Hi I've just installed an AMD A10 6800k quadcore processor and 8GB of ram i've just done a check with pc wizard and it's saying i'm using that (the amd) as a graphics card even though i have an nvidia one plugged in but i don't have the box for the nvidia one does anyone know how i can switch between the two or even use both iif that is possible because i'm pretty sure my nvidia card is a good one! also i just ran a "can i run it" check on battlefield 4 and it faild because it says i have only 3.6GB of ram also Call of duty ghosts wont run because it says i dont meet the ram requirements can some one please help? because pc wizard and the box my ram came out of both say 2x4GB

First thing's first: Are you running a 32-bit or 64-bit Operating system? I assume Windows, so try checking the following:

Start>Right click computer>properties

This will let you know if you're running 32-bit or 64-bit.
=====
For your graphics card, the processor will only be used if you're plugged into the onboard videos port. Since you have an add-on graphics card, can you check just to make certain you plugged the monitor cord into the add on card as opposed to the onboard graphics port?

plug your screen into your gfx output port not your motherboard.

Random pic I grabbed off the web.

If your video cable to your monitor is plugged in the red circle area, you need to move it to the yellow circle area. I know it isn't the same as your PC, but the areas will be similar enough.

Which slots are your RAM Seated in? I hear it can cause issue if they're both in different colored RAM slots.
