Bravey, did you list the video cards correctly?

What are your platform specs?  Which quad core do you have, which motherboard, what memory speed?
It might be your graphics subsystem that is the bottleneck in your system.
I would suggest you first upgrade your video card and make it a good one.
Drop those $200-$300 on a video card that you'll use even if you keep your cpu/motherboard/memory or upgrade your platform down the road.

What ever you do, don't skimp out on the video card; get a good mid-high end card.
That bundle package might look compelling because of the price for all the stuff, but you might regret wasting money on that video card.  Maybe look for a nice combo that doesn't include a video card so you can get that separate?

Here's a link to a recent 2013 CPU hierarchy chart.. Check where your current CPU falls in relation to the others.

I gave him the benifit of the doubt and looked up benchmarks for a HD 5550. All I can say is that I think I've identified his problem. When you're getting spanked by a mid level card from 4 generations ago, well.
