Random lag with any game?

I have had a problem with my computer lately, where in no matter what game, there's always a little lag spike. I don't know why is occurs since I have a GTX 770, i7, and 16GB of RAM, and happens around every second. Any help will be much appreciated!

Nothing is perfect. But some stuff may be affecting your performance because I am assuming your performance was better before. You can do a disk cleanup, defragment of all hard drives, uninstall no longer needed programs and make sure nothing else is running that takes up CPU usage or Memory. You can see what processes are doing this in the task manager

Thanks! Turns out I forgot do do a disk cleanup and ended having almost 30GB in the recycle bin...

It also turns out Java is using a bunch of memory too,
I can just end that.
