AMD A8–6600K Quad-Core 4.2Ghz,

  1. Best answer
    Did you install the latest Graphics drivers and Direct X?
  2. you should of got 8gbs of ram and a r9 270 for 169 dollars gddr3 can still run things but its outdated and will perform slightly worse. apus are not meant for gaming also so you should of got a fx 6300 but lets not regret decisions now unless you can return. Try updating drivers from the WEBSITE dvds are notrouis for not having the latest drivers and when not uninstalled cause problems
  3. What settings are you trying these games on?
    If it helps turn down the shadows and the AA.
  4. yeah on a r7 seiries ultra is not possible with out sacrfice(msaa,shadows,detail,res. etc) on a 250 you should go full hd,no AA,if tresselation select none, quality med or low and play around a little more
  5. Try Playing the games on Default Settings if it dosent work then turn of the shadows and lower anti-analysing

    oops pressed the wrong button, well it seems stupid but seeing as i had it made by someone then i assumed they had installed the latest drivers, but its well worth checking so ill do that now.
