Hi, firstly i should mention i am new to Pc's so dont know a lot but will provide as much info as i can. I have just bought a gaming PC with the following specs; AMD 6600k quad core processor (3.9Ghz) AMD HD8570D graphics 16GB RAM (1600Mhz) 1TB Hard drive

The problem i have is the PC seems to play games very slowly (about 20FPS) on medium and high settings. The games i have used so far are Arma 2 (with all the expansions including DayZ), Euro truck simulator 2, War thunder and 7 days to die. I was given the latest drivers with the PC and even downloaded them off the AMD website to make sure it was up to date. I have also tried altering settings in the AMD catalyst control center and in game but still no luck. I should also mention i went into the BIOS and the screen was very glitchy and became even worse with each option i clicked, until it froze. i hope someone has some ideas what could be wrong and could help me out, thanks!

Thanks for the response. A friend of mine told me it should be up to scratch but having a quick look on some reviews i can see there are definately better options. Thanks again!

Do you think that an Nvidia GeForce GTX 650Ti 2GB GDDR5 would be sufficient for most modern games?

Yes or the gtx 660 2gb

What PSU do you have? You need to be sure that it can cope with a better card.
