hi,

your CPU is fine, but your graphics card is really a low-end one.
What games are you trying to run? and at what resolution?

you're welcome!
don't expect major performance with the Radeon HD 5450, it is really a basic card. However it should be more than enough for these games... What resoultion are you currently using?

Also have you tried to update AMD Catalyst drivers? These are the link to update them:

for Windows 7 32 BIT ONLY: AMD Catalyst
for Windows 7 64 BIT ONLY: AMD Catalyst

download and install "Catalyst Software Suite"
