OBS Game Capture uses all of my CPU

Hello,
I've recently started using OBS Studio to capture Minecraft for my YouTube channel. I've encountered an issue where OBS is using about 50% of my CPU when using the game capture source, it makes Minecraft drop from 120 FPS to 10 FPS even when I'm not recording/streaming. When I use display capture source my game runs fine at 100 FPS but my video comes out at around 2.

Here are my specs,
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3470 CPU @ 3.20GHz 3.20 GHz
RAM: 8GB
GPU: Intel Graphics

Here is the OBS Log file,

Also it says I'm on a Laptop but its actually a Desktop

I hope you can help as I really want to get back to making videos.
