FX8120 vs A10-5800k for a PC without a GPU Tags: CPUs GPUs Motherboards Last response: January 9, 2013 2:29 PM in CPUs Share stevydinho January 8, 2013 4:01:50 PM I'm building a PC no more than £300/$450 ish and I'm stuck between an FX-8120 or an A10-5800k. If I gotthe 8120 I'd use the onboard motherboard graphics in the ASRock FM2A75M. Which CPU should I get?

A10-5800K is socket FM2 like the motherboard you chose, while the FX 8120 is socket AM3+ and requires a socket AM3+ motherboard. As to which processor is the better choice, depends on you plan to use the computer.

FinneousPJ a b à CPUs January 8, 2013 4:20:54 PM I'd guess the A10 is better suited if your multitasking does not include intensive tasks. stevydinho January 8, 2013 4:32:46 PM Why is this? Is it because of the integrated GPU? FinneousPJ a b à CPUs January 8, 2013 4:58:14 PM Yes and it's cheaper. iam2thecrowe a b à CPUs a b V Motherboard January 8, 2013 6:23:34 PM well you would have to buy some sort of graphics card with the FX because it has none onboard. get the a10, its fast enough for any general computing and has a decent gpu which is very good for general computing and is capable of playng a game or 2. stevydinho January 9, 2013 2:29:51 PM I'll get the A10, cheers guys Can't find your answer ?
