    Alright so I'm having computer problems. Specs: 16gb of ram a AMD FX-6300 6 core processor and a Nvidia Geforce 7025(built on to the motherboard). (I built this Computer Myself and im running windows 7) I have also installed avast. It is fine surfing the webs but when it comes to games it only gets around 10-30 frames per second. I think its the graphics card but can anyone else confirm this or maybe have ideas?

    Hi there Napkins94 and I have to say that's a nice build. I'm not a gamer; there are others here who are better in that arena.
    They'll be chiming in.

    In the meantime, please run Speccy and post the log. It'll let us know what's in your system.

    Hi Mapkins94 and welcome to the site. I agree with Tony D nice build.

    Has this been happening long or something that just started?

    What games are you playing and what do you have the graphic setting?
    Have you tried turning off different setting like shadowing and reflection. Also try lowering the detail some and see if that helps.

    On Board graphics usual share a small amount of the RAM you have. Most of the time it is a small amount like 256 MB to 512 MB. You should update that if you want to play some of the higher end games.

    Hello Mapkins94. That motherboard you are using is actually the past remnants of the older nVidia Nforce4 chipset, which was really an Nforce3, which in turn was really an Nforce2 chipset simply modified over time to accommodate new processors. The Built in-GPU (7025) is very basic anymore, and in fact is weaker than the i-GPU on an older Intel I5 2500k.

    You will want to get yourself a dedicated graphics card if you care to game with good frame rates just be sure you install (or have installed) a power supply to handle a dedicated PCI Express graphics card. You have a good CPU you simply need that dedicated GPU (graphics processing unit). Even something like a GTX 750ti would blow you away with the difference, and it will bring your system up to a far more modern and capable unit in terms of gaming

    I will 2nd what William has said. Upgrade/update the GPU & (that) coupled w/ the rest of the existing system, the result should be WAY better. Nvidia or ATI mid to high end. A good dedicated card will make all the difference needed & wanted & well worth the few dollars.

    Also, as an aside, you will find your gaming experience greatly enhanced & improved once you have migrated to Windows 10 (before the end of July, of course).

    With DirectX 12 in Windows 10, every single one of your cores can talk to your graphics card simultaneously,
    so that alone will be a huge performance boost for Gamers.

    In fact, the feedback coming from gamers running Win 10 does, indeed, support this whether ones reads what they have to say (report) or in person... they do praise the Win 10 gaming experience as being much better than they had w/ prior OSs.

    by default windows wont activate all cores on the pc so its a good thing to check if there all running
    so you get max performance from your pc the video card can make use of it

    For those that are not sure of the path:

    Start > msconfig > Boot > Advanced Options

    In Windows7. Presume other OS's are the same path.
