Hello,

I just made this account to ask for help with some FPS problems when playing PC games. I have been told by multiple people that my computer is good and should be able to run newer games at pretty decent FPS, but i haven't been able to thus far. Games like Battlefield 3, Assassins creed 4 and goat simulator run at less than 10 FPS. IM not sure what to do so i came here for possible advice and solutions

 

I have attached my Razer Diagnostic report, not sure if that will help bring about a solution though. Also, sorry if i seen kind of mad, its just that im getting frustrated because i dont know much about computers and i just want to play some games :) 

 

Thanks in advance for the Help

You are using Intergrated Graphics.

The rec system requirements is a dedicated GPU of a GTX 560. You have a Radeon HD 7560D (G3D score of 660).

The 560 has a G3D of 3,098.

You have enough RAM.
Your processor should be fine. Quad AMD CPU @ 3.2Ghz.

You have a PCI-E x16 Slot.

You also have PunkBuster. Which meets the technical defintion of Spyware.

Let me know if you would like a card for the PCI-E and I can get Phill here so he can help you

Thanks for the response,

I have removed PunkBuster, and it would be awesome if you could recommend a card for the PCI-E

 

thanks again.

 

EDIT: i had someone tell me that my "monitor" could be causing problems because it has a weird resolution. I'm using a small TV i had before i got my computer. Could that really be the problem?

Hello doyle239

 

As already advised by Alan1998 the integrated video chip will hinder your gaming/FPS performance, sort this first as it does need doing and then see how the present screen that you are using bears up.

 

Please note that before purchasing an add on video card that the following must be considered;

Is the present PSU (power supply unit) powerful enough or will it also need upgrading.

What type of case do you have, full tower, mid tower or SFF (small form factor) this is important as you must make sure that there is enough room inside the case for the upgrade/s, upgrading a SFF type system can be difficult as they often use propriety components such as smaller and differing shape PSUs and they only have enough room inside the case for a low profile type add on card.

 

Can you post the brand and model name or number of the PSU, the type of case you have and what speed your Ram is.

In your games, do you have all the options turned on?  If you were to reduce your settings to medium, you should see an improvement.

 

As to display resolution, the larger the display resolution is set to, the more it demands.  Even more so when you go over 1920x1080.  However if your are a smaller resolution (16x9 is normaly 1366×768) then that should also help you out, but not nearly as much as reducing your in game settings. 

 

In bf3, I adjusted my in game settings to medium and got significantly more frames on my older pc which has less power than your system.
