A relative asked me to help her build a computer for some light gaming - a little bit of League of Legends here and there, and web browsing (around 10 tabs, gif heavy - think tumblr). I'd like some help with making sure it's a good build for the price, and has decent upgrade potential (she most likely won't buy a new computer for a few years.)
This is the build I came up with:
CPU ($144): AMD A10-6800K
Gets around 5000 on cpubenchmark.net, compared to my 8000 on my i7-2600K. Also has integrated graphics on the level of a 9800GT according to videocardbenchmark.net.
Motherboard ($56): MSI A75MA-E35
I have this for my A4-5300 and it seems pretty solid.
In a 500$ built a fx 6300 with better gpu would be always alot better than goin for 8320 and weaker gpu
ya i know , i just noticed that it would be over the budget if he got the FX-8320 !
however the FX-6300 is a powerful CPU , it will allow you to play latest games with no lag !
@DeterminAsian go for what has Sn1992 posted ! it's Awesome build for the price , you can play most of decent games at max settings with good fps & you can Crossfore that GPU in the future to get extra performance . Good Luck .
