Windows 7: Upgrade question

26 Feb 2015   #1

Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1
Upgrade question

I am running Windows 7 Home Premium 64 bit SP1 AMD E 300 with Radeon HD 6310 Graphics.
I would like to be able to play a few of the newer PC games but when I try they seem to stutter and do not run smoothly.
Do I need to install a better graphics card? If so can someone recommend what kind I could buy and install without a high cost?
Thank you for any advice.

Hi, Welcome to Seven forums.

First of all I will like to talk about your current GPU (HD 6310). It is not meant for modern games and will sure stutter.

Now, if you can update your system specs. This way we will be able to understand what kind of CPU, motherboard, cabinet and PSU you are using. What is the budget you are planning to spend on the hardware. As just upgrading your GPU might not help you achieve what you are looking for.

Keep us posted.

It would require you a newer system since that AMD E 300 is an embedded CPU. Ask the experts for the parts as I'm not good at it
