A10 rig just like mine since he didn't want to spend all that much. He said he had $600 but didn't want to spend close to that so basically an i3 and a GPU were out of the question.

So he only wanted a computer for a computer. No gaming? Sure then I guess

A10 should be a step up above any 700 dollar hp with an i5

Extreme bias right there.

 

A current $700 HP packs a Core i7 3770 w/ 8GB of RAM and an AMD 7570

 

or for the same you could get an i5 3xxx with a high end graphics card

 

In that HP

I don't even remember what the low end card hierarchy is anymore. I just recommend AMD APUs for gamers and intel for power users on cheapy budgets.

depends on how cheapy

 

for $500, you can still put up a dang gaming system

 

i3 3xxx

GTX 650 boost

8GB RAM

500GB HDD

32GB SSD (optional)

Asrock mainstream mobo

 

and a case you got from the dumpster

He wanted a 1TB Hard drive.

 

Here's the list:

I remember when 8GB of RAM was $40 and 1TB was $50 ಥ_ಥ

 

 


Why the CPU Cooler? You bought the retail A10 so it already comes with one. AMD's cpu coolers are more than enough.

 

Anyway, what did the kid want it for?

 

That's a sexy Tempest

Little more expensive in the UK. That spec costs £430/$660ish, sans case and power supply. With a 450W PSU and a not dreadful case, that would be up to £500/$770.

Dat animation. Such a step up from the 2012 Japanese concerts.

This. Doesn't seem like an overclocker's build. 

 

Are CPU-integrated graphics decent these days? Didn't seem like they were an option for any serious gamer a year or so ago. 

post #75478 of 157389

For gaming, I'd drop from the i3 to an AMD APU, or even the 2xxx i3's and spend more money on the graphics card... I'm running an FX63xx chip (worse gaming than an i3, but better for multithreaded stuff) with a faster HD7870, and I'm still GPU bottlenecked for most things.

i3 3220 $100(on sale)

450W PSU $20-$25 (Mail in Rebate)

Spare Case upstairs =free

GTX 650 Ti Boost ($150 after MIR or $100 for regular edition)

Asrock mainstream mobo =$65

RAM 8GB =$55

500GB HDD =$45

32 GB SSD =$40

spare disk drive = free

spare Windows 7 Key =free

-----

$415. 

 

For a pretty dam good gaming station. The GTX 650 Ti Boost has some good performance for $150. Although I would rather get AMD for its gaming deal. (who the hell needs $75 in free to play games?)

 

This was a demo set for my bro.

 

Yeah, schiit is cheap in Murica.

Very decent.

 

The Flagship A8 could run games decently at 1080p. Low?

 

Not a thing for 'serious' gamers. But enough for the mainstream one. 

 

The fps drop and computation problem with intergrated graphics has gotten better though, not fully good

Whatever is the best cpu for $100 is what I'd go with for a pure gaming and general set.

 

This could be whatever the hell it is. AMD APU, Sandy Bridge i3 or Ivy Bridge i3 (on sale often now). Even Phenom II X4's on sale for $80-$100 are good deals.

 

Then add in an SSD and GPU and you are good.

 

The CPU bottleneck nowadays is a bit overhyped. AS long as you have something post 2008 with quad cores. (this is like $50 at the least, so very cheap). Then you won't see anything really. 2007 and before quad core and maybe some fps off as the reviews see etc etc
