so i am moving from ps3 gaming to pc gaming and i am building a budget pc that i am going to use for gaming and home use.
cpu:intel g2030 3.0ghz (50 euros)
gpu:asus HD radeon 7750 (83euros)
ram:4gb 1600mhz(1x1) (37euros)
mobo:ASROCK H61M-VG4 RETAIL (39 euros)
psu:corsair vs series 450w (40 euros)
hdd:WD 500GB CAVIAR BLUE (50 euros)
case:cougar spike mini gaming case (20 euros)
so all the pc components costed about 330 euros..
so what i want to ask is,is there a better amd bult with the same price?this pc costed me 330 euros.all i can give its 350 euros.so can someone show me an amd setup with the same price?becuase later i am going to be putting an 4core cpu and intel 4core cpu's are very expensive(150 euros i3) although the cheapest amd 4core cpu in my country is 70 euros.(AMD ATHLON II X4 740 3.2GHZ)

the number of cores in a CPU is not the only factor to tell if it's good. There are other things as well.
But do you have the other components such as the
- Monitor
- Keyboard
- Mouse
- Speakers ( unless you are planning to use headphones )
- Operating system

Overall , your PC system isn't very good. I recommend a Motherboard with 4 RAM slots for future upgrades. 8 GB of RAM would be great.

This should help you

and I also recommend a Corsair CX430 instead. It's 80+ Bronze Certified , so it's more efficient , so you might see a decrease in your monthly electrical bills.

-yes i have all those that you said.
-for the mobo.i am not going to use more than 8gb of ram.for now i am going to put one 4gb 1600mhz stick and later i will put another one.
-i am thinking of uing the Athlon X4 750K.its 20 euros more expensive but i think its better from the 2core 3.0ghz intel g2030 right?.
-ok i will use the CX430 thanks for the recommendation although i am not going to be putting other stuff in my system.this voltage can ''feed ''my system properly i think.

with that , I think you can only play Far Cry 3 on LOW and get 30 + FPS . Same goes with BF4. But not for MC and L4D2

The higher the Resolution , the Lower the FPS made by your GPU .

Imagine your GPU as a Painter. your 1920 x 1080 ( Full HD ) screen is the canvas , so he would take a longer time to paint it than a smaller canvas ( screen ) .

if you play in 1280 x 720 , you should be getting 30+ FPS in Medium to High settings.

But I highly recommend you get a FX-4300 . BF4 needs a Good CPU

ok...at least they are playable...but i am mostly going to be playing red orchestra 2....this game will run ok high settings 1920x720 i think..it doesnt require alot...so i think i am going to go with the intel bult im am in a VERY strong budget and i cant go upper than 350 euros...its cheaper from the amd bult and i am going to buy the psu that you recommended me...for now games dont require more than 2 cores and more than 3ghz ...so for now it will be good...later i maybe change the mobo and get an 4core amd more than 3ghz or i will buy an 4core i3...but for now i think this built will be good..

so to conclude
- get the FX-4100 / 4300
- Change the screen resolution from 1920 x 720 to 1280 x 720 for games


I highly recommend the FX 4100 / FX 4300 for BF3 . REALLY .
