  1. Integrated graphics are usually poor choices for playing games unless you play on low resolution (1366x768) with a mix of low and medium graphic quality for good performance. I assume it would be fine for Minecraft and Amnesia. However, Skyrim....

    See following review of the A8-3850 with a more powerful integrated graphic core. The HD 6410D would be slower than a desktop Radeon HD 6450.

    How will the build be different when I receive the computer? Just replace one with the other? Sorry I'm new to all this building computer stuff!
  3. Just getting some insight :D I need some help with this, as I'm new to this whole computer build your own etc... I would love some help if that's what you offer!
  4. Hey, did you already order the computer, or are you waiting on more input before you press the buy button?

    I don't want to spend time helping if you already bought things. :P But don't mind helping otherwise.
  5. This is the PC I built for work back in February/March, and it will play those games at 1680x1050 and below:

    - 3870K
    - Asus F1A75 V Pro
    - 8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM (Kingston is good)
    - HAF 912

    At medium to high quality. Note the 5800K is coming within a month which will be faster for gaming.

    What was the total price? I'm looking for something in the range of $450
  7. I listed in order the CPU, the motherboard with the right chipset to fit the CPU (FM1 socket), decent RAM, and a case. Those are the guts of your PC. Your local PC store should be able to build it for you for a fee if you don't want to. Add a PSU (I recommend the Corsair CX 430 v2) and a hard drive + optical drive.

    EDIT: Price is around $400-450, just shop around.
  8. If 450 is your price point, you can consider looking at Toms System Builder $500 PC and just cut down on the GPU. http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/radeon-hd-7770-7750-benchmark,3135-8.html These are some lower end GPUs that deliver fairly high frames if you are happy with high / medium quality. You can also look at last quarters SBM where they use a lower end CPU.

    I wouldn't use a Pentium in a day to day all round build. Bottom line, too slow.
  10. The graphic core in Llano APUs (AMD's "A" series) can be Crossfired with a Radeon HD 6xxx series graphic card up to the Radeon HD 6670. Anything faster than that or any Radeon HD card of a different series, or any nVidia card will automatically disable the integrated graphic core.

    Crossfire will help boost the performance bit. I am guessing that if you install a Radeon HD 6670 in the PC and graphic drivers recognizes the card, then the combined performance will probably be equal to a Radeon HD 6750; more or less.

    I just looked up the 500 build, looks pretty decent to me! I would need some help putting it together though because I'm pretty much lost as of now :heink:
  12. I would go with the following from Newegg.


    1x GIGABYTE GA-880GM-USB3 AM3+ AMD 880G USB 3.0 HDMI ...
    1x G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 ...
    1x Rosewill FBM-01 Dual Fans MicroATX Mini Tower ...
    1x COOLER MASTER eXtreme Power Plus RS500-PCARD3-US ...
    1x Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM SATA ...
    1x LITE-ON DVD Burner - Bulk Black SATA Model iHAS124-04 - OEM
    1x Linkworld Electronic LLC FAN-9 90mm Case Fan - OEM

    For $367 before rebates.

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/ComboDealDetails.aspx?ItemList=Combo.983101


    Add the following Radeon HD 7750 for $110 before rebate:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102969

    Total in cart before rebates = $477 + $16 shipping. No taxes unless you live in a California or any state where Newegg has a warehouse. There are a total of 3 rebates for $35 total. That brings down the total estimate cost to $458.

    add windows 7 for 130 bucks and Thats a bit over budget :kaola:
  14. Best answer
    Windows 7 is only $100:

    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116986

    And I would have to say that the build posted above is much better than the build first posted. But I would say you can do it G530 style for cheaper.

    Intel Celeron G530
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819116409
    $50

    AsRock H61M-DGS
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157315
    $45

    G.SKILL Value Series 4GB
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231421
    $21

    Athena Power Case
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811192289
    $20

    CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026&Tpk=cx430
    $45

    SAMSUNG 22X DVD Burner
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827151244
    $17

    Western Digital Caviar Blue 500GB
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822136769
    $70

    That's $268 total, and with Windows its $368.

    Windows 7 OEM:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16832116986
    $100

    That allows for about a HD6670:

    Sapphire HD6670 GDDR5
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102958
    $90

    That should drop it around $458. You can go cheaper on a few of the items, like the DDR3 version of the 6670 instead:

    Sapphire HD6670 DDR3:
    http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102988
    $65

    That would put it at about $433, which would cover shipping and whatever.

    How do you think this would withstand gaming?
  16. I've built quite a few computers with the Celeron G530 in it, and I even have one now with that same 6670 GDDR5. It plays all the games I want to at pretty high settings. Given my resolution is only 1440x900. I also haven't tried any high end games. I have tried Skyrim though, and it ran fine at medium settings.

    This is about as cheap as a gaming rig can go, and this is a pretty darn good one. You can also upgrade the GPU in the future if you so please.
