You failed to list any of the other specs

your problem is your gpu is barebones, good for little more then opening webpages, playing flash games and working on spreadsheets.

Evidenced by the low cpu usage on a cpu intensive game, your bottleneck is 100% your low end GPU

don't know what to tell you, except lower your resolution as low as it will go... if that doesn't help, then you're SOL without a better gpu.

Then the answer should be obvious; you need a better GPU

660ti or 670

also, you claim to have 10 gb of ram. Thats an odd number; DDR3 should be used in pairs to achieve dual channel

Well, that system has a 300W PSU so you're really limited to the lower power gpus...

the lowest level gpu for gaming i'd ever buy would be a GTX 650 or a HD 7750, the performance dropoff on the lower number cards is too great to call them "gamer" cards. With the HD 7770 now going for less then $100 i'd call that of the the best deals you can get for a gaming capable gpu, and should match your system pretty well. If you can scratch together a few more bucks you could go with a 7790 at $130

I'm hesitant to suggest anything more then the 7790... because of your small no name and questionable 300W psu... with a psu that small and unknown, suggesting you put a gpu with a higher TDP then 100W is almost impossible.

He has a HP Pavilion HPE h8-1234 (thank you google), that is all part of the questionable package that HP threw together. He also has a no name 300W psu... so i think those gpus are out.

the h8-1414 and the hpe-1234 are basically the same pc... the envy gets some cool peripherals, but otherwise it's the same pc. Same 300W psu... same motherboard, same gpu, same cpu... so on and so forth

and yes... you're probably stuck with a sub 100W gpu. The best sub 100W gpu is probably the 7790... if you want something cheaper a 7770 can be had for $90 or so.

Actually it was this thread that made me go out and pull the trigger on an MSI 7770 OC/GHz Edition... got it for $84... plus FarCry3 & the expansion.

Simply too good a deal to pass up for a voltage unlocked gpu (and a very nice step up from my ancient 9800gt, runs 30C cooler, quieter, about 40% better performing and less power draw). If AMD ever figures out their xfire issues it might not be a bad idea to pop a 2nd into my system... those prices are nuts

(not that i EVER would buy an AMD gpu with xfire in mind, or suggest anyone get a low end gpu with xfire in mind, just talking to myself mostly).
