Iv got a prebuilt computer i bought for gameing although i wanted to build one myself i didnt trust myself to be able to do it without breaking expensive hardware so now that iv got this one off amazon im finding out its not actually all that great for gaming and need to figure out what to upgrade on it mostly to play fallout 4 as im getting abysmal 10-15 fps while in most busy areas and its even worse in actual gun fights im thinking its mostly the graphics card but the cpu probably needs an upgrade too.

 

I need a suggestion for a decent graphics card in the 100-200 dollars range preferably in the lower 200 as i just need it to run stable fps on average settings for games like fallout 4 and black ops 3 along with other current gen games and if so on amazon if possible as i have prime.

You can upgrade to a GeForce GTX 960 for about $200. It is a very powerful graphics card and is able to run modern games. If you want even better buy a GTX 970 but it is far from your price range, more than $300.

You can just install the GPU and use it, no need to upgrade to Windows 10, unless you want to take advantage of DirectX 12. Make sure you uninstall the AMD graphics card driver first, after install the GPU go to Nvidia website and install the driver.
