Pentium G2020 + HD 7770 + 4 GB RAM 1600 (VS) A10-5800K + 8GB RAM 2133

Pentium G2020 + HD 7770 + 4 GB RAM 1600
(VS)
A10-5800K + G.skill Ripjaws-X 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3 2133

What is the best of those combinations for more better gaming experience and also multitasking & future upgrading ?

  1. between theese 2 options the Pentium + 7770 is the best option. You can always add 4GB ram later, prices for ram fluctuate always.
  2. As they are, I'd take the A10. Allowing for upgrades? The socket 1155 Intel board will take much stronger CPUs, and the HD7770 is already stronger than the APU.
    Can you pull off an i3+HD7750 (GDDR5 of course)?

    I guess i can they cost around my budget which is 260 USD for CPU + VGA + RAM
    so will i3 + 7750 will beat the other combinations?
  4. It starts off with a stronger CPU than either. The HD7750 is obviously not as strong as the HD7770, but beats the APU, and is easy to upgrade later. Having to lower a few settings in the meantime is hardly "suffering."
  5. If you are truly able to run ram on A10 with speeds of 2133, then A10 hands down. These APU really shine with faster ram speeds.

    G2020 is listed to come with integrated graphics. And is 2-core chip. 2.9 GHz speed.

    A10-5800K has integrated 7660 graphics. And is 4-core ship. 3.8 GHz stock.

    Why would you use Pentium when it only runs up to 1333 DRR3 speeds?

    Well from my reading experience RAM speed doesn't really matter when using dedicated video card, it only matters when using the iGPU & correct me if I'm wrong
    To be honest I still confused what is the best for me I know that the A10 as a processor is better than the G2020 but in the gaming side the HD7770 is more future proof and can handle any game very well

    All I want to know if the G2020 is reliable enough and will not bottleneck the hd7770 and to be used for around 1 year or so then i will upgrade to an i5
  7. Clock speed alone does not determine CPU performance.
  8. I understand that you probably already have made up your mind. Yet, for the sake of continuing conversation I would like to ask question:

    How would settling with outdated G2020 and outdated 7770 card be future proof?

    How often do people change processor for motherboard? Once or twice? And how often would you change motherboard for same processor?
  9. Best answer
    The HD7770 should last a year or more using "good" settings; plenty of people are still using HD4850s and GTX260s to play games. The non-hyperthreaded Pentium will become a problem much more quickly, as games are finally becoming better-threaded.
    When building for any kind of future-resistance, the CPU/mobo becomes more important, as other parts are more easily upgraded. That's why I would suggest the hyperthreaded i3 if you can fit it into your budget.
