It is a Dell laptop with an I3 2.2 processor nvidia 550m and 6GB ram. Yes I have tried other games. Ive noticed this significantly on Unturned DayZ and minecraft. CS:Go runs smoothly for example.

I would say check all of your components make sure you have the latest update's.

(Graphics card, Processor, Adobe flash, Windows updates)

 

If anyone in the house or workplace smokes inside, Your fans get gunked up so a possible cleaning would need to be done.

 

The air vents on the sides or back of your laptop,

Are they brown looks like dust gathered up around the holes?

 

If so you can Just buy a can or two of Air Duster open your case the best you can and spray short bursts of the Air Duster in there around your fan/fans.

If you do not have loud noises (Fan loud noise) inside your laptop its best to not open it!

 

To tell you another way, It would be like gainning 60 pounds and trying to run a 1/2 mile race. (Out of breathe, wore out from something you weren't used to)

 

Another thing, Are the processor and Graphics card what came in the laptop?   Original?   (Or Aftermarket upgrade)
