I can't really get it lower than this. I haven't really looked into FM2 lately, so I don't know how it performs on that board.

Ah, that actually shaves the price alot, so I can work a little better here.

Antec is a bit more reliable in their parts, so I would go for that.

60 bucks seems like a lot of money to spend on a case. I do not need a power supply either. (lol, what else am I going to need eh?)

I was wondering if the A10 would be better than a G860+7750?

Deemo, one thing with the A10 is that it benefits massively from faster ram, because it uses it as VRAM. So the scaling is kinda immense.

You are correct, totally forgot (shows how much I work with FM2)

I didn't really know you didn't need like all of this stuff. I'm assuming the power supply is at least partially decent.

Unless I am missing something, it seems this is all you need:

The PSU will be a corsair 430w. So the G860+7770 is better than A10?
