A couple of years ago I built this computer rig and overall I have had no issues. Although one problem seems to have come up where my computer doesn't seem to be running games very well like it should. There are certain games that get as low as 15fps, and based on my computer specs this should not be happening. One game this does happen a lot with is Overwatch. And from what I have read, my computer should meet the spec requirments, and also all the graphical options are set to low, but still has performance issues. There also seems to be an issue where games that used to run well seem to under perform now as well. Can someone please help me find an answer. 

My specs are:
CPU: AMD Athlon™ X4 750K Quad Core Processor 3.40 GHZ
RAM: 8.00 GB
System type: 64-bit Windows 7
Mother Board: Biostar Hi‑Fi A85S3 Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
PSU: Antec 500W

Also another point to consider is that I use a NETGEAR N600 Wireless USB Adapter for internet connection. I this a good enough device for that. I tried plugging it in to both the USB 2.0 and 3.0 ports and there was no difference for online games

do a adware/malware cleaning:


a lot of the time when you start seeing performance issues it's because processes running in the background like malware or adware






get them here from the download section, run them and I bet it will find some issues and help speed up your computer.

I suggest also a general service to your computer. Dust may be clogged and can be anything.


Also do a defragmentation of the hard discs.


Computers should undergo both hardware cleaning and software cleaning for every 6 months at-least in my personal opinion.
