This was my first budget build. I had a target goal of $500 set to spend photos will be added in the near future. My next steep is to upgrade the processor and add a video card mY be some better ram.
for streaming, i would go with a 8350 processor and a gtx970 or a r9 290
This would be a functional rebuild, he would have to replace the; mobo, CPU and add a GPU. Though I agree your part choices would have been better from the get go, but he has it built now.
Thanks for taking the time I M in the process of rething my whole build do you think that cpu can be used for a home server build since I am getting a new cpu
I would assume it would do the basic job, what kind of server are you planning? APU's seem to go best in HTPC's or really small computers but can be used in just about anything so long as you are okay with the setbacks they have.
I run an A6-3500 in my basement as my lab computer, its not the fastest thing but it gets the job done. My main rig is running a FX-8320, and I can RPD in to it (running win 8.1 pro) if I need something faster then the A6.
I would do the RAM first, APUs really need faster ram due to the system sharing RAM with the GPU. Also consider a solid state drive.
Thanks for the help happy building
