Hi I just built my new pc it has 8gb ram, AMD Fx Quad Core Processor (3.80Ghz) Running a 64bit Windows 8 OS,AMD Radeon HD 6450

That's my specifications and a lot of my games like Battlefield 4, Bioshock Infinite and The walking dead survival instinct all still really laggy

Help!

Radeon HD 6450 is a weak GPU. Try lowering image quality as well as resolution. In case you haven't done it yet, update you GPU driver.

Hi, What is the WE Index for RAM, CPU and graphics?

The HD6450 is a HTPC card, not a gaming card. In ascending order of performance (and price), upgrade to one of these:
HD6670 < HD7750 < HD7770 < GTX650Ti < HD7790 < HD7850 <= GTX650Ti Boost Edition.
If your budget limits you to the HD7750 or lower, make sure you get a version with GDDR5. The DDR3 versions are slow abominations.
The HD7770 and above all need a single 6-pin PCIe power connection. A 380W Antec Earthwatts PSU could run any of these; a "600W" Logisys or similar PSU-shaped object might be able to handle a HD7770, but could die randomly anyway, possibly taking other parts with it into the fiery abyss.

The WEI is not considered a good measure of performance. Better would be to check benchmarks of games. You will see that in new FPS games (e.g. BF4), the HD6450 may be playable (sufferable?) on low settings at no higher than 720p resolution.

Not a good measure, I agree, but it can give a hint about the hardware causing the lag.

As stated above, you need a better graphics card.

Also remember to get a power supply to support any new gpu you buy!

What PSU do you have? Chances are, it can support a HD6670 or HD7750.
