I Just finished putting together my PC build; Is it good for gaming?

SO basically I just need feedback whether yall' think its good or no.

My specs are:

Mobo- F2A88XM-D3H, mATX, SATA 6Gb/s, etc

CPU- A10 6700 Richland 4.3gh Quad

PSU- 600w Thermaltake TR2

GPU- AMD Radeon 8760D 768mb (IGP) + R5 230 2GB

RAM- 8GB Stock ram

HDD- 1TB

Case- MS-I Commander Epic Edition Black/Red

ANY thoughts are welcome!

  1. NO. A10 is not for gaming, APUs are general purpose CPU/GPU combos so you don't need to buy a video card just to 'look at Facebook'. R5 is crappy low end card that even tested with a i7 on BF4 could only get 30s FPS on low graphics settings (everything turned off) http://www.notebookcheck.net/Battlefield-4-Benchmarked.105583.0.html , if you combined with a APU (which does in the 20s) you be lucky to be single digits.

    Honestly from the pricing of the parts it looks like your trying to PC Game for only "Couple Hundred", which is NOT doable. Take your couple hundred and get a console, you get MUCH better graphics, performance and 'will always play my games' then that piece of trash.

    PC Gaming is expensive, and games like WatchDogs, BF:Hardline, COD:AW, The Division, and so on all have HIGH demand on BOTH GPU and CPU. Further to be 'like I saw on Youtube' which is 1080p, 50FPS+ and on High+ Graphics settings, you need to spend AT LEAST $1000 for the hardware (given that the video cards like the R9/Nvidia760-770 that can play like that START at $399!!).

    No, no no no, no. I will agree with you that the A10 is not intended for gaming under any circumstance really, but there is NO reason to spend "at least" $1000 on a PC that will play games as good or better than a console. It has been proven time and time again that this can be done for about $500, approximately the cost for a Kinect Xbox One.
  3. Well, i have BF3 and 4 and they both run at very high frame rates compared to what your stating. 45+ Fps on BF3 multiplayer on high. BF4 SP is at least 45fps. I also can run Bioshock Infinite on Ultra. AND no. Res is not maxed. It just needs to look " good " and play smooth.

    Is the system above one that you already have put together and are playing these games on?
  5. Yes. I only had a certain amount i could spend. And this is what i built. I think its good... should i have spent more?

    Hell, if you're happy with the performance you're getting, and you can play modern games, I think it's fine. Everybody has different hardware requirements tailored to their individual needs.
  7. Like before i had an A8-4555m i thought was " good ". After a while with pc's i learned, Yes; The more you spend the more you get. BUT it looks better, plays better, and runs better than my old xbox. If anything, what could be a possible upgrade?

    Honestly, your setup confuses me a little. What are you using for your GPU right now? I would think that the A10 could outmatch a 768MB 8760. Then you have a R5 230 2GB listed, a low-tier DDR3 card. Are they in crossfire? How are you utilizing both of them? In my opinion, the A10 6700 has the equivalent of an HD 6670 or so, which would kick the crap out of both of those cards.

    Try running integrated graphics, see what happens.

    BF3 is much different then BF4, and I was speaking of BF4 64map multiplayer, as SP mode of course runs better then when say someone in a Helo unloads a rocketpod at your position. BF3 and older games aren't as CPU intensive as BF4 (2013 titles) forward are. They are putting in physics and logic models that are calculated by the CPU not the GPU. As I seen the numbers, and you can simply put YOUR part (i.e. R5 230 2GB) and include the word Benchmarkwitht he name of the game (so R5 230 2GB BF4 Benchmark as I pointed to) which demonstrates independently the exact samr things I was saying and repeated by the forums posts here as well with the same issues.

    Might be the best way to help you pick and choose if you look at the benchmarks more and establish where your at.
