You can get better fps by getting a better processor. You clearly have a CPU bottleneck. That is why changing the video settings doesn't change the fps.

Your cpu is way too slow to play those games.

For $200 you can get a new cpu/motherboad/8GB ram

My Athlon II X2 245 2.9ghz with 6670 is bottlenecking no matter what settings i threw.

I've upgraded to an i3-2120 and i got a big boost.

______________________________

Sorry but you got to buy a new motherboard to upgrade.

Athlon II X4, Phenom II X4 965 or FX-4100 will do.

Phenom II X4 965 3.4Ghz - $99

any recommendation on amd processor


No not really, Intel is far superior for gaming.

If you have to go AMD, get the FX-4170 or PII 965BE. However these are very power hungry and inferior cpu's to even the slowest Intel quad.

Actually they are not, and what I suggested fits your budget perfectly.

If you want to go AMD, go for FX4170 or P2 965BE, it'll be the same price or more than what I suggested.
