Description

Im been using amd as my primary CPU. Until Now im Always been a huge fan of AMD Processors. Not only their CHEAP, Performance wise they not bad at all.. Most of my friends telling AMD sucks but their Wrong. Most people used their personal preferences, I have no against Intel whatsoever but damn they way too much for my budget especially if im making only minimum wage. So far I havent any problems with my build.

Thanks for stopping by, Hopefully we get along with it comes to building PC. ITs not about competition its all about what we Love to do.

I was going to ask a couple of questions about some part choices but then I looked at the prices, it seems like you got the processor and motherboard as used? If you paid 100$ for both of them good job, it's a really good deal, that processor can be kept for a htpc / mule pc later on if you upgrade. The only observations I would make to your build are that it is a bit of a waste to use a discrete gpu with an apu, but again it seems you got a nice deal on the 7850k so it doesn't matter, and that the corsair cx series are a bit on the low quality side for the power supplies, I'd see to change it if you want more stability / reliability on your system.

Thanks for your comment MightyAlfred.

Yes, I havent build PC for a long time so I was lost in a sauce for building PC. But yeah thanks for advice too.

why is it a waste to get a discreet gpu with an apu?

Because, supposing you are buying the apu new, it will cost more than an equal processor without the graphics part (see the A10-7850k vs the Athlon 860k). Since most of the discrete gpus won't work together with the integrated one, it will sit there doing nothing, so you'll be spending more for nothing.

amd A-series apu are marketed as being able to be used with discrete gpus. You make it sound like your are NOT supposed to do it.

For what I know you can only use a few, selected gpus from amd for the so called dual graphics, and those are really low tier gpus. You can see here the advised/compatible gpus that you can use for that (and note that only one discrete gpu can be used for this).

I believe the most powerful card that ran in dual graphics with an APU is a r7 250, but I may be wrong. In any case it's not really an optimal solution.

Dont get me wrong. I like intel as well but for my current situation as minimum wage. I cant really afford to buy Intel for my budget. Maybe someday if I can get a decent job I definitely go for Intel I7.

Just built almost the exact same computer here. But threw it in a Thermaltake CoreV1 Snow Edition

How's that case bro.. that was actually my second choice since bitfenix went on sale for $50.00 so I got a pretty good deal at Newegg.

Good deal. The Core V1 is awesome. Gets a lot of looks from the ladies. Cable management is easy and airflow is good thanks to the 200mm fan that's included. Since it's a Mini-ITX case, I just had to buy a fan splitter cable to accommodate the cpu cooler and exhaust fans. I really like how all of the panels are interchangeable. How's your case?
