My computer has a quad core proccessor,GeForce GT610 graphic card, 4gb ram , 600w of power why cant i run games on good settings with good fps. i cant run fallout new vegas even on the lowest setting with out some lag issues. I just dont understand what else do i need to put into this machine to allow me to run first person shooters and other games at decent/ enjoyable settings. When i turn down my resolution it helps but i want that to be on the best setting as well.

Your graphics card is very poor. Also, what you can try and do is reduce the resolution (If you're on 1920x1080) to at least 1280x720 or below. Reduce Anti-Aliasing and other stuff and fps will increase. Hope this helps :)

see, your gpu is quite weak and cannot handle games at ultra, and if you want to play games at ultra , then buy a new gpu . probably gtx 650ti boost
or something like that. And i will upgrade the ram to 8gb.

GT 610 is not a gaming card, its low end, you need a better graphics card, something like a gtx 650 at least.

Your graphics card is too weak. Consider something decent like a 7790, 7850 or gtx 650ti boost, but this depends on your budget

And exactly what quad core processor do you have ?

what are the rest of your specs? cpu? motherboard?
As others suggest you need a new gaphics card, something like an AMD 7770 or nvidia gtx650ti or better would work a treat if your budget is low, they are pretty much base level gaming cards, but are more than adequate for fallout. anything lower i would not consider a gaming card. If you want to play at your max resolution (i'll assume its 1080p) you really want a 2gb gtx660 or amd 7870 or better for medium-high detail settings depending on the game. the 4gb ram you have is a problem too, 8gb will make games run a lot smoother with less loading from HDD during the game. But your cpu could be a problem too, there are many quad core cpu's, not all of them are good for gaming.

I have the AMD Athon ii 640 processor that runs 3.00GHz not sure about my mother board i have an HP Pavillion P6000 series if that helps. But pretty much i just need a better graphics card to improve my games that sucks considering the guy at best buy recommended that one to me.

The 7770 or 7790 would probably be best. Anything higher, and you might experience some bottlenecking issues

Ok thanks for the help. Also should I leave my old card in there even when I do upgrade because I noticed my mother board has multiple PCI slots
So I figure it couldn't hurt to also leave the old one in there

No, you cant mix AMD and Nvidia gpu's. You will have to remove the old one

By the way, What motherboard is it ?

remove the old card, just bogging down the bus speed on your moptherboard and putting more strain on power by leaving the old one in there. not to mention you might experience some compatability issues by having 2 different brand cards installed. i always recommend using driversweeper to remove any traces of old drivers when switching graphics cards, it removes the drivers and registry entries that can cause conflicts.
