I don`t see an add on video card present in the above specs only the stock Nvidea 6100 which is never going to play any demanding video games, it is an entry level video chip that shows its age by only being DirectX 9 capable.

 

Can you post a link to the model of computer that you purchased, if not download then run Speccy and post the resultant url for us, details here
