Yes, the AMD A4-6300 is a lower end APU. Need to know the specific motherboard model in order to make sure a CPU suggestion is supported on the motherboard. Also, since your nephew is currently using an APU (graphics integrated into the CPU), does he have a stand alone graphics card?

Based on the info you provided only... any a10 cpu (APU) will work. There is the risk of bios not supporting the upgrade and from the sounds of it, its most likely a stock motherboard. For the money a used fm2 cpu is going to cost you could outfit him with a newer system for less money. Or, alternatively like Wolfshadw said run a dedicated graphics card. Could you confirm more details like the exact motherboard, there will be labels on it if you look inside the case, and how powerful the power supply is?

The games he plays are not very intensive so he will not need higher end parts. an a10 series APU will run you $50-100 used based on ebay and roughly $150 if you find it new or like new. I use to have an athlon x4 960 BE (700 series only supported on your board) build and its a solid quad core for dirt cheap, $15 average on ebay and it will let you pair it with a decent used graphics card depending on your budget.

On the topic of graphics cards, for the games hes playing honestly any graphics card will do as long as it doesn't require external power. Something like a gt 710/730 or a gtx 1030/1050 if you need it on the cheap you can get older cards as well. This is where it all comes down to what you can find and afford. Keep in mind newer cards may not be supported with that old of a system, so it may limit you.

After you update the drivers, maybe try adjusting the settings to lower resolutions to see if that helps. If you notice an improvement with lower settings the processor is still lacking the power to run it and a dedicated graphics card is going to be the next step.

Additionally, I would try watching the temps of the processor to make sure its not thermal throttling (running so hot its lagging). You can do this with any hardware monitoring software, I use this :


If you are running hotter than 90c thats probably affecting performance. But ultimately a dedicated graphics card is going to be the way to go from here.

I already tried all the method you guys said. But unfortunately its still lag and for only 10 mins his computer can run and keeps shutting down. It keeps shutting down. The seller said that the processor is not the problem. But i put back his old a56300 and his computer dont shutdown automatically. :(

What are the temperatures when it's shutting down? Because lagging and then shutting down suggests a CPU thermal throttling and then hitting the limit.

Also, what is the PSU? 35 additional watts usually doesn't make a difference, but if it's a very low wattage, very low-quality PSU -- as you'd typically see on a light machine such as this -- that could actually be a problem.
