Hi purplekaycee :)

I used the website "Can you run it?" to get you the requirements (minimum and recommended) of all the games you listed. Here they are:

Witcher 2: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/the-witcher-2-assassins-of-kings/11073/?p=r
Witcher 3: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/the-witcher-3-wild-hunt/12446/?p=r
Battlefield Hardline: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/battlefield-hardline/12479/?p=r
Grand Theft Auto 5: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/grand-theft-auto-v/12455/?p=r
Call of Duty Advanced Warfare: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/call-of-duty-advanced-warfare/12228/?p=r
Far Cry 4: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/far-cry-4/12380/?p=r
DyingLight: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/dying-light/11912/?p=r
NBA 2k15: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/nba-2k15/12322/?p=r
Assassin's Creed Unity: http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/requirements/assassin-creed-uniy/12370/?p=r

The issue here is your CPU, which looks pretty low for the build you have. You don't even meet the minimum requirements (CPU sided) for some games like DyingLight, The Witcher 3, etc. In other words, new games.

Can you post a Speccy screenshot so I can see at least what CPU you have?

Your CPU is way too low: Intel Pentium E5300 @ 2.60GHz. It won't be able to stand most of these games sadly.

You need at minimum a Intel CPU Core i5-2500K 3.3GHz, and a minimum recommended of a Intel CPU Core i7 3770 3.4 GHz.

It's important to keep in mind that if you get a monster card like a GTX 960, but have a crappy CPU, you're going to be in for a lot of trouble. The CPU won't be able to keep up with the GPU if this is the case, causing the GPU to run at a reduced rate, which in turn keeps you from getting the full power out of your card.

 

I've had this issue for a while where thanks to my CPU, my card would only use half of my VRAM. After I've upgraded it's using all 4 GBs and seems to run at much higher clock speeds.

 

Never cut down on your CPU, it's one of the worst things you can do.

It wouldn't be, no. You need a i5-2500k at 3.3GHz minimum to play The Witcher 3, Assassin's Creed and DyingLight.

I am not sure about being able to run on a E5300. I doubt it'd run well. I have a i3 and can handle all these games but I have to run them at low settings. You can check youtube for people running these games on a i3. I would suggest to get an i5 though.

And the fact that you run these games with an i3 might mean that when you game, you cannot do anything else as your CPU is probably stacking at 100%.

It should do the trick. In the worst cases, if it's clocking too low you could always overclock it but it's tricky/not for the common user.
