Hey mate,

You told me to get this build

CPU: AMD FX-4300 3.8GHz Quad-Core Processor

Motherboard: ASRock 970 Extreme3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard

Video Card: MSI Radeon HD 7850 2GB Video Card


However, They couldnt get the CPU and the motherboard. They did say however they would would do better... So i now have this...



Motherboard -AsRock AM3+970 Extreame4

Processor - AMD FX 6100 AM3 -BLACK RT

Video Card is the same - MSI Radeon HD 7850 2gb


Is this just as good ? Or better? Will it work the same?

I also managed to swap my old Video Card for a very nice gaming case!

No it would not be. I would stick with the 6100.
November 27, 2012 7:02:56 PM

But everything im being told and i have read says the 6100 is very bad for gaming

It will play games just fine. It won't even come close to bottle necking your GPU. If you could drop the extra $20 for a 6300 that would be better. But it will do what you need it to just fine.

You best be right dude as i missed the deadline to change it.


Im hoping to play BF3, COD, On highish settings 1600x900 res


Fallout 3 , New Vegas , Skyrim and War Z on Ultra.


Are you 10000000000000% Sure i will have no issues what so ever?


I am thinking of trying to get the 6300 is it much of a difference?

It won't be too different at all and at that resolution, a intel pentium and a 7850 could max those games. You will be perfectly fine.

I have this CPU its not going to be any better. Just cheaper.
November 27, 2012 8:18:57 PM

Well, If it will perform better and for cheaper then surely that is the way to go?

Everything i have read about the 6100 is very bad unless i overclock and i have NO IDEA about over clocking so i wont be doing it.

So would saving money and getting this CPU instead be better for me?

Yeah you could get it and it will be fine. All of these CPUs will be basically the same. Gaming is 90% GPU and 10% CPU. I wouldn't be surprised if you installed each of these in your rig and saw absolutely no difference.
November 27, 2012 8:41:20 PM

I think im going to get this one.


Thanks so much for you help.

get an antec vp-450. Cheap and very high quality. Will run a 7850 no problem.
November 27, 2012 10:05:44 PM

Thing is mate, I have no money left at all. I actually cant afford it... All my stuff has been paid for and ordered from suppliers so no refunds there....

I don't know what to tell you. You could chance it with the one you have until you have money for a vp-450. Its only like $36
November 27, 2012 10:10:24 PM

You sure that 450 W will run my pc perfectly + all my fans and stuff?

Do you have like a gazillion LEDs? if not then you will be fine for sure. Any pro will tell you a vp-450 will run a 7850 24/365 no problems. It has plenty of amps on the +12v rail
November 27, 2012 10:16:24 PM

I have just worked some stuff out and i will have about £40 for a PSU.


I need to know the actual brand and wattage of a few good ones so i can show them to him tomorrow. He kept telling me this one was fine and i knew it wasn't.
November 27, 2012 10:17:02 PM

Im from the UK Btw

only buy from Antec, XFX, Seasonic, Corsair.
November 27, 2012 10:25:15 PM

I have found


450W XFX Pro Series ATX PSU with EasyRail™ Technology - £39

November 27, 2012 10:28:09 PM

Il write those down now.

Should i be safe and go for a 500 or 550w?

You can if you like. Anything over 550w will be overkill for your needs.
November 27, 2012 10:30:11 PM

Thanks so much, I wrote those down

and il look for a 500-550w.

Thanks alot dude.

No problem man. Anytime.
November 27, 2012 10:42:37 PM

Lol, Im back again....


In all seriousness what is the max wattage i should need? Are you 100% sure a 450w would be fine with my build?

Or should i go higher to 500/550?

Reason being is the guy who supplies it all and builds the computers, He needs to make a bit of profit so i dont get them as cheap as the internet.

I only want one of those brand names though
November 27, 2012 10:54:48 PM

The problem is, Buying from him i expect to pay like £20 more... So it will be more ike £65 for that PSU.


I really dont understand all this PSU stuff with rails and amerage.... .. However im happy to go with 450w if you say its fine.


I literally need to be told

This Watt

This Brand

Ask him to get it.

While being cheap as possible.

Yes this will be good. I have it and it is great.
November 27, 2012 11:44:48 PM

Right, I have it written down and priced for tomorrow.

I truly hope you are right about this as there is no going back!

Thank you very much for your help.
