SLI or Crossfire: A-8 5600k + 6670? maybe
Additional Comments: Hello, and thank you for reading. This would mainly be used for browsing, but I would game lightly. This is my first build and it's mainly to replace my crappy desktop 5+ yrs old. I was thinking of an A8- 5600k + 6670 for some slightly better graphics, or I could pick up a 7770 if it was cheap enough on boxing day (sub $100) and get a different CPU.
Games: (Graphic's don't matter too much as long as I can play: Starcraft II, The Secret World, FFXIV [when it's re-released], Saint's row the third, metro, etc.) I would only be playing games for 4~8 hours a week so it is not too important, worst case scenario is that I keep playing the games below on my laptop.
7770 is an excellent card for the money. I was going to suggest a similar build myself. I don't know if i3 is worth it, though, as Hyperthreading doesn't help games. I might go with a G860 instead and use that money to upgrade the card to a 650 Ti or 7850 1GB.
The AMD APUs are pretty nice, but a crossfire 6670 is not even going to keep up with a 7750. I would only suggest them if you don't intend on getting a graphics card at all.
Thank you for the reply, I was looking at the G860, and it is (as far I can tell) pretty similar to the i3-3220 but $50 cheaper. Is the difference between the i3 with the hyper-threading that great? I was looking at this thread: http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/319936-28-intel-core-... and most people were saying they would go with with the i3.
I think that the rest of the build is looking very good though d(^.^d)
