need help figuring out how to make games run faster

Recently I acquired a new computer. Compared to my old one, it's miles better. The main reason I bought the computer was to be able to play games better, and since I'm running on a relatively low budget, this computer got more bang for my buck. It has an AMD A10-7800 Radeon R7, 12 Computer Cores 4C +8G 3.50GZ Processor, with 8GB of RAM.

Now, I am a complete newbie to computers, and a lot of it doesn't make sense to me. I've downloaded some games, and while they play better than on my previous computer, they're still quite slow. I've done some research online and I know that getting more RAM, a Graphics card can help make games run faster, but I'm still at a loss. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Sample games that'd I'd like to be able to play Fast (and have the support to use mods that would enhance the game's looks) are Skyrim, Minecraft, The Witcher 3, etc.

What Graphics Cards are good that'd run well with my computer and are priced fairly? I'm on a budget at around ~$100ish, but I'd like to go lower if possible. Same thing goes for the RAM cards as well. Thanks in advance!

  1. The most crucial matter for running games is graphics card. 8 gb of ram will do. Go for the RX 460. I doubt you will find a better card at this budget. You should be able to play most modern games above 60 fps on medium-high

    you are asking too much from what you have

    the a10 with a rx 460 is entry level

    reduce settings, limit mods


    you dont have a ultra, or even high settings pc


    start at medium settings and tweak to get playable fps. Eliminate AA, reduce shadows to low, things like this


    $100 gets you nothing , put it towards a new build
