Hi guys I'm planing to buy something like this this week:

APU FM2 AMD A8-5500,
MB FM2 A85X ASRock FM2A85X EXTREME4,
RAM Patriot Viper 3 Black Mamba 2x4gb 2133mhz cl9,
Ssd 120gb Silicon Power V60,
DVD-RW samsung black,
500W Spire 1072 Black Tower

Any advice about this configuration?? Can my 2133mhz ram runs on this board as apu only supports 1866mhz bus??

Is this SSD reliable?

And most important: Do I even need optical drive?? Can I install Windows 7 (pirate copy) with usb flash drive and does my drivers come on CD's?

I never use my cd exept for system reinstall. Everything i need i get from internet or flash drives. But i dunno about new drivers from the box :/ 


suggestions and comments pls!

you will be able to manually set the RAM frequency higher , but when you start it will default to 1866 MHz , or perhaps even lower

You should be able to download drivers using another computer , and install them from a USB stick once you have windows installed the same way

for this current config you are probably right, but this ram is good for an upgrade to a10-6800k that will be available in june that will support 2133mhz memory.

I wanted to even buy a6-5400k for now but its not available in my country for some reason these days, that i could sell later to get new processor and mby add 7750 or higher (3rd gen apu will support 7xxx gpu in as i understand). add that and new power supply and i could take on some serious gaming i think.
