Good evening gents,

im planning on building a low budget gaming system but im not sure if it is ok.
i want to play recent games like warcraft 2, cabal 2, league of legends and so on with at least a mid setting. i asked for assistance from and this is what they showed me:

- amd TRINITY A10-5800K 4.2Ghz (GPU-HD7660)
-Mboard: GIGABYTE F2A75M-D3H HDMI SATA3.0 USB3.0
-Hard Disk: WESTERN DIGITAL 500GB SATA3.0 (6Gb/s)
-Memory: TEAM ELITE 4GB DDR3 1333Mhz
w/ HEATSINK (gaming ram)

-Graphics: AMD RADEON graphics (upto 2GB - HyperMemory)
-Chassis: FRONTIER ARES or Battleship gaming chassis
• USB/AV/Power button on the top for friendly usage
• Metal mesh front panel with the best ventilation
• Dual Fan: 120mm LED Fan (front); 80mm Fan (side)
-Power Solutions: TrendSonic 600Watts PSU


this is going to be my 1st build and i have been trying to read around if this combination is ok but i really dont have enough knowledge to really decide on things and im really hoping for any kind of feedback if this build is ok.

any kind of guide will be very much appreciated. Thank you

That RAM is slow and not from a reliable manufacturer. Pay a bit more and get DDR3 2133 MHz from G.Skill or Corsair, because on an APU you need fast RAM and at least 8GB because the CPU and GPU have shared RAM.

That power supply is complete trash as well. Get a Seasonic S12 430W or 520W. I don't know about any of those case choices.

Will you be playing graphically intensive games? If so, youre gonna need at LEAST 1600mhz ram. If youre just gonna play mmorpgs, then youre fine with 4gh 1600mhz ram. I recommend getting a phenom or something. If you like like intel, you could get a pentium and a decent graphics card which will spank the a10 5800k.

i would not recommend a apu unless u r very short on money
a 7750 with a pentium would be way better

^agreed

If you could get the extra money, you could spend a bit more for a 7770. Just be sure to get a good psu. Antec, corsair, FSP and seasonic are good brands.
