    Since you have not listed a graphics card, I'm assuming you only have the Intel Integrated Graphics built into your CPU. The Intel GPU is pretty bad for gaming and you won't get good framerate on anything except for old games and games with extremely modest hardware requirements. Can you check what kind of power supply your system has, eg. brand and wattage, that will help if you want a recommendation for a graphics card.

    Edit, googled the computer, you do have a graphics card, but it's the DDR3 version of the GT 640, which is marginally faster than the integrated graphics. Either way, you need a GPU upgrade if you want good gaming performance.
  2. Yeah, a GPU like the GT 640 is going to hamper performance big time.
  3. GT640 is meh for gaming! So does the iGPU in the i7.

    You need something at least R9 270 or higher to do real enjoyable gaming.
    Pay attention about the PSU before upgrading the GPU, I can not find the PSU specs.

    Can you recommend anything to me?
    Oh and by the way my GPU is an NVIDIA Geforce GT 640
