  1. Simply put, it's your graphics card. Performance wise, the ATI 5450 cannot compare to the HD48xx/GeForce 9800 series. This chart should help show you what I mean, graphics card hierarchy. If you want to run High settings, you'll probably need at least an ATI HD 5770/Nvidia GTX 260.
  2. WHat is the resolution of your display? Seems like it is too hot for the 5450 to handle.

    Yea 5450 is not as powerful as 9800 or 4800, you need a better card or you have to run the in lower settings.
