So I'm looking for a new setup nothing mind blowing good enough for 1440x900 resolution. I'm trying to build a system for around 600$ yea kinda cheap but at my resolution I'm doubting ill need to spend much more then that.
So at the moment I have a basic setup but would really like some insight
Cpu: AMD Athlon II X4 750K 3.4GHz
Memory: 4gb G-Skills X Series 1866mhz
Mobo: Gigabyte GA-F2A88XM-D3H Micro ATX FM2+
SSD: Sandisk ReadyCache 32GB 2.5" Solid State Disk (Just a boot drive for those yummy fast boots)
HDD: Seagate Barracuda 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM 64MB Cache (Does Cache do anything?)
GPU: 650TI Boost 1gb (Does a Nvidia card work fine with an AMD APU?)
PSU: EVGA 500W 80+ Bronze
Now this setup is about 520$ after rebates (Case/DiscDrive/Casefans are mostly generic)
Any comments? Any suggestions on maybe a whole new build or a part that's cheaper and better? Id love to know also i search with pcpartpicker.
Also I'd like to note I' not pro Intel or AMD just i find AMD is cheaper and runs fine in games as compared to the mid range Intel CPU's.
Anyways thanks tried to make it not so much of a block of text any comments are appreciated.
Well, this is that i can find for less than $550..
hexacore amd cpu, much faster than fm2 quadcore..and equipped with decent cooling, and you can easily reach 4.2-4.4GHz with this combo..
better motherboard am3 based system
and better psu..
