Lower the quality of the Games and see if that helps and try running in 1024x768 or even 800x600. Also you should probably defrag and maybe it is time for a Reformat, how long have you had your system for?

ya obviously if you want to reformat it will erase everything.. you have to have another HDD to put the information in the there, and transfer it again.
