Not my cup of tea. You're pairing an APU with a GTX 770 for some reason and going with the "standard" power supplies, which are universally terrible. Even taking into consideration that you're paying hundreds to have someone else build it, that's a scary price for an A10-5800K build.

The AMD A10-5800K is a bad, bad choice with a 770.

It's a bit... redundant.
Why get an APU when your already getting a video card. If you're going with a video card your better off with a FX processor.

Also don't pay the $30 for overclock if you get the A10. You can very easily overclock this yourself from 3.8ghz to 4.2ghz with the click of a button.

I fixed some things up for just using the APU alone. You don't need a video card if you get an A10. And quite frankly, the A10 is the equivalent of an $80-$100 video card and is more than capable of running any game. What's the point in getting an APU if you don't use the iGPU.

Ah, gotta love online builders. Only they can proclaim that paying $500 for a 7990 is a special $700 off offer when you can buy the GPU for just over $600.

Hah swifty.

But hey, at least the guy is choosing his own parts and not buying a prebuilt PC. Some people just don't have the confidence to build a PC with their own hands. It can very intimidating.

I remember when I took apart my first laptop. I was so scared I was going to break something. But I followed the service manual and everything went smoothly. As long as you follow instructions/directions, it all turns out fine.

It's my first time trying to build a PC, but I'm trying to see if this would be good.

Thank you for your help. I'm new in building a PC and choosing new parts and all that.

So to say, I can play BF4 max settings?
