How are your temperatures? Try using hwmonitor to measure those. The CPU idle temps shouldn't be more than about 35C and load shouldn't be more than 70C. The hard drives shouldn't be more than 45C (you want them in the 30s optimally). The GPU should idle at up to 40C and under load shouldn't be more than 70C. Also, how is the hard drive health? Try running Seatools. Also, how are the power supply voltages? Find a molex connector:
and a multimeter. Yellow is +12V, red is +5V, and the blacks are ground (it doesn't matter which one you use). The voltages should be within +/-5% of those nominal ones.

By the way, don't pay any attention to the software voltage readings there, since those are often inaccurate (sometimes it reads the wrong sensor - if my 12V line were really at 1.09V, the system wouldn't have booted at all), and the sensors aren't very accurate in the first place.

Trust me, this isn't as hard as it sounds once you get the hang of it.
Also, in the task manager, is there anything hogging the cpu?

Remove unused programs
Install and run antispyware software
Free up wasted space with Disk Cleanup tool
Defragment your hard disk drive
Disconnect unused network connections:
Click Start, and then click My Computer.
On the Tools menu, click Disconnect Network Drive.
Select the network drives that you no longer need, and then click OK.
Stop Unwanted startup programs:
Start > Run > write msconfig > Click on StartUp tab
Deselect the programs you want to stop

Click Start - Run, type in %temp% and then click OK.
Once that temp folder is open and you can view its contents, select and delete EVERYTHING that's inside it.
It's all junk and is a good place for "nasties" to hide.
If a few files resist being deleted, that's normal. Leave them alone and delete EVERYTHING else.
Repeat the steps with c:\windows\temp
After you're done with both temp folders, restart the computer.
