So I just bought an
Asus - Essentio Desktop - 8GB Memory - 1TB Hard Drive
Model: M11BB-B06 SKU: 1681287
The Specs are in this link but just a little about it incase you dont want to check, it has:
- amd A-10 6700 processor 3.7GHz
-AMD Radeon HD 8670D (integrated)
-8gb of DDR3 ram expandable to 12gb
- 1TB Hardrive
-Asus SonicMaster technology
Would anyone have advice on what I can do to upgrade this? I want speed! I work with illustrator, and photoshop side by side on large format files, and am the occasional gamer. i.e Fallout 3 New Vegas, Skyrim, etc...
Can't say on the PSU since I don't know what's inside. But a 7750 is quite low power consumption, so I'm willing to bet it's ok.
As for mixing RAM, just don't. Keep all your modules the same speed and things work much better. The graphics on the APU work off your system RAM, not a dedicated fast VRAM like a discrete card, so faster RAM lets it work better. If you get a discrete card, RAM speed becomes much less an issue for the APU.
