I have a self-built PC that's about 2 years old and I can't run youtube while I play games I'm wondering what parts I should replace.

These are the specs

CPU 2 years old: Intel Core i5-4590 3.30GHz not overclocked

Ram:https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231488

I have two sticks of ram 1 of them is 2 years old and the other is about 2 months old

Graphics card: https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00NNXVPS...

2 years old

SSD: 480GB 1 month old

Power supply: Corsair CX500

Thanks for your time!

Before you go replacing things do a quick malware check. These three are particularly good at unearthing things that other programs miss. Run them in the order given:

AdwCleaner:
https://toolslib.net/downloads/view...
(blue "Download Now" button on right).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run the program. Use the "Scan" button, followed by the "Clean" button.

Junkware Removal Tool (JRT)
https://www.malwarebytes.org/junkwa...
(blue Download button).
Download and "Save" the file somewhere. Go to the saved file then double click it to run JRT. It might appear to have stopped at times or flash the screen but sit tight until it has finished.

MalwareBytes:
https://www.malwarebytes.org/
(use the "Free Download" button rather than the "Buy Now" button).
After the install go to "Settings > Protection". Under Scan Options move the "Scan for rootkits" slider over to On and Run the Threat Scan. Quarantine anything it finds.

If anything is found please copy/paste the appropriate logs on here. If you lose the ADW log you can find it as a text file in the ADWCleaner folder directly off the system drive root (usually C).

Have you killed off unnecessary background tasks and ensured that there is only one virus checker running permanently in the background?

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

You didn't list any games, but why would you need to watch youtube while playing?

"i have just done a clean reinstall"

Did you delete the partitions & start from scratch? Did you install the latest drivers? Chipset driver 1st? Are you running this graphics driver? http://www.nvidia.com/download/driv...

Depending on how you did the install & which disc (or ISO) you used, it will take a while for Win10 to catch up with the updates. You should also disable the useless crap such as Cortana & uninstall all the Windows extras that come along for the ride. Download & install CCleaner-Slim. https://www.piriform.com/ccleaner/b...

Run the Cleaner & Registry scanner... remove everything they find. Disable all the unnecessary startup apps, which will be most of them. Then use the uninstaller to get rid of the excess garbage. Most of this crap can go: https://billmullins.files.wordpress...

And make sure you're running a lightweight anti-virus, preferably a freebie such as BitDefender. Avoid the resource hogs such as Norton or McAfee.

I am updating my graphics drivers and I have no major hogs in my processes. I Have been playing the game Elder scrolls on medium low settings and I want to display youtube videos on my second monitor while I play. I am also getting Junkware Removal Tool (JRT) once the graphics update finishes

We can obviously forget that idea - new install would have sorted it anyhow.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Ok, that is all good.

Let me look at these logs, to see if I can find clues.

Please download Farbar Recovery Scan Tool and save it onto your Desktop. If your default download location is not the Desktop, drag it out of it's location onto the Desktop.
http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/dow...
If we have to run Farbar more than once, refer this SS.

Note: You need to run the version compatible with your system. If you are not sure which version applies to your system download both of them and try to run them. Only one of them will run on your system, that will be the right version.
Double-click to run it. When the tool opens click Yes to disclaimer.
Press Scan button.
It will make a log (FRST.txt) on the Desktop.
The first time the tool is run, it makes also another log (Addition.txt)
The logs are large, upload them using this. No account/registration needed. Give us the links please.

Run an Internet Speed Test locally to you to see how your internet speed is in relation to others near you. Your videos may be suffering from Cable or other shared line being overused in your branch from your ISP.
Are you wired to your Router or are you using Wifi? It matters when it comes to speed. Are you showing full bars on your Wifi (Computer, phone, etc.).

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.

Speed test OK
Graphics card should be good.
Power supply should be good. Check Voltages (12V, 5V, 3.3V are +/- 5% or less).
Available RAM should be enough but you could add more.
How are monitors plugged into graphics card? Any adapters?
What motherboard? Check the CPU support and what BIOS version supports it. If the board is an early model then a BIOS update might help with newer model CPU's and GPU's (I had a problem with newer CPU and GPU not fully recognized until BIOS update) NOTE: BIOS updates must be made with all reasonable precautions because a failed BIOS update can render MB useless. I recommend using a UPS to supply power in case of a power failure. I recommend the Flash method. I also recommend seeing if other theories out there that might help before trying this one (unless support or improved support for CPU or GPU/PCIe graphics is listed as a reason for a new BIOS update being made available).
Did you delete partitions and create a new partition(s) when you reinstalled Windows? This does make a difference.
