Need some help with my build

So I recently got the nvidia GeForce gtx 1050ti and my games are working much better now! They don't work well necessarily but I can actually play them (previously I would get a max of 16fps in most higher end games). So I guess my question now is how can I make them work even better? I'm not sure if they're still not quite running great because the 1050ti isn't good enough or because other parts aren't good enough. While in game, my computer is laggy, I usually run at 28-31 fps during intense fights, and I get lag spikes and slow world load times. Is that because of my graphics card, my processor, etc. I can upload my computers specs from my control panel if necessary

  1. Upload your Specs :/

  2. I'm just gonna go ahead and apologize as the hardware side of computers baffles me a little, but I'll try to get my specs up as best I can. As I said I have a 1050ti graphics card, 8RAM, and an AMD a4 7300 with Radeon hd graphics processor. I think that's everything, if not just let me know and I'll get that too

    Edit: I also looked into overclocking but after watching about an hours worth of YouTube tutorials on the subject I was still just as confused as before so maybe overclocking it could help?

    I would say your cpu ( AMD a4 7300) is bottle necking your new graphic card, the old way your going to get better frames is to upgrade probably to a recent gen quad core cpu.
    Oh and dont bother overclocking with that cpu its not going to help much.

  4. So what would you recommend? It's hard for me to pick out these parts because I can never seem to find comparisons. For example with my new graphics card it was very hard to find any differences (besides price) between 1050ti and 1080 and 960 etc etc. so I guess what I'm asking is what and processor would be able to handle my graphics card and running top tier games at at least 60fps

    They might look fairly similar but i assure you that gc run very differently to each other. What you have (the 1050ti) is what would be considered a low to mid range current generation, attempt to match this with a processor that a bit better.
    I would recommend a new mobo for one so you can fit the current gen cpus in (A10-6800K is the best cpu you can fit in your current mobo)
    When buying the mobo you have to decide on if you want an amd cpu (tend to be quite cheaper) or and intel which generally just run a bit better. You need to get and am4 socket for amd or LGA 1151 for intell.
    In terms of cpus then i would go for a ryzen 5 there and a few different types its worth looking into them and for the intel side i would suggest an i5-7400/7500.
