Why? That looks like a great system. You sure wont get a noticeable perf gain in games.

it was running ok for a while but now it is starting to lag in games. Sometyimes it lags and freezes, where I have to shut it off through the power bnutton. Sometimes it just freezes and stutters (by stutters, I mean it repeats the same sound over and over again while freezing).... I dont know what the problem is. I just reformatted my compujter because of this and the same problem still comes up.

Your system is very close to mine, you shouldn't have any problems.
You dont really have to upgrade unless you want the very very top end computer. And in that case you would have to get a total overhaul.

The stock hsf require cleaning on a regular basis. That may help with your freezing problems. Also make sure the hsf on the graphics card is clean, and working well.
