MS Windows 7 Home Premium 64-bit SP1

The temps look all good, same with the specs, also virus's can cause slowdowns in computers, have you tried scanning your computer for virus's? And do you have any other programs open while playing/closing games?

Windows 10 64bit

Since you said you recently bought the computer,first thing I would do is update the drivers for the video card and any other components in the machine,also updating windows 7 through windows updates all the way through can also fix performance and other issues in the windows operating system. The load temps seems to be normal though a little warm and could be better but nothing too drastic, make sure your computer is getting enough space to blow the air out with the fans and isn't to closed spaces were it would be hard to get rid of hot air from inside the machine.

beta version invidia driver installed.
no different.
someone said me about dota 2 bug that fill system memory and make windows full of lag.
the good news is that when i close chrome before going to the games it dosn't happen anymore i think.
must check more to be certain.
