Maybe some more RAM (8gb). It shouldn't be too expensive. http://www.crucial.c...drammemory.aspx

Also, seeing as your graphics card score is a 4.4, you might want to upgrade that too. I'm not exactly a graphics specialist, so I'm not sure what exactly I can offer for options there. :(

My graphics card is currently a built in one which comes with the APU. You mean change my that or install a graphics card?
Thanks for the suggestion anyway.

You need a dedicated card and you'll be golden. After that you can get 8GB of RAM for extra playing room.

I would also wipe your HDD and start over your partitions. As they are currently, I'm not a fan. I'd rather have one big partition than three small ones.

Do you have a specific budget?

A dedicated GPU, SSD, another 4-8GBs of RAM, etc... are all good options.

A storage upgrade looks like it would be appreciated. Depending on what you're doing exactly, a new graphics card (and power supply upgrade) may be a good follow-up. After that, more RAM.
