Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit
Memory: 10GB DDR3 RAM
Processor: AMD FX 6120 6 core
GPU: Radeon HD 7450
Display: 1920 x 1080
So first of all, I am well aware of the benchmarks on my GPU and processor and I understand that my GPU is a pretty low end card (processor isn't the greatest either but I know that's not what is bottlenecking my system) so with that being said, I'm not expecting to run Crysis 3 or Skyrim at 1080 res on full detail or anything like that...
But I am still wondering if my system should be performing better than it is...
For instance, in Sniper Elite V2: Nazi Zombie Army I have to lower every detail setting, disable any type of graphics enhancemnt and drop the screen resolition just to achieve 20 fps not in combat, In combat it's around 10 fps. And the system requirements for this game in particular are kind of low...
- Processor: Dual-core CPU with SSE3 (Intel® Pentium® D 3GHz / AMD Athlon™ 64 X2 4200) or better
- Memory: 2GB
- Hard Disk Space: 5GB of free drive space
- Video Card: Microsoft® DirectX® 10.0 compatible graphics card with 256 MB of memory (NVIDIA® GeForce® 8800 series / ATI Radeon™ HD 3870) or better
Anyway, like I said, I know I need a GPU upgrade for sure but in the mean time this is all I have to deal with. So is this performance in games to be expected or should I be getting a little more fps in games with all detail set to low?
