. Also, what are your specs?
