Thanks for the additional assistance iammykyl  :thumbsup:

 

ok i took out my graphics card and now im getting even lower fps like 20-30 more

 

 

Suggests that there is nothing physically wrong with your add on video card.

 

Yes I'm using the pc for the same stuff before the upgrade 

 

 

Acknowledged.

 

I was comparing is my fps on CS:GO,

 

You would benefit from having a better video card but comparing fps using an internet facility such as CS:GO is not a good idea as the quality and speed of the internet connection can have an affect on the results, a better test would be to download and run Unigene Valley Benchmark (free) download from here

 

the PSU is a DELL L300NM-01

 

The best card that you could use with the present PSU is a GTX 750Ti but only if there is adequate room inside the case, your computer case is the mini tower type and the present video card the GT 730 is available as both low profile and full height versions, we need to know the type that you have so we have an idea of the dimensions of card that will fit inside your case.

 

We could do with checking out your present hardware and software to see if there is anything that could be affecting the performance, see below;

 

Download then run Speccy (free) and post the resultant url for us, details here,  this will provide us with information about your computer hardware + any software that you have installed that may explain the present issue/s.

Is the video card here the same as yours.

 

Observations from Speccy;

 

The +5V rail reading on the PSU is shown to be out of wack, this can be caused by Dells own software but if you keep the the present PSU we should look at the voltages further.

 

Windows is out of date and needs to be fully updated to help protect you from malware.

 

You have the following software installed that will slow down your internet connection;

 

McAfee Application Installer Cleanup (0094461413483074)
McAfee Security Scan Component Host Service

 

 

You have the following software installed which is at best a gimmick and at worst a danger to your OS;
 
 
Razer Game Booster 

 

 

 

Below is one users verdict on it;

Pros

i swear by the beard of almighty Zeus that this fine piece of software no other "gamer booster" could not load any more annoying adware and other malware on to your pc than 'Razer Game Booster', i mean, i almost had to reinstall windows completely! if you want to be pxxxxd off to the point where you want to physically harm the people you put this together then well.. look no further.

Cons

Well if i had to choose one this wrong with this... 
neurowise and Advance Elite are ******* soul crushing sneaky adware programs and all but they could do more i feel.

Summary

if you hate your pc and yourself, download this and the 'great' bundled programs that come with it

 

Read the blog here for reasons why you should avoid such so called system boosters.

The present video card is entry level and best suited for office type work and internet browsing, no wonder you are having issues with such a good CPU.

 

Upgrading the PSU will not help unless the video card is also upgraded.

 

We can come back to your Windows issues another time.

 

Did you try Valley Benchmark, if yes, how did it go.

Definitely need a GPU upgrade, see canned text below;

 

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.

 

 

You need to measure how much room you have inside of the case for any add on video card and the dimensions of the present PSU.
