Hello, Recently built my first pc (very new to this) works well on most games but when running counter strike g.o i'm getting quite low fps around 40. Wondering if this is down to my graphics card or could be something else ? as this is the newest game I run, if so can anyone suggest a reasonable price gfx card about 100-150 that will perform better.
PC Spec
AMD Bulldozer FX-8120 Black Edition 3.10GHz Eight Core Processor
2x Mushkin Enhanced Essentials 4GB DDR3 1333MHZ Memory Module
Gigabyte GA-M68MT-S2 Motherboard
Asus AMD Radeon HD 6570 1GB Graphics Card
650W Powercool

Would appreciate any suggestions at all to how i may improve this,

Thanks,
Luke

It is a very simple solution why you are getting low FPS. That graphics card is a bit small for everything else on the build. If you want the cheapest card that handles about everything very well it's the 7870 GHz edition. You can pick one up for $200-$250 depending on manufacturer. Your processor is decent, RAM is a bit slow but shouldn't impact FPS, and the motherboard is okay. Don't know where you found your motherboard though. It's discontinued :lol:

You are probably going to want a new graphics card.
