Hello,

I'm thinking of building a new gaming PC. This is my first time in building so my information might be limited. Ive read a lot of articles and watched a lot of videos on how to build a pc, so i have a good idea on how its going to be.

These are the specs i went with which will cost me around £780

Power Supply:

£105.74

CPU:
Intel Core i5 4670K Quad Core Retail CPU (Socke​t 1150, 3.40GH​z, 6MB, Haswel​l, 84W, Intel Graphi​cs, BX8064​6I74770​, 4th Genera​tion Intel Core, Turbo Boost Techno​logy 2.0) by Intel

I need your help to check if all these parts are compatible, and if there is a better option for the same amount of money.

As i said this is my first time in building a PC so any help will be appreciated.


Thank You

I cant believe you said that.
AMD APU's Sucks, I Admit it, but when it comes to an a8 or an a10 it is the best.
the a10 7850 the best you can get.
it has 12 cores--- the games releasing in the near future will me multi core optimized, hence this is a massive advantage.

I have been using it for some time now and its way faster than my i7 3930.

I support your statement that amd's processors are bad, but not the a10s and some bulldozers.
AMD PROVIDES MORE BANG FOR THE BUCK

These all are compatible; I'd go with Intel though imo because I prefer Intel over AMD.

At your price range follow master Mohammadmo's words and stay away from the AMD APU's, as having a CPU/GPU combo isn't a good idea as of yet for today's games.

That i5 will push in games better then any APU right now Imho.

There is a reason why TheMohammadmo has a CPU expert badge, and that's because he's been around the block and compared more then a few CPU's in his days on this forum.

In all honesty you could drop your CPU a little and get a better GPU but stick with the CPU and discrete GPU combo, no APU's.

Gaming is roughly 20% CPU and 80% GPU in most games.

Thank you veladem. Sorry for not responding you guys. But yeah, you just have a slightly better gpu but you have a downgraded cpu. You really want to have a nice little combo going on like veladem mentioned. Theres gonna be no point of having a pentium processor and a gtx titan. Completely pointless.
