A4-5300 doesn't support Dual Graphics. 

After reading about the low performance increase of Dual Graphics I invested in a Discrete Card which disabled my onboard GPU. The performance gain was more satisfactory.

Had a A8-5500 in my system when I got it, I have added an upgrade to the PSU, A10 and a discrete card. 

System does really well in benchmarks, games and work stuff.
