Solved My pc exceeds the requirements but still games run too slow

Specs: Windows 7
Hello everyone ,
I've spent a lot to play games properly in my new pc but still games like battle field 2/3 , GTA IV , Call of duty : Black Ops , Crysis , Payday the heist etc runs too slow even after reducing resolution and every other things to the lowest . But some other games like Batman : Arkham Asylum / Arkham City , COD : Modern warfare 1/2/3 , NFS undercover etc work really great if I lower the systems a little bit . Here goes my pc configuration ,

Processor : Intel core 2 Duo 32-bit OS (3.00 GHz)
Ram : 4 GB DDR3
GPU : XFX ATI radeon hd 5450 1GB DDR3 (Driver are up to date)
HDD : 500 GB
OS : Windows 7

As far as i know , my pc configuration is above the recommended requirements of the mentioned games . So , why am i still facing problems ?? Please help me out someone .. Thanks .

Newegg has an Antec 400W PSU for just $11 after rebate & 15% off promo code (free shipping), but you've got to shell out $51 then wait to get the $40 back. It's an excellent unit with 30A on the +12v rail, it would have no problem handling a gaming card:

Graphics card is not a Gaming Card:

You will also need a quality branded PSU if you buy a quality card....

"As far as i know , my pc configuration is above the recommended requirements"

Nope. Your video card is an HTPC (Home Theater) card, not a gaming card. If you just bought or built the PC, it's too bad you didn't do a little research about video cards in advance. The HD 5450 lacks the stream processors, texture units, & memory buswidth for gaming. If you can't afford a better card, there's not much you can do other than use a low game resolution setting & turn off all the eye candy.

Thanks a bunch . I'm actually not that much of a computer guy . So , i didn't know what to do before purchasing any video cards . Just picked up the 5450 randomly :p . Now , it looks like i have no other way out but getting a new card . I'll somehow manage the dough for the card but it's impossible for me to afford a quality PSU along with it . so can u please suggest me some gaming cards within 100USD which don't require any quality PSUs ? Thanks .
