Is this a decent build?

Hello,

Im on a tight budget of around 600 dollars and am wonderign if this build could run games like Just cause 2, crysis, skyrim, bf3, etc on max or high!

Tower - RAIDMAX SMILODON ATX-612WBP Black 1.0mm SECC Steel ATX Mid Tower Foldout MB Computer Case With 500W Power Supply

HDD - Samsung by Seagate Spinpoint F3 HD502HJ/ST500DM005 500GB 7200 RPM SATA 3.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive

Mobo - MSI A75A-G35 FM1 AMD A75 (Hudson D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS Item #: N82E16813130615

wireless adapter - Rosewill RNX-N300X PCI Wireless Adapter

GPU - ASUS EAH6770/DI/1GD5 Radeon HD 6770 1GB 128-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.1 x16 HDCP Ready Video Card

RAM - Patriot Gamer 2 Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model PGD38G1600ELK

Processor - AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano 3.0GHz Socket FM1 100W Quad-Core Desktop APU (CPU GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 6550D AD3870WNGXBOX

Fan (extra) - COOLER MASTER Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R2 Continuous Direct Contact 120mm Sleeve CPU Cooler Compatible with latest Intel 2011/1366/1155 and AMD FM1/AM3


This is copy paste from all Ive been lookign at and i wnated to give all of the info!

Ive also checked on gamedebate.com and it looks like i should be able to run just cause 2 at highest 60 fps (800 by 600 because i dont enhoy big screens) and skyrim at ultra and crysis and at least at medium to high maybe even ultra

  1. Best answer
    I wouldn't go AMD right now when even the Pentium G620 is far better, and I will never recommend using Raidmax on any build as their cases are just out and out garbage.

    Try this for a $600 build:

    Case: Cooler Master HAF 912 - $59.99 ($10.00 MIR)
    PSU: Corsair Builder Series CX600 - $69.99 ($20.00 MIR)
    Motherboard: Intel BOXDH67DLCB3 - $89.99
    CPU: 3.30GHz Intel Core i3-2120 - $127.99
    RAM: 8GB Crucial Ballistix Sport 1600MHz - $44.99
    HD: Samsung / Seagate Spinpoint HD 500GB - $84.99
    Optical: Lite On DVD Burner - $17.99
    Video Card: Sapphire Radeon HD 6850 - $149.99 ($15.00 MIR)

    Total: $645.92 - $45.00 MIR = $600.92

    With this build you get a far more powerful CPU than any Llano will come close to, you get better RAM, a dedicated GPU that's far more powerful than the LLano's built in, and a case that's one of the best on the market and not likely to fall apart on you after a year. You also get a real PSU that's not likely to blow up on you.
  2. I think not.

    One buys the 3870K with the intent of using the very good integrated graphics.
    The discrete 6770 is not a very big jump over the llano graphics which will be wasted.
    I really doubt that the graphics of either will allow you to play games at high resolutions or eye candy.

    Also, Except for Antec, I would not buy any case with an included PSU.

    You could build your own case using some plywood, a USB header, and a few pieces of scrap metal and it'd still be better than anything Raidmax makes. :lol:

    That's why I indicated the MIRs - you'll save about $45 that way and you'll get a way better system out of it.

    Get a USB wifi adapter - those are like $10 - $15, try this one - it's the same one I use: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16833704045

    Oh I didn't catch that about the RAM. I'm used to Z68 builds and hardly ever use H67 except on ultra budget. :lol:

    You don't have to worry about compatibility - everything is standardized for the most part. The only time something wouldn't be compatible is if say you try to use an AM3+ CPU on a LGA 1155 board. Just make sure the RAM voltage you choose is 1.5V and you're set. Try this - it should work: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820178333

    That should work fine.
  11. Alright cool! Again thanks alot there! This is my first custom build and Ive been worrying about everything haha. Such as value, quality, preformance, and the such, but now all that is left is to buy it and build it. Only way i can mess that up is by storing static electricity when working with the parts...or snapping the mobo in half XD

    True. :lol:

    Don't purchase a static wrist strap though - they're pretty pointless anymore, when you build, build on a clean surface and you'll be fine.
  13. clean as in non carpet? Such as wood flooring?

    Like a clean table or desk be sure to use windex and remove any dirt from the surface before laying all the parts out.
