Specs: windows 8.1, i5 3570k/ballistix 8gb ddr3
ok I just really want to know why in all the games I have that go multiplayer the fps drops immensely now I recently made this computer cost me 700$ and its has what I thought was the best parts for the the money I had. I did a lot of research and had a few friends that were smarter than me in the pc building field help me. Now I have an i5 3570k processor a gigabyte geforce gtx 660 graphics card and a ballistix 8gb ddr3 (2 4 gigs) ram cards an asrock z77 extreme 4 mother board and a cx600m power supply all running on windows 8.1 pro and I dont know why all my games keep lagging with really low fps. Now I checked my ping during the games and the are not high at all ranging from about 60 and below and I re installed all the newest drivers like 5 times I cant figure out why.

What are your hardware temperatures? That sounds like a classic example of hardware throttling due to overheating. Use a program like speedfan (http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php) and record your temps while running the games.

What speed memory?
Are you overclocking your CPU? GPU?
Have you optimized the BIOS settings for your CPU, RAM, PCIe, SATA ports (AHCI), etc.?
What hard drive are you running?
I have used Speedfan, but now I recommend HWMonitor for temps, voltages, and fan speed readings. Please post all these at idle and gaming.

34 deg C is fine, but you did not tell us what temp you were reporting, there are probably 5 or more temps (CPU, Chipset, Hard Drive, etc).
If the machine was just put together, there are some settings that need to be made to get the best performance out of the hardware. Get your friends to help and/or watch and read online about building and optimizing. Include the model of your motherboard for the best info for your needs. Then ask us anything specific you do not understand.
