Strange lag issue?

Specs: Windows Vista
Ok so my computer is a Dell studio xps and I've had it for about a month now, and up until recently is has been working perfectly. Anyway I regularly play video games on here, and yesterday after entering an instanced dungeon in the game my computer started acting up and its been having some kind of strange lag ever since. My FPS doesnt go down, nor does my Latency shoot up, but I'll click a spell with a castbar for example and the castbar takes a few seconds to pop up. This has not only affected the game my computer has also been starting up a bit slower. I've tried a defrag and a system restore nothing has worked any ideas?

When you say system restore you mean Microsoft's restore to previous and not the Dell Restore??

It isn't easy but look at a few things first. See event logs. See taskman and might have to setup a perfmon (many settings are possible) to view what is causing it.

Worse comes to worse restore it to factory state. It would be good to learn how to do that while you don't have a lot of data on it.
