Well, Since the graphics is integrated into your cpu. it means your cpu is overheating to. The only thing you could put in for a processor that would be better is
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Which would also have better integrated graphics, you could also add a 6670 for crossfire. or go with a better gpu all together.

a decent brand 400+ should be ok unless you really feel like putting a high end gpu in. something like the corsair cx430 would work great.

Also if you wanted to get the best performance just out of your processor with the integrated graphics, you could upgrade your ram to 1866Mhz

Why do you say it is overheating? Like the computer fans are extremely noisy and the game is still slow?

you said your 7560d is overheating correct? well your processor and your graphics card are the same chip, so if one is overheating, so isnt the other.

Can I ask a maybe stupid question(I am just getting into this gaming stuff so quit ignorant). my computer is only 4 mo old also.

Well if its overheating, you might want to check and see if all your fans are working. And that you have adequate air flow. It might be as simple as changing a fan.

The simplest solution is to install a discrete Radeon HD 7750 graphics card. You shouldn't even need a power supply upgrade using this graphics card model.

It'll remove the integrated graphics processor out of the heat load of the AMD APU altogether.

Hmmm... I thought I answered your question in a different thread...

As stated in the other thread, the best graphics card you can buy is the Radeon HD 7750 for $100. Yes, it is probably not included on EA's website of "officially supported" graphics cards, it will be compatible. The "7700" and "7800" refers to the Radeon HD 77xx and 78xx series graphic cards because the is no such thing as a Radeon HD 7700 or 7800 graphic cards. "7700" refers to the Radeon HD 7750, HD 7770 and the soon to be released HD 7790. "7800" refers to both Radeon HD 7850 and HD 7870 graphic cards.

The Radeon HD 7750 and HD 6670 will work fine with a 300w power supply. The HD 6670 is less expensive than the HD 7750 (but not by too much), however the HD 7750 is significantly more powerful than the HD 6670.

The Radeon HD 7750 is fully backward compatible with your motherboard's PCI Express x16 (Gen 2.0) slot.

That graphics card will only fit in a PCIe x16 slot so you don't have any options. Your motherboard only has one PCIe x16 slot so the chances of you inserting it into an incorrect slot is nil.
