It's normal, that pc has a really low end card even for those games, it's more like a htpc card than a gaming one, you need a much better card and a new psu for it(the one in that pre build is only 350W and a generic psu) if you want more fps.

I don't think you can return it based on the performance, since it was explicit what was the graphic card, but if you can yes, it will be going with a one with a better gfx card, if you can't you have to deal with it, you can always add a better card with a new psu(required), if you can afford it.

I wouldnt have been able to afford it but I have called newegg and they said I can switch it for store credit so can you send me a link to a computer that I should buy

You don't need the i7, look for a pc with the i5 cpu or the with amd FX-6300/FX-83xx(if it's cheaper, those are good cpus, as long as it's from the piledriver architecture)and a 660 gtx from nvidia or 7870 from amd if you can afford it.
February 23, 2013 1:21:04 AM

Well all my friends tell me to get i7 because its the best processor and I heard all amd sucks and that nvidia was the best graphics card

For gaming, you don't need more than the i5, the hyper threading of the i7 doesn't help in gaming, for gaming what you need is a better gpu, even an i3 + 660 gtx is miles better than an i7+7770/650 gtx.
So you need to look after a good card, amd cards nowadays offers decent drivers, nvidia still has better drivers, but there's nothing wrong with going with amd cards, if it's cheaper and better, usually they have good cards in terms of performance per dollar, with the 7870/7870 tahiti le and 7950/7970.

Well I dont know what to buy I want to buy a computer that can handle modern games like skyrim and black ops 2 with at least medium graphics with 60 fps but I dont think I can do it with my money I have about 900$ to offer
February 23, 2013 1:37:00 AM

would it be worth just upgrading my current computer to 660 nvidia
February 23, 2013 1:59:56 AM

well by about 900$ I meant like 850$
February 23, 2013 2:11:28 AM

what amd graphics card would be equal to a nvidia

The 7870 is slightly better than the 660 gtx.
The 7870 tahiti le/7950 is about the same as a 660 ti.
February 23, 2013 2:22:37 AM

well If I was gonna buy a computer that is I5 with a 660 graphics card wouldnt it be just the same to upgrade my graphics card on my current computer because I dont really wanna waste my time with shipping and all the stuff I have to do if I am just doing pretty much the same thing

You need to upgrade the psu in your current pc, so you need ~200$ for the gpu and ~40-45$ for the psu.
February 23, 2013 2:26:05 AM

like was said earlier you'll need a new PSU and GPU, probably cost more than you want to spend considering the 660ti is ~$300-350 on its own.

Yes, but you need a new power supply the one you have in the pc is a generic 350W psu, you need a better psu, within 500W and from brands like corsair,xfx,seasonic,antec,pc power and cooling,fsp,enermax,etc.
February 23, 2013 2:43:38 AM

well Is there a computer with I5 or I7 with any nvidia graphics card and good psu for around 750$

Nope, you won't find with an i5 and a 660 gtx, i suggest buying the parts and assemble it yourself or for newegg to assemble it.
February 23, 2013 4:25:34 AM

How much will that cost and I meant a i5 or i7 with ANY nvidia graphics card so I can upgrade to a 660 nvidia
February 23, 2013 4:44:20 AM

Is there something I can use to like pick the parts or do I just have to buy them all indivdually?

You have to buy them individually.
February 23, 2013 4:51:42 AM

how do I get newegg to make it
a b 4 Gaming
February 23, 2013 4:55:46 AM

You have to put in a local shop to assemble, idk if newegg will do it, but it will still be cheaper.
Yes, that's a good tool to look for parts.
Here's what you can get for ~800$ : http://pcpartpicker.com/p/FmAN
February 23, 2013 6:57:35 AM

Well I can only buy from newegg because my return is only in store credit
