AMD Kaveri A10-7700K performance combined with sapphire Hd 7770 Ghz Edition OC 1 gb ?

Yesterday I was cleaning my thermaltake frio advanced cooler,when I Accidently dropped my Amd fx 8150 and bend its pins.Tried to repair it with with a card and knife carefully but unfortunately broken 3 of the pins.Since the damage has been done beyond repair.I am planing to buy AMD Kaveri A10-7700K APU With Radeon™ R7 Graphics.I am from Bangladesh,Dhaka. so not every intel or amd cpu is available and the prices are much higher than back in the states.I have an AM3+ motherboard therefore can not buy a Intel cpu.

I would like to know the performance frame rates that I will achieve on games like Battlefield 4, assassin's creed 4 on medium level graphics at 1920x1080.

My gaming rig configuration-
ViewSonic® VX2460h-LED 24 inch at 1920x1080.
Amd fx 8150 (Now DEAD)
MSI 990FXA-GD65 AM3+
2 x Corsair vengeance 1600 mhz 4 GB
1 TB western digital WD1002FAEX
Thermaltake frio advanced cooler
Thermaltake lite power 650 w psu.

Thanks In Advance....Musfiq....23/05/2014..

  1. No point in buying an APU if you're going to use a dedicated graphics card instead of the APU's GPU anyway. The also aren't compatible with your motherboard as they use the FM2/FM2+ socket.

    Your best bet is perhaps the FX-6300 up to an FX-8350 depending on budget.

  2. What he said. The A10 APUs will not fit your motherboard. Different socket.
  3. APU = Low power. Low Cost. Low demand for the other 90% use of PCs (Youtube, Facebook, etc.) NOT FOR GAMING. And totally different chipset.

    Thank you for replying in such short notice.I am bit confused.You and MSI website say that MSI 990FXA-GD65 can not run A10-7700k But here on my local retailer website it says Socket AM3+ !!! Must be compatible.have a look on these links

    I used to overclock my fx 8150 to 4100 mhz/4.1 ghz and but Battlefield 4 or any other game could only utilize 20 to 40 % of my CPU.Yes 7770 hd utilization was 100 %.Then Avs video converter 8.1 could only utilized 60% of the CPU.yes I have overclocked the nuts of CPU,Disable AMD turbo core,pump the core voltage.But still no application that i use can utilize full potential of my CPU.On Time I had a virus which caused CPU load 100 % that it.What I am saying and still regret today that I should have bought a 6 core CPU and more powerful and expensive GPU say for example SAPPHIRE HD 7870 GHz Edition 2GB.:pfff:

    Yes FX-8320 has 16 MB Cache 8 threads and 8 core but sometimes we need APU to make video playback better looking.Media player home cinema,Vlc try playing a 360p video with with APU with GPU we will notice the difference.But price wise in my country FX-8320 is cheaper than A A10-7700K.See the previous links price is mentioned over there......Why !!!

    Uhm yes the reason the 8150 didn't "max out" when on BF4 or such is because the GPU was maxed out, the CPU was stuck waiting. Now if you used a R7 or R9 with it instead, then you would seen the impact on the CPU would be much higher because the GPU wasn't 'maxing out'. Modern (2013 and forward titles) need a BALANCE performance between CPU AND GPU. IF one is way 'stronger' then the other, then you won't 'max out 100% ' on both, ONLY on one and the other (as your saying happened).

    It also depends on what settings you put BF4 on, a independent test here shows if you put it on the normal "1080p... Ultra Detail" ( http://www.bit-tech.net/hardware/graphics/2013/11/27/battlefield-4-performance-analysis/3) your crappy old 7770 would be single digits as compared to many other modern cards (see bottom of the list). Samething from the other main benchmark http://www.techspot.com/review/734-battlefield-4-benchmarks/page3.html (bottom of the list). So no you shouldn't bought a 6 core cpu, the problem all along was you bought a crappy old low end GPU and that was the bottleneck on the system. Now your CPU is hosed.

    At this point I would just suggest looking at at new system, as you need to get a decent GPU and now you need a working CPU. That is 2/3 of the computer cost, so you might as well just go 'fresh' new then trying to cobble it together with old used broken parts.

    My old HTPC was playing 720p video smoothly with an unlocked Sempron 145, and an HD 3870, for quite awhile in VLC. I suspect you had overheating issues, if that was the case with your previous chip. The 7700k is more expensive because you are paying for GPU and CPU together. The 7700k is more powerful than my old HTPC was.
