Computer Not Running Properly

Hey guys!
So I've had my rig for about 1 1/2 years and now and it's done me well. However, for the past couple of months I've noticed a decline in performance.
My specs are as follows:
Intel i5-3570k

GeForce GTX 760

1 TB HDD

8GB RAM

650 Watt Power Supply


Now when I started with the PC it was a bit odd but as time passed it got worse. For example I run Farcry 3 at under 25 fps and Black Ops 2 for some reason is locked at 6 fps. Counter Strike even gives me ridiculous frames and I'm not sure what to do anymore. I've tried everything including updating drivers, defragmenting, I have even bought a GeForce GTX 960 but the results were the same. I will note that my friend initially built my PC since I wasn't educated and I think he might've used a non-registered Windows 7 since it never updates and well I hope it's not pirated but could this actually be an issue? Can my operating system be the thing? I need any help please.

Right click the game you want to run and select "run with graphics processor" and select your gpu. You may/may not have this option but if you do, most likely it set to run with the game with your onboard graphics (which is no good)

Ignore your graphics card issue.

Get yourself a licensed version of Windows immediately. You're running around the internet with no pants on if it is in fact not legit.
 
I would like you to download two free programs, and post screen shots somewhere that we can see them... If you have not done this before, run each program, then press ALT-PrtScrn and then open up Paint or any picture editor, paste the screen shot in, and save it to your pictures folder. Then if need be, go to http://tinypic.com/ and setup a free account, upload the 2 screenshots, and for each one, you will be shown an IMG link, which if you copy those into this box, will show us what your screenshots saved.

You can always disable any onboard/integrated graphics thus leaving your GeForce GTX 960 as the only source of graphics on your system. And I agree 100% with MarkW.....download both apps and post the results.
 
The problem is that your CPU which should be running at 3.4Ghz is running at 1.6Ghz.

The multiplier on the CPU should be running at 34. Instead, its running at 16. I suspect that you may have changed it in the BIOS at some point.

With the machine off, I want you to turn the power on, and when you see the screen telling you how to get into the BIOS (normally by pressing F2 or DEL), do that. Then go to the Save/Exit page, and there should be an option on that page to Reset to Defaults. Do that. Then select Save and Exit. And let the computer reboot.

Once the system is back to the desktop, run CPU-Z again, and make a new screenshot of it, and post that please.
