Random lag spikes when playing

Hello I have a desktop and I am getting random lag spikes when playing games. I play dota 2, starcraft2 and planetside 2. In each game I get lag spikes very frequently to the point that I cant play similar to the ones in the video below. The first 2 months I had internet I had no problems. After that the lag spikes started. At first i thought it was just my internet being slow. I get 25MPS 15 on wireless. I went to my girlfriends house over the holidays she has great internet and I still experienced lag. I dont know her internet speed but I was able to download games, browse the internet and watch netflix with no problems but my games still lagged. I think it may be my computer is their any trouble shooting I can do to fix this. I think it may be the performance of my wireless adaptor I have in my desktop

Do you have any hardware monitoring software running? I find that sometimes will cause stuttering and slow downs in games.

Random GPU spikes
My laptop has random graphics card spikes and I cant seem to find what is causing it. It doesn't seem to affect any games, it just makes the fan start and stop every other second which is pretty annoying.
