Description

So I have to go to my dad's every summer, and I like to game. I used to have an Xbox, til I sold that to make a Gaming PC. So I was left gameless, until now. I built this little budget build to serve me for about a year before I upgrade. You guys may think I'm crazy for getting a 500 watt PSU, but it was on sale for 25 bucks! So why not? The A10 5800k is quite good actually. Slightly overclocked the GPU to 950 MHz, nothing too much. My wire management also improved tremendously compared to this: http://pcpartpicker.com/b/Bmc <---- Wire management is terrible but I'm only 12 xD

Let me know what you think!

im pretty sure you can get away with a 500psu considering your pc doesnt pull a ton of wattage. you can always calculate your psu wattage and psu recommendation using a psu wattage calculator. very nice budget build. you will love that ram.

I think he meant that was overkill, not being a little below requirements.

Come on, you can get away with a 500 watt power supply with an i7 thats overclocked slightly.

Nice budget build, I wish that the source 210 was not $65 in Australia.

excellent job on... well, everything. so the next time someone whines about not making a gaming PC as cheap as a new console, just show them this.

You can always xfire the CPU GPU, with a 6670 if you need more GPU power! but good budget build and a good way of changing out the consoles!

Only thing is the cpu cooler. Could have gone with a much more effecient one for less money. That one is pretty much only good for htpc and mini itx. Oher than that I think everything is really good. You did your research with the apu. Nice pick on fast ram!

Integrated gpu is fine for basic tasks.

It's called an APU. They're a bit better than your typical integrated graphics. They benefit from higher speed RAM which he seems to have. They're great for budget builds such as his.

Reading the description is a great way to actually learn about a build before making comments. For $400 he created a gaming PC that will outshine his old Xbox. I'm sure that's plenty for any 12-year-old.

He overclocked the internal gpu (7660D) on the A10 5800k.
