    Friend's pc is worse but runs games better

    So my friend has a worse CPU and GPU than me which are Amd a10-7870k and a 1050ti. My CPU and GPU are an i5-2400 and a 480rx 4gb. His pc runs games better though. Could the problem be ram? We have the same amount of GB of ram but his MHz is higher which is 2400MHz while my RAM's MHz is 1333.
