PC lagging when GPU mining

When I mine bitcoin with my GPU, my computer becomes unresponsive, mouse is lagging, everything is lagging, cant even browse on the internet normally, its like unusable. I think think this is not normal because I saw other people mining and using PC just fine. What could be wrong? I'm mining with lyra2v2 on GTX 1070.

CPU: Intel i7-6700K@4.20Ghz MB: Gigabyte Z270X Gaming K5 RAM: HyperX Fury 16GB DDR4 2133Mhz CL14 GPU: MSI GTX 1070 Armor OC Case: NZXT H440 SSD: Crucial MX200 250GB HDD: WD Blue 2TB 5400RPM PSU: Seasonic G-550 Monitor 1: BenQ XL2411Z 144HZ Monitor 2: Samsung S27D391H 60Hz Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212X Keyboard: Razer Blackwidow Chroma V2 Mouse: Logitech G502 Headphones: Steelseries Arctis 7 Mousepad: Steelseries Qck+ Chair: AKRacing Player OS: Windows 10 Pro 64-bit

it's 2017, why the hell are you mining BTC with a GPU?? 

It's normal, when the GPU is maxed obviously graphical applications will lag.

When a GPU is busy it uses the PCIE lanes to communicate with the CPU, which uses the CPU resources. If you really want to waste your electricity on GPU mining, get another computer to do it. It's not worth it now, and you're better off using your GPU for a better cause like Protein folding. If you want more info, the forum has a board dedicated to it.

Really bad mh/w, you'll earn literally nothing while chewing up more power than the actual earnings and stressing the shit out of your new card

Not mining Bitcoin with anything. It's not worth it anymore unless you have thousands of dollars to invest into custom mining hardware.

No, they're worthless at the moment. There are too many for any one of them to be viable. Wait for them to be mainstream (like walmart accepting bitcoin) to do anything.

Thanks, guys. I checked out the Folding@Home and I decided I will stop mining and rather use my power on Folding :)

You can join Team EVGA and earn $10 a month with F@H if you make 4 million points a month or $5 for 2 million points. http://www.evga.com/folding/MyFolding.asp

 

Keep in mind you will only get those points with a somehow new GPU. Cpu folding doesnt give many points.
