November 17, 2013 2:49:51 AM

So, I am building a budget gaming pc.
I was thinking on to get some cheap cpu for investing in gfx card.Which is about 3-3.5 ghz speed and I found one .
Here's what I am thinking:

I live in India. And my budget is about 30,000 INR. (478 Dollars).

So Here's my list according to my budget at here:

I have 8k (which is about 130 USD) remaining in my budget. Please suggest the best possible gaming gfx card.

Thank you

For gaming it is better to use an Intel CPU or don`t you plan to use it for gaming? Also you can save from the RAM, there is not a big difference and you could use normal 1333 RAM and get a better CPU for that, 4GB are more than enough for gaming.

I recommend the following Configuration:

Processor: AMD Quad-Core A8-6600K APU Rs 8055

(Flipkart Link: http://www.flipkart.com/amd-3-9-ghz-fm2-quad-core-a8-66... )


Motherboard: ASUS F2A55-M-LE Rs 6396

(Flipkart Link : http://www.flipkart.com/asus-f2a55-m-le-motherboard/p/i... )


RAM : Corsair Vengeance DDR3 4 GB x2 (Total 8GB RAM in Duel Channel mode for maximum graphics performance) Rs 6400

http://www.flipkart.com/corsair-vengeance-ddr3-4-gb-1-x...

Cabinet: Cooler Master Chasis Elite 310 around Rs 2000
(Snap Deal linkhttp://www.snapdeal.com/product/cooler-master-chasis-el...;19 )


Hard Disk: Seagate 500GB HDD costs around Rs 3500

(Flipkart Link: http://www.flipkart.com/seagate-barracuda-500-gb-deskto... )


Power Supply: Cooler Master CM 350 Plus for Rs 1836

(Flipkart Link: http://www.flipkart.com/cooler-master-cm-350-plus-watts...

Total Costing around 28K. AMD APUs have the strongest built in graphics performance compared to an i3 or i5

So I'll buy a 1600 corsair vengeance(46 USD) for 3000 which gives me 1500 more on my build. kk what do you say next?

Ok, that was helpful but I personally think that a seprate( not integrated ) gfx card will be more powerfull?
Anyway,
Would this run GTA 4 , GTA 5 (in future), BF3 AND BF4 At medium settings at high resolution ?

Intel Pentium G3420 for an duo core which will be the best budget CPU for little money and will perform better than AMD duo cores in games and maybe a ASrock H81M mainboard. For the GPU you can get a r7 290x from Gigabyte or HIS. That would be all in the budget. This GPU is a lot better than the integrated one. Also the Intel CPU is better for the games.

Because Intel Pentium G3420 is currently unavailaible here.

The AMD Quad-Core A8-6600K APU has Graphics performance similar to a Radeon HD 6670. You can play most of the todays games at medium graphics setting and resolution not exceeding 1680x1050

Well if it is from the older models then G860 because the G630 is a bit slower.

Ok I also want to ask you if I choose a msi a55m e33 which is 3500 and amd a10 5800k which is 9000 and ram corsair vengeance 4gb. How would this be?

Well since it is dual core it need to have higher clocked cores so I would recommended the G860 as minimum.

Best solution

Yeah its okay, but ensure you install corsair vengeance 4GB of 2 ie: in Duel channel mode to get maximum graphics performance from the AMD APU. AMD APUs performance are sensitive to memory bandwidth. The more memory bandwidth, the more graphics performance you get.

That was helpful :D 

Thanks Bro :D  But are you sure it will run gta 5 (when it comes out) in high-ultra settings (at least medium) ?

And i also wanted to tell what if i use a 4500 hyperx 1x8 gb kingston ram. I can buy another one of the same piece in FUTURE so it will give out more perfomance (as this motherboard has only 2 slots) or do you think 4x2 gb is ok?

You should use 2x2GB 1333 or 1600 RAM there is not a noticeable difference and for gaming you won`t need more. Dual-channel is better than more ram without dual-channel. You should invest more money on GPU because it is the most important part for gaming or you can buy later a good GPU. On a budget build is not useful to put money where you don`t get almost any improvement.

This is the only ram that i found in 2gb 1600mhz
I am looking to buy 2 pieces of it. Is it dual channel?
Will it be fine?

Yes, 2 x 2GB RAM will run in dual-channel and this RAM is good to go with.

You should save the 4k and save a bit more for a good GPU in the future or buy the controller if you need it.
