CPU(APU): AMD A10-5800k 3.8 GHz (OC'd to 4.5)
GPU: 7660D (Integrated into the APU)
MoBo: MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 Micro ATX
RAM: Corsair Vengeance Blue 8GB 1600
HDD: Seagate 500GB
PSU: Corsair CX500
Case: NZXT Source 210
This comes to about $399
The Intel build is more focused on graphics, while the AMD build is focused more on the processor. The 7660D in the A10-5800k doesn't look that great.
So my main questions are: Which build is better? Is the Pentium G860 a solid CPU (it's dual core, while the 5800k is quad core)?
Any feedback would be much appreciated, and feel free to add or change anything that you think would enhance the overall build. Remember to keep it in the $400-$450 range.
If you have a 400 dollar build, i personally would go with the intel build. Discrete graphics is always better. Also, its more upgradable, with the 1155 socket. you can add a better processer/gpu if you ever want to, where as the apu build you are somewhat limited.
You also might want to look into a 80 plus power supply, some cooler masters i have read reviews about ar enot the greatest quality and do not put out the Watts advertised.
39.99 after MIR , i know mail in rebates kind of suck, but if you got this then you should not need to upgrade the psu when and if you decide to put in a different cpu and gpu, also its a good power supply and a steal at 39.99
