At this point I see nothing hardware wise wrong with your system.
Increasing your memory may help but in the end the issue may be that the laptop is just not capable of doing what you want.
As a rule laptops are not meant for high end gaming since they do not have the better graphics like a desktop has.
Increasing the memory may take some of the load off the system on running background programs in Startup and Autoruns.
Try the following and let me know what it says for the maximum amount of memory.
Go to HERE and run the Crucial online scanner.
This will give you the exact memory configuration for your system.
You do not have to buy the memory from there, but write down the information and if you need assistance in purchasing the upgrade memory GTG can assist with suggestions also.

Even though you are running a Windows partition on the IMac you are still running on a Imac system at the root.
Other then the games does the system run like it should? No lagging when browsing the internet or watching videos or movies?
