Stay with Amd A10 5800k Or get FX 4300?

I am currently using the AMD A10 5800k APU as a CPU cause i have disable the iGPU (got a HIS HD 7770 From a friend)

I was thinking about returning the APU/Mobo for AM3+ Mobo and a FX 4300.
Is that a good idead? from reading online it seems the CPUs trade blows about the same

If anyone have any suggestions it would be great (Budget 200 for CPU/Mobo)

    yes deffintley send back ur fm2 and trininty cpu. get an am3+ and a vishera cpu. they perform better, and u can upgrade to steamroller. there will be steamroller apus to but there not goign to be as strong as the am3+ versions. you have a dedicated gpu so no point in having fm2. fm2 is only for minor gaming its not the peformance spectrum
  2. fm2 is more for home theather htpcs tbh. not meant for gaming.
  3. I don't think the performance upgrade is good enough to warrant the change.... unless you already have an buyer for your current MB and CPU. Maybe you should wait for the A10-6800k and see if it can CrossFire with the 7750-70. Here are the RUMOR/Preliminary specs for the chip.

  4. that sounds like a bad and not performance oriented idea, the fm2 socket isnt made for gaming but for htpcs.

    he will see alot better performance with that.

    also crossfiring 7700 isnt worth it.

    were talking about avaible products not futuristic ones that arent even out.

    but nice idea :)
  5. i think i am gonna return it and get the fx 4300 + AM3 mobo (more CPU Choices) and returning will be easy because i still have 5 days for full refund on amazon.

    Am not planning to CF 2 7770s, if am a buying my own Card i would get at least an 7850/660
  6. sweet. i think uve done the right decision.

    an FX-6300 and ASRock 970 PRO3 AM3+ combo deal: $199.98
  8. that boards alright, but i find the asus board is of better quality and isnt as finicky with the memory choices.
  9. it is fine for gaming, ultra high settings no.... Just go for the 6300 FX, its a great cpu. for gaming its great and affordable. no need to have crazy high Clock frequencies
  10. Thanks guys for all the help, one more thing. how am gonna return the CPU? i mean what to put it in
  11. hey freestyling o recommanded the other board since the asrock 970 doesnt natively support ddr3 1600mhz. thats why i recommanded the other board, but we, its up to u.

  17. er u need the boxes to return it :P
  18. i know (: gonna have to improvise
  19. pizza boxes and tape :D
  20. lol doubt i would get my money back :P
  21. oh well, maybe just keep what u got at worst, isnt that bad.
  22. i think i can pull it off, amazon likes to give me my money back 2 days before they come for the item. If this the case for me again i can get the new CPU/Mobo and uses those boxes for the return :D

    glad i kept the stock cooler
