AMD a10-5800k help, limit: 606 dollars

Hi I decided that I am going to make my own computer because the people who sell computers are pretty cheap. I choose a AMD a10-5800k because I thought that would give me the best gaming performance, but I am open to suggestions (Especially ones that could get me an i5). I need a processor, motherboard, memory, graphics card(For crossfireX), after stock CPU cooler(Optional), case, OS, DVD burner, and a PSU at 500watt minimum. Another thing if can get more than 30fps I am very happy, yes I have a monitor & keyboard + mouse, would like ideas by 12/26/13, dont care if it's at newegg or tigerdirect or microcenter(Which is near where I live), and I am 13.

I came up with one system:
From Newegg


Hard drive:
(I know that is 500giga byte that is way more than I need)


Video card:



OS: Windows 7: Duh, 100$

CPU cooler:

Processor w/ DVD burner?!?:

Thank you for reading and could you approve all these items being compatible? (BTW I think they are and I have seen benchmarks of the processor and etc.)

  1. I forgot I will do some overclocking if I get a good cooler.
  2. Check out Tom's Hardware's $500 dollar build.,3364.html

    I wouldn't go with the APU because it won't be as good as a seperate gpu and cpu.
  3. The AMD a10 has more CPU power than his 500$ build plus I said I would cross fire the graphics, 7660 + 6670 = 7850. Thanks I am considering that build but the graphics is the same, and i got this info from Andatech.
  4. Err uhm my screen resolution IDK, I am not at my house it is 21 inch. I only know that and why does this matter?

    P.S: Thank you!
  5. Read the anandtech review, not the forums.
    7660D + 6670 = 7770 because 6550D+ 6670=6770
    I don't know where you read that, but your info is incorrect.

    Edit: I meant that the a10 plus a 6670 is similar to a 7770. The system I outlined is better because you could upgrade it down the road to a piledriver fx (83xx series) in the future.
  6. I dont think you saw what I typed a 7660 + 6670 = 7850, and thanks for that suggestion that processor looks good maybe I could choose a better GPU like a GTX 560Ti thats about a 7850 and near but less the price of a 7850.
  7. It doesn't oh thanks SORRY ABOUT MY BAD INFO! I fell so stupid thanks..
  8. Depending on your screen resolution, game, and game settings, a 7770 might not be enough. Judging from the screen size, it is a 1080p monitor or an old 1050p monitor. The 7770 overclocked should be just enough.

  10. WOW never heard of that site part picker, think I would spend less on the case and more on the gpu I'm still undecided
  11. I guess I just get that except with a GTX 650? I'm not sure a HD 7770 is the best graphics card I can get at my range.
