    Low FPS when gaming. R7 200 Series


      This computer is only a year old, and I got it because of the high specs. that I thought it had for the price.  However I didn't fully realize until I did a Benchmark for a game it was saying  I was lacking.  I then checked the FPS on my Final Fantasy 14 game and on High settings says I have between 8-11 FPS. So I changed settings to low and still it only gave me about 22-28 fps.  A friend told me I have higher specs than them and yet on the same settings I have they get between 60-120 fps.  I don't know if I need a new graphics card or what ranking mine even is since I never used a graphics card before since used mostly laptops, nor do I know if there is another issue giving me bad or lacking performance.   I currently have AMD Radeon R7 200 Series, and have the current graphics driver update being Radeon Software Crimson Edition (17.5.1) yet no change in fps and the game benchmark saying I'm under the Min. requirements even though I should be fine.   Please Help!!

          "R7 200 series"  is meaningless, as it could mean anything from the R7 240 to R7 265. Use GPUz and post a screenshot. Also, the MINIMUM GPU requirement for Final Fantasy 14 Stormblood is an R7 260X, so even if you do have that card you will NOT be playing that game at 1920x1080 on high details.
