  1. Update windows .Automatically detect and install latest best driver and fix all issues.
    Update bios.
    Update hdd/ssd firmware.
    Full Scan system with "SUPERANTISPYWARE" Freeware.
    If all done then u get same isseu means u r system is slow.
  2. The AMD Radeon HD 7450 is what is holding your system back.
  3. Upgrading branded system is waste of money.
    if u want to upgrade gpu then power supply is not enough so upgrade psu then mobo is not enough to fullyutilise and handle the gpu so update mobo.
    if u remove the door of the cabinet in branded items they dont accept and give warenty.
  4. I'm not sure if hytecgowthaman is talking about computers or home remodeling ... but with that graphics card "AMD Radeon HD 7450" you will not get decent frame rates in Battlefield 3 no matter which graphics drivers, BIOS updates, or door of the cabinet you use.

    The 7450 is definitely holding you back. I would buy the 7750, because it doesn't require any additional power from your power supply. Otherwise you will probably need to upgrade the PSU to install a faster/better GPU than the one listed below.

    $107 - $10 MIRc = $97!!

    Here's Tom's review of the AMD 7750.

    Make sure if you buy the AMD 7750 that you get the DDR5 version and not the DDR3 version. The one I linked is the DDR5 version.
