You'll get much better graphics performance as well as more core performance. | Report abuse Reply to Deemo13 Papadoo November 21, 2012 9:32:06 PM Deemo13 said:I would go with the new A10 over the older A8.

I doubt the inwim case is good quality anyway , and white cases look silly with black monitors/keyboards etc IMO With either the A8 or A10 builds I'd pay a little more for a Kingston HyperX lovo 1.35 volt 1600 MHz kit of RAM . Set manually to 1.5 volts it will run at1866 MHz and improve graphics performance | Report abuse Reply to Outlander_04 Register or log in to remove Ask the community Post an answer Tom's Hardware>Forum>Systems>Is this a good build?> Related ressources: ForumIs this a good amateur PC Build ?
