Well, i need a new PC for gaming, there are some things from my old pc i will be reusing because they are new parts i bought earlier this year: the case, a 500w power supply, and a samsung 1TB HDD.

What i DO need is, CPU, GPU, MOBO, Memory.
Since i do light gaming, mostly MMORPG'ss and my resolution is 1366x768 at first i went for an APU with no discrete video card, thinking the APU itself will do the job but now i put some more pennies together and i setup an Intel build.

Here it is:




Rate my build please, my goal is to play almost any game on high settings for money i used.
Thanks!

Thoughts?

how is this better than an APU a10-5800k with a discrete card?

you should be able to play most new games on low settings. the gpu is the weakest link. goodbye

I saw the video, but he did not test the i3 with a discrete card, ofc it was gonna suck with just the Integrated GPU you are not supossed to game with that thing.
I'm interested on an "APU+discrete vs I3+discrete" comparison to be fair.

Thanks, that's the best GPU i found for less than a hundred dollars.
I'm open for suggestions though.

I'd throw some more bucks and get the HD 7750 instead of the 6670.

Would that put me straight into high settings safe build?
