  1. This is a bad CPU choice. I would go with an i3 3220.

    Also, what is the resolution of your monitor?
  2. the a10 has an integrated apu. if your going to get a video card you should look at a fx-6300 if you want amd. whats your total budget and what country?
  3. I would replace the AMD processor and go for an Intel processor. If you have the money I would say an i5-2500k or if not , i3-2120 .
  4. without more info this is partially guessing. save some money on the motherboard and psu and put it into the cpu and gpu.

  6. No, I'm sorry to say that is a bad combination of parts.

    First off, we need you to answer a few questions. There's absolutely no way a recommendation can be given until we know a few key things.

    -What is your budget?
    -What country do you live in?
    -Do you live near a Microcenter?
    -Also, would you be interested in overclocking your CPU?
    -And finally, do you plan on doing anything other than playing BF3 with this rig?

    My budjet is $800 I could do $850 if necessary
    I live in australia
    I dont no what a microcenter is....
    I wouldn't be interested in overclocking as soon as I get it but down the track I might
    I am going to use this mainly bf3 but I will probably play ac3 and sleeping dogs because Im preety sure they come with the EVGA 660 ti in a build that someone else suggested.
