Description

This was my first actual desktop build prior to this I was a console player, and while I have to say I love the convenience of consoles that any game on a console is made to run for that console's specs, but while that's the case I still starve for hands on knowledge, I wanted to know what was in my build how it ran, and what would be the best way to upgrade it for the future, "Future Proof" if you will, and most of all I wanted a build that could run decent games at High settings with a respectable FPS 60+ such as WoW, LoL, SOMA, ETC

Personally I've enjoyed this build, and found it cheap, but effective it won't run EVERY game at high settings like The Witcher 3, but ones that are a year or two old, or are very well optimized, and not very demanding will see the benefit of this cheaply priced beast

Pretty Good Build for your needs. If you ever need any extra CPU or GPU Power, go for the A10-7890K in the future. The extra 2 Cores (Or Modules) will be worth it if you want to play some of the more demanding games down the road.

Overall, Nice work!

Nice Graphics card I'd consider buying that, but I'm not liking the CPU I personally prefer APU's especially if the dedicated GPU is compatible with it so I can run them in dual graphics mode, and currently intel isn't offering APU's and they're CPU's are far too expensive considering AMD has better for cheaper IMO

I just built my second PC with this processor. I will tell you that if you are playing on that big of a screen, you are going to be giving up a lot of performance. I was running mine on a 32 inch screen then I switched to a 19 inch monitor and got double the performance. Just a tip for you.

I had a 17-inch dell monitor, and moved over to my current 42-inch Vizio tv which is what you saw in the picture above I was well aware of the performance drop on the APU, and the heat issues afterwards had to switch the CPU cooler to the Cooler Master V8 GTS to keep it back where it originally was when I did the initial benchmarks off the Dell Monitor, and I had enough wiggle room to OC I'm planning on switching to the AMD A10-7860k APU though, and migrating the V8 GTS over to get better game performance and bundling the old A6 with the A10 stock cooler, and getting some other cheap parts to make a simple Linux home theater
