  1. Forget APUs. Get a i3 and add a discrete GPU if you want to game. Otherwise a i3 is plenty. Also, a 300W PSU might be enough. And you could add a SSD with the savings.

    Not getting an SSD. It should be able to play 3D Videos (downloaded) in 1080p. would a gt 610 + i3 4130 be enough?

    This would be better and it costs less. Try to find the parts in your region before buying, though.

    I really don't think 700$ will cut it for 3D and 4K, especially not both at the same time:(. You will want to spend at least 1000$.

    Extra VRAM is good for you.
  14. Might aswell use my ps4 instead. 3D and 4K for 500. Thought it would be cheaper.
