Multiplayer Game Lag Spikes?

Computer specs: Windows 7 64 bit. AMD Athlon II X4 620 Processor (4 cpus) 2.6 GHz
Graphic card: Nvidia GeForce 9100
Im on a wired connection and have roadrunner.

Ok. I no theres 1000 threads on the internet about this but im still having the problem. I bought this computer brand new and started playing multiplayer games and for about 2 months never had a problem. All the sudden i started getting lag spikes every 5 minutes.

What happens is ill be playing and everything is perfect then boom i get a huge lag spike for 5 minutes and then it goes back to normal... It happens in every game i try to play. Wether its Need for speed world, AVA, or League Of Legends. I checked my physical memory while i was playing so its not that. I checked my cpu usage and it doesnt go passed 40%. Its not my internet because ive tried and it still does it at my friends on a wireless network. Ive tried the sound fix. Ive tried the fix where you disable your Multimedia schedule program. None of these have worked. Any suggestions?
