your problem is that your GPU (graphic processing unit) is an intel onboard gpu. it does nothing else then making sure that you have some visual on your screen. it is not designed for gaming.

do you realy have 2 cpu's in your computer? you are saying "CPU: 2x Intel Pentium III" that doesent sound right. unless it is an old server of some kind.

MOBO: Asus Maximus 6 Hero - GPU: Gigabyte GTX 980ti xtreme - CPU: I7-4770K - PSU: Corsair AX760
RAM: Corsair Vantage 2x4GB - SSD: Samsung 840 Evo 512GB - Case: NZXT H440

Likewise, CPU is way outdated, though it depends on what games you're playing, and Echo has the onboard graphics spot on - Intel GMAs are... for lack of a more constructive phrase "piles of dung".
