I got a new desktop to play games but everygame i play is laggy and choppy. Ive tried bit trip runner, portal 2, and minecraft and all of them are choppy on the lowest settings. My desktop is a AMD Athlon II x4 645 quad-core processor with 4gb DDR3 memory. What I dont understand is I had a previous laptop that was only duel core processor and it ran alright with all three games but its worse on my desktop! :(

Does anyone know what im doing wrong?

I'm not sure on the graphics card, but you can try and see if your drivers are up to date.

Return it and go to Computer Hardware for a proper build.

Sounds like it has integrated graphics.

Well i was hoping i didnt have to because it will cost about 35 bucks to return. I think it just needs a better video or graphics card but idk :/

You can't get a $300 gaming computer at all, but you can possibly buy a graphics card for $200 and install it to your current desktop.
