Like i don't know what the problem is! I bought this pc for mainly video recording because i saw how many cores it has. I can run games but they aren't at the best settings. I had a duo core PC before this and everything loaded up faster and smoother. Now it's just a waiting game.
if it under 30 days send the cpu and mb back..pay a restocking fee and then pick up an intel cpu. if not make sure you have the newest bios on the mb..if you have an ssd make sure you have the firmware on that updated and are using the newest mb chipset drivers. also use cpu-z and see what speed your ram is running at on a pc you have to turn on xmp profile to get your ram to max out. on an amd mb you might have to tweek the dram speed. the spd tab on cpu-z will show you the max speed you ram can run at and it voltage.
Thanks morgan for backing me up lol....
AMD isn't that bad, i was just expecting more out of this PC build. Also, i had a windows 7 installation CD from my Dell pc. It includes the drivers for dell in it. Can that be the problem? Plus the ram?
dell os image...bloatware....if you just installed it if you dont mine formatting your hard drive try the free windows 8 beta and see if your games play better then the dell image. (just make sure you download the newest mb and other drivers onto a usb stick so that when you install windows 8 you have them.
