That GPU could be causing a bottleneck with the CPU.

That gpu is only good for older games and low profile games.
Not games like battlefield 4 and thief.

what games are you having trouble with?

I'm having trouble running games like Diablo 3 and Tera (both on low graphic settings). My computer shouldn't be having problem running these games especially on low graphics.

Also, it's not just games, if I have about 5 websites up via chrome + skype messenger (no chats on) + have VLC player running, it will lag my video and my mouse movements.

Sounds like you need to upgrade but your path is limited..

Still it should not act like that.
Open task manager - go to processes and performance to check if the CPU are using too much resources on something.

I couldn't help but notice that your harddrive is only a 200gb harddrive and you have 75gb left.
A harddrive upgrade would do wonders. harddrives get slower by age (because the spinning speed decreases) and the more stuff it has on it, it will store more at the end of the disk, which takes longer to read.

Ya I probably need an upgrade but like BikerEcho has mentioned, it shouldn't be acting this way. my CPU usage stays around 5-15% even when running videos or games. the harddrive is new and the person who installed it for me purposely divided up the partitions. so the C: and D: is actually one harddrive.

are your CPU running at the right clock speed?

Does it matter which video program you use to watch videos?

Download this program: CPUID - System & hardware benchmark, monitoring, reporting

when you open it your CPU is properly gonna be in idle state, so you have to launch something like a video before the CPU clocks itself up to full potential.
