    Canadian
    I can overclock (make sure you add proper cooling)
    I got a 1680x1050 monitor i will be using, not going to upgrade to 1080p.
    Dont need wireless card,accessorys or soundcard
  3. I like the idea of building this to your strengths. since you plan on getting another gpu later but already have a 6670, it seemed a no brainer to get an A10. This way you can game out of the box, maybe do some dual graphics and squeeze a bit more out of that old gpu. The A10 benches quite well against an i3, so when you replace the 6670 you'll still have a capable quad core cpu, on a platform that has some life left into it, if say you want a cpu upgrade in the future.

    additionally the price of an A10 is such, you can get yourself an SSD and enjoy the joys of great load times.

    I asked if the solid state could be added. Why such a low sata Gb harddrive to for that price

    because he's spending 200 of your 650 on the cpu, he doesn't really have a lot of wiggle room on components. the A10 seemed like a no brainer when you consider you wanted an SSD and already had a 6670
  6. I didn't know what to take off for the SSD. What GPU did you have in mind? Maybe you don't need the Intel Core i5-3570K CPU. As for the HDD, I mistakenly clicked the wrong Add button. It was up one.

    @ingtar33: but if OP will upgrade in a month, the A10-5800K will be downplaying it.

    true enough. i took his "maybe a month or more later" to mean "when i can spend the money"... so i was building with a more nebulous upgrade schedule in mind.

    if we assume he's upgrading the gpu in a month... the no brainer would be this build.

    Not really junky. But yes, a Asus M5A97 R2.0 would be a better pick. :)
