Cheap solution to performance issues

Running the game in Unreal 4 crawlsssssssss. 15 FPS with a super simple level setup. Using the editor is ok but I can’t develop unless I can run the game at a decent FPS. Looking at my basic specs, would upgrading to a 1GB or 2GB video card (not sure about motherboard power source compatibility?) be enough to improve my frame rate? Or am I looking at new all of the above?

This is my PC specs:
Processor: Intel(R) Core™ i7-2600 CPU @ 3.40GHz (8 CPUs), ~3.4GHz
Memory: 16384MB RAM
Operating System: Windows 7 Professional 64-bit
Card name: AMD RADEON HD 6350 512 mb
Hard Drive 1 TB (over 800GB free)

I’ve searched quite a few posts and my head is spinning as I try and figure out if a video card upgrade is enough to cure the performance issues. Thanks for any help.


Your GPU seems to be your bottleneck yes. My system is similar to yours except I have a nvidia 770 4GB. I have 60+ fps (vsync) all the time.

Thanks for the help. I was pretty sure a video card upgrade would be enough but looking through all the spec posts was driving me crazy. Now to make sure my power supply is ok for the new card.
