hello i have a type of (lag??) i play first person shooter(fps) when i am running i get stuck. the best way i can explain how it looks is, if you have ever seen the movie Jumper at the end of the movie the paladins pin the main actor to a wall. now when he is trying to jump the electric shock stops him ( how he looks at this moment rapidly moving but gets stuck in the same spot) this is what it looks like. any hlp on what this might be cause by. i appreciate the info

The HiPro 350W is a low quality PSU with two 18A +12V rails and an efficiency rating of less than 70%, not suitable for a PCIE graphics card. I would upgrade to a 550W, 40A/+12V, 80% efficiency.

The CPU clock speed of 1600MHz is a power-saving feature. If it jumps to 2666MHz when gaming, there's nothing to worry about, it's working properly.

Don't touch the 115/230 switch at the back of the PSU. It's used for voltages in different countries and can be dangerous if set incorrectly.

I would upgrade to a better quality PSU. Your HiPro 350W is not good enough for your graphics card. When the graphics card is not receiving enough power, it underperforms, leading to lag, artifacts and crashes.
