    I am not quite sure about your processor but I think it may be underpowered. You need an i7 for serious gaming. i5 might be ok too and you also need at least 16 GB of RAM too.

    What's the exact model number of the AMD Radeon R9 200 series graphic card?

    What's the brand name and model number and wattage of the power supply?

    I agree with post #2. Add another 8 GB of RAM.
