Just curious: How is the A10's integrated graphics? I'm wondering how they would handle GW2. I'm trying to make a budget build for my girlfriend, but I don't want to break the bank. If the A10 can pull of GW2 with medium settings I'll probably pull the trigger and get it for her.

Solid build by the way; good choice with the 2133 Memory to go with the A10.

Just grab that fast ram , that's what is gong to allow you to unlock the potential in this chip. I am 40% done downloading the client so if you hang on a bit I will have some info for you on GW2 frames and settings.

 
 
Mandy [4 Builds] 2 points 26 months ago

Will do. I really appreciate it.

 
 
TheMagneticOne 2 points 26 months ago

Minimum of 1866mhz for memory to unlock the full potential. I believe i saw a benchmark showing that anything higher might actaully be a waste.

 
 
epskider [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 26 months ago

the dif between 1800-2133mhz is not amazing however ram rated at a higher clock will usually but not always run at a cooler temp when under-clocked at 1866 for example.

Here is a link to a $500 machine that could play anything out now maxed. DOES NOT INCLUDE: Case, HDD, OS I figured you may have some spare parts. Just config the APU to run in dual graphics w/ the 6670 in the BIOS. Set RAM Mhz to 2400 if not set by default in BIOS. and enjoy.

Where's your graphics card?

 
 
epskider [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 26 months ago

AMD build, will add a discreet card down the road, probably when I upgrade the PSU.

 
 
TheMagneticOne 2 points 26 months ago

You won't need to upgrade the PSU to add a video card to this build. The one you have will be just fine. Trust me. :)

This build is similar to something I plan on building but will be going mini-itx for mobo and case and this will be an htpc for movies and gaming.

 
 
epskider [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 26 months ago

What will be your cooler choice ?

 
 
DomCatz [3 Builds] 2 points 26 months ago

the only thing amd does better than intel is integrated graphics, good choice

 
 
TestBuilds 2 points 26 months ago

You should have gone with a 1TB drive for less money, but other than that, you;'re good.

 
 
epskider [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 26 months ago

Had this drive laying around going to migrate the os to a SSD and pick up a TB HDD when I get a new job :D

 
 
TestBuilds 2 points 26 months ago

Oh so at least you didn't buy it. Well good job for saving money.

 
 
TheMagneticOne 2 points 26 months ago

Here is a similar build I threw together for a budget gamer that has NO parts or items picked out for their pc yet. This includes Monitor, Keyboard, etc. The ENTIRE BUILD WITH EVERYTHING is only $600. Add another $60-90 for and HD 6670 so you can go Dual Graphics an really blow the lid off your games!!

I love this chip :3

 
 
darren97 2 points 26 months ago

hey guys can you check this for me and tell me how it will run bf3 and arma 2 please... http://pcpartpicker.com/p/l8KE

 
 
epskider [Submitter] [1 Build] 2 points 26 months ago

Try and find a ddr3 GPU it will run more effectively you wont run into much stuttering and you can save some more money or spend it on some arctic silver. Are you planning on OCing your APU ?

 
 
darren97 1 point 26 months ago

ok and possibly.

 
 
Ryanozzy 1 point 26 months ago

I wish the apu didn't clock down graphics cards with gddr5 memory to ddr3 memory when in crossfire mode. Oh well, nice choice, enjoy your new machine.

 
 
epskider [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 26 months ago

For the time being this will just save you money when building AMD based machines.

 
 
Obstinated 1 point 26 months ago

what do u think about this one?

epskider [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 26 months ago

Very nice, actually more affordable than mine :D

 
 
Obstinated 2 points 26 months ago

tnks is my first build =D

 
 
epskider [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 26 months ago

Congrats, glad to see more people migrating to PC gaming.

Just make sure if you buy a video card that it is compatible with the APU. Using a DDR3 based card will not only save you money but get you better results. :D

 
 
Obstinated 2 points 26 months ago

Radeon 6670 ddr5 don´t work as dual graphics?

 
 
epskider [Submitter] [1 Build] 1 point 26 months ago

The DDR5 aspect will be toned down to DDR3 anyway so you might as well buy a DDR3 based GPU.

 
 
Obstinated 2 points 26 months ago

tnks =D

 
 
fliphusker 1 point 26 months ago

The a10 is much better then I expected actually. I only play world of tanks, and I can play at max settings. Here is mine, as it is a lil similar. I did have issues getting the drivers to actual install for the Asrock mobo, if issues, try drivermax. http://pcpartpicker.com/b/yfM

 
 
Buka1991 1 point 22 months ago

HELP! I am building similar gaming pc, but according to the description of Radeon 6670, it doesn't support crossfire??? I heard you can use the igp and 6670 together, so why it says no crossfire support?

 
 
coach0742 1 point 21 months ago

It says that because it's technically not considered crossfire. They call it dual graphics or hybrid crossfire. Trust me, it will work.

 
 
Deibos [1 Build] 1 point 21 months ago

Hey, thought I'd let you know, your build helped me choose the A-10!

http://pcpartpicker.com/b/AJt

Here's my budget build! have a look, drop a comment perhaps! I will be eager to be trying an overclock on ram and APU :)
