PC getting random lag spikes and freezing

I've recently been having lag spikes randomly while playing different games. Fortnite and Sea of Thieves have random lag spikes, but Minecraft freezes my entire computer for about 5 minutes to load and then continues to lag. I've updated my drivers, defragged my computer, searched for viruses and malware, change PC to performance mode and put all settings to low. I've been able to play these games without the lag spikes before and it started happening about a month ago.

I bought my PC on Newegg. It's getting close to 4 years old. Will post the link below to the listing to show the specs.
