Hi all ..

I'm going to buy this processor so i was wondering if the integrated GPU which is Radeon HD 7660D can run most of the modern games with ease,, games like pro evolution soccer 2013 and tomb raider 2013 battlefield 3 all on med-high settings with 18.5 Monitor 1366x768

or i have another choice to get this processor A6-3670K 2.7GHz + a discret Radeon HD 6670 1GB GDDR5 or HD 7750 1GB GDDR5... it won't make a difference consider to my budget

so whats the better choice for more gaming experience ...

Yes and no, the 5800K is a good strong processor for daily office use and for HD video playback.

As a gaming chip, it will be ok if you crank down visual details to low or play games designed 3 years or more ago. Todays games just make the thing cry.

FX6300 + Hyper 212 Evo + GTX650 TI Boost or Radeon HD7850, Samsung 840 Pro SSD + 1TB+ HDD, 8GB (2x4GB DDR3-1866 just in case you want to overclock and keep memory at 1:1, if not DDR3-1333)

I'll let somebody else recommend the motherboard

if you wait a little you might be able to get one of the new apu's. they should be released soon.

like stig said, don't expect tons of performance unless you turn some settings back, like AA and shadows in the newer games. 1300 res is about right for the 5800.

also, the memory, get 1866 right off the bat. don't get anything slower. the apu's need the bandwidth. buy it in pairs ( 2-4gig sticks would be optimal )

When combined with fast RAMs the A10-5800K Trinity APU (or, A10-5700) works just dandy --- especially in older titles. And, the FM2 socket should provide (with a BIOS update) a transition to the next-gen Kaveri APU which is due this Fall.

The Kaveri APU provides graphics core next (GCN) Cape Verdi cores, or essentially an HD7750 on the CPU die.

If you only want to play games using the integrated graphics core, then you are better off waiting for the Richland APU which is supposedly available for sale next month.

The Radeon HD 7660D is only a little more powerful than the desktop Radeon HD 5570 which makes it less powerful than a Radeon HD 6570. You can attempt to search for game benchmarks of the Radeon HD 6570 to get an idea of how well or poorly it does in games, but weak cards generally do not get reviewed very often.

The upcoming Richland APU's most powerful integrated graphics core is the Radeon HD 8670D. It has been estimated that the performance could be between 20% and 40% more powerful than the Radeon HD 7660D. On the low end that means the Radeon HD 8670D is about equal to a desktop Radeon HD 5670. On the high end it would probably be half way between a Radeon HD 5670 and the Radeon HD 6670.

thank for all the replies so ok in your opinions all should i go for

Pentium G 2020 2.90/3M + HD 7750 1GB OC GDDR5
rather than
AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz with iGPU

for better gaming experience or there would be a bottleneck !!

yes at your resolution a 5800k will be fine

something to consider. for the price you pay for a good m/b and good ram 1866> you would be much better off with a fx 6300/6350 and a cheap am3+ board add a 7790 and you will be ahead of the curve for steamroller.
