AMD Trinity Pre-Built Gaming PC

If I were to buy this pre-built PC from Newegg:

But I replaced the power supply with a 750W PSU:

And bought an AMD Radeon 7950 with 3GB DDR5 RAM:

Would this setup be a good gaming PC?

  1. You would do better if you started with a barebones kit with a AMD FX6300 or FX4300 or Phenom 965 BE rather than a APU.

    Can't you crossfire the IGPU with like a Radeon 7950 for increased performance and then overclock the processor to at least 4.2Ghz and get pretty great performance on most modern games maxed out?
  3. No you can only do it with a 6670 and the results are not worth it. The FX6300 is a much better cpu than the one in the A10. Even the phenom 965 is a better gaming cpu.
  4. You can't crossfire the APU with anything nearly as strong as a 7950.
  5. That mobo only works withe APU only. You need to get a AMD3+ mobo which is less money.

    For $699.95 this seems like a pretty nice rig.
  7. Looks good but you will need a hard drive and probably an optical drive.
  8. One item you need to change the case you picked is a matx case and is two small to fit the atx mobo. Try the NZXT source 210 case at Newegg. A better case that will fit the mobo and $5 less.

    Already have a 1TB hard-drive. And pretty sure my PC has an optical drive, I'll just take the parts from that.
  10. And RAM too

    Added that case instead. I appreciate the advice a ton. :)

    Actually, do you recommend any cases of the same size that have fans already in it? Saves a bit of time for me, and maybe not too expensive?
  13. Cooler Master HAF 912 for $50 after $10 mir at Newegg.com. Haf 912 has a 120mm fan in front and back and more fans can be added.
