I got a new pc with the following specs last week :

Intel Core i5 3450 @ 3.10GHz
Corsair Vengeance 8.00 GB Dual-Channel DDR3 @ 666MHz (9-9-9-24)
ASRock Z77 Extreme4 (CPUSocket)
DELL ST2210 (1920x1080@60Hz)
AMD Radeon HD 6450 (ATI AIB) 2 GB DDR3
298GB Seagate ST3320613AS ATA Device (SATA)

I checked a few games on Can you run it and for saints row and gta 4 and dirt 3 my pc has enough to make them work smooth! But im so irritated i tried every game but wasnt getting fps more than 10-15! Its really annoying and my whole experience is ruined! Please help guys!
Thanks!

Hi :) 

That is a very low end graphics card , we sell them for £80...

Buy a better card ...think £300 PLUS...

All the best Brett :)

I have an AMD 6850 which i paid £80 for and i play most games on high and assassins creed 2(brotherhood, revelations), medal of honour, crysis and many others on max. It depends on your budget and personal preferences on how much you want to spend. Everything else on your system is top spec so you could get anything from a £80 card to £500. How much do you want to spend?

Try to update your drivers. The same thing was happening to me with my 6670, and I installed the latest drivers from the AMD website, and it worked great! (Went from 15fps back to 40+ on Deus EX)

Thanks a lot guys! I'm thinking ill save up for a while and then buy a kickass graphics card! I want one which can play the newer games on ultra settings! I bought this hd6450 like a fool and now i regret it! its so irritating that i have everything to have a nice gaming experience except the gpu! How's the xfx radeon 7970?

I call bull on the video, or it's at lowest everything including resolution. also note it is single player which is less demanding.

@Brett You charge £80 for that card? What the ***, man?

@Irie I believe he is lying. All you need is a better card. The 7770 should be coming down to around £70, so that might be a good buy. Though the 6850 is £100 (£90 if you buy noisy reference models)
