I'm building a gaming computer(this is my first time so sorry if I did something nooby) Is this a decent computer? How well would you say it would be able to run games? Are there any other parts I should use instead that would be a bit better? Thanks in advance.

P.S. I already have a spare hard drive and OS

Looks horrible to me to be honest, but depends on a number of factors like what resolution is your monitor?

I suggest you fill out the new build form in the new build section of the forum if you want the best parts for your budget and needs. I have way too many questions to help you without that information.

well if you are gaming dont get the a4. I would get the a10 and save for a gpu in the future, also with apus the faster the memory the more frames per second so try to find a 2x4gb of 1866 for about 10-20 bucks more depending on sales.

that or just save up a little bit more and get a better gaming processor like the fx 6300 for the same price as the a10 and a decent gpu. If you do go that route i'd recommend a little higher wattage psu like 600 to know you have more than enough.

The fx 6300 will be decently faster than the apus but there is no onboard video.

If you are interested i actually have a fairly new 550ti fpb and a pny 550ti that i have in sli. i could sell you the whole combo for 125 and youd have a pretty sweet gaming rig.

Honestly, it's not a good gaming PC. I reccomend watching this video.
