Random FPS Lag in games

  1. I have been experiencing this fps lag that would occur randomly when I play games such as League of Legends and Far Cry 3. The game would run perfectly fine but after a while it will start getting lag spikes and progress to a point where the game actually freezes for a second or 2. In the case of far cry, the performance recovers, in the case of LoL, the performance recovers but the fps still stutters. This never happened a few month back and my computer is quite new (bought in January)

    This has been happening recently and I have tried defragging, installing antivirus, and even reformatting the computer but the problem persists. I am deciding to reformat my computer once more but before that I want to get some help from here to see if this is a software/computer setting problem. Othewise, I would suspect it is a hardware problem where my graphic card has been deteriorating.

    Here are my system specs:

    Are you playing these games on-line when the lag occurs?

    I am playing League of Legends online and I have about steady100 latency. For far cry, it is offline.
