New to PC stuff. need some help

Postby ROFLCOPTER » Thu Apr 25, 2013 5:29 pm

My pc right now runs games pretty well but some games its terrible on. It runs skyrim,minecraft,killingfloor,deadspace 3 all fine and on ultra but its terrible whenever i play dayz i usually get 17-30 fps on dayz but rarely ever get 30.
my current build right now is:
AMD A6 500k
AMD Radeon HD 7560D
RAM: 6gb
1T Harddrive
....
i am thinking about getting the
Galaxy - GeForce GT 640 Graphic Card(the 1gb DDR3).
will this help with games much more?

Welcome to the motherboards.org...

I presume you are using the video on the AMD APU and not a separate video card?
If so, then have you updated all your drivers, updated windows? If other games are running OK then the game itself is the issue and may need updating itself.

Is that the mod for Arma 2 or the standalone version of DayZ that you are running?

what make/model psu you got? sometimes the branded systems will struggle if you put much more hardware in them than what they came with.

and i'd suggest this card over a 640...

HP Pavilion - ditch the PSU first and foremost that came with the system and up it to a decently branded one, ie Corsair, OCZ, Antec and the ilk and get a minimum of 750w. The gintense graphics of some games can cause the video to stutter because it may lack enough actual power from the PSU and fall over, even with inbuilt and onboard. I will also say something on that CPU you that may or may not work with the core voltage, but you need a decent power supply.
