So here's what I'm thinking for my customer: A8-3870k $120 @newegg.com Gigabyte GA-A75-D3H FM1 AMD A75 $90 @newegg.com Sapphire 2GB 6950 $190 @newegg.com CORSAIR Vengence 8GB(2x4)1600 $48 @newegg.com Antec EarthWatts Series EA-750 80 PLUS Bronze $100 @newegg.com (He wants to be able to XFire 6950's later) Western Digital Cavier Blue 500GB $70 RAIDMAX Tornado ATX-238WU $63 @newegg.com He wants a gaming APU build and this is what we came up with. Any recommendations will be taken. Don't ask me why he wants an APU build. Total is $581. He has Windows and a monitor. I like it. Eventually he wants a CPU cooler to overclock tha 3870k to at least 3.5Hz.
Sometimes, what the customer wants is not what he needs to be getting. If it is a gaming system, an APU WILL NOT do.
Alrighty, so I talked with him and he was thinking of either a Phenom or FX. He said either an FX-6120 or x6 1045T. So which ones better for a gamer?
