Issues i am having:

 

I get about 10 fps on games like euro truck simulator 2 at bad looking setting's.

On games like Prison Architect i get issues when my Prison Get's so large I get unplayable lag.

I also want to stream game's to twitch but my PC just won't handle it on games like Euro Truck Simulator 2 I get like 5 FPS

 

I want a cost effective solution which can be done with £100 as i don't get much income from my paper round at £2 a week.

Please suggest a cheap solution as i just can't play games at 10 fps no more.

Your GPU is outdated mate although I'm not yet sure that this is the issue, since it can also point out that your RAM is not enough. 

 

Has it always been performing this poor? or you did something that may have drastically decreased your performance?

 

Also I am assuming that the temps you posted are under idle, would you mind posting the temps while under load? Cheers!

With a heavy load while gaming i get a 4 degrees increase on these temp's nothing more.

 

I did use compressed air to clean it out and added Paste to the CPU last month.

 

Also i have 4GB of RAM now this list is 2 week's old nothing else is different.

Please..,do NOT use the Quote button respond...use one of the Reply buttons, thank you - Hamluis.
 

Please answer my other question please :P Has this been going on since you started playing the said games? Or, were you able to play it before, without any issues but somehow along the way, this happened?

 

Do you remember doing something different, like installing a software or updating a driver before the FPS drop issue?

It has stayed laggy like this since i had the machine nothing really decreased.

 

I had a laptop before this still got it. It had a Intel celeron m 575  and 2GB ram If i try to play the games on that i would have like 5 fps.

 

So i got this machine thinking it would be better but sometime's the odd drop in frame's messes up the gameplay. So i thinking of a upgrade.

this frame rate drop could be attributable to a number of things.

 

if you pull up your task manager, it will deduct a few variables.

 

you are looking for cpu usage and ram usage during these peformance drops. if your ram is maxed out, that drags everything  when hard drive paging begins. if your dual core cpu gets maxed and taxed, that is another bum deal.

 

but then if that checks out and you have capacity left on those two , then the video card is a variable that can be responded to.  there are a few low-budget options for video card hardware like these examples:

also, i would like to see the speccy report on your PC...

 

please Publish a Snapshot using Speccy - http://www.bleepingcomputer.com/forums/topic323892.html/page__p__1797792#entry1797792 , taking care to post the link of the snapshot in your next post.
