Or buying HD 6670 with GDDR5 card and 430 watt psu. Cosair CX V2. Which one will be better value or price. 2nd one isgonna be atleast 50% cheaper.

    Purpose is mostly gaming.

    Also gonna upgrade ram in 2nd one.

    Use the edit function. Also, the first one, by miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and miles and you probably get the point. ;)

    second option will require you to upgrade next year or so. so its not really a good choice.
    the 5800k will do donuts around the pentium. dont forget that the 5800K beats the intel i3 ivy bridge CPUs at mostly everything for the same price..

    Your processor "licks the balls" my friend, dont go anywhere near the second option because that processor isnt going to do much. 1st option, i hope it is an option and not just wishful thinking.

    enough walkin around the park. you have made enough threads already about this subject here, here and here also, your current setup is dead already as per here

    so just take our advice or GTFO. i dont like being rude, but this is basically spamming.


    it sounds like this is just wishful thinking to me like RCoon said.
    EarthDog and RCoon say thanks.

    Aww DDD is so cute when he tries to act all mad and grown up. :laugh:

    Anyway, just get the AMD setup. It doesn't use more power than your current setup, and it will be miles faster.

    For pretty much the the same price as the 5800K you can get an FX6300 with 14MB cache. That would be my personal choice.

    cant you see his use will be gaming?
    you cant game on a 6300. you will need to get a GPU too.

    the 5800K comes with an inbuilt 7660.

    typo. also it will aafter all be sharing youe memory, so its not going to be as fast as a discrete of the same make.

    Of course, the performance of the 7660d is well.... I guess there are some games it could play and it is certainly better than a Radeon 6670. So yes, for a budget build rather than a gaming build the APU is better. Gonna have to work on my rage a bit :)

    Hey, all of them are about different topics one is about the whole build, one ram, one psu, one mobo, and this one is that I had an idea but it was a bad one.Also you are right it is wishful thinking but my threads are not spams.

    this is the "system builders advice" sub forum. you can ask about the whole system in one go.

    One thread with a list of things you have in mind will do.


    Also you were already advised to pick the 5800K before in this thread


    also all of your subsequent threads were about buying motherboard based on the APU....

    Now my budget is 30000 and Hdd is not necessary as I can use old one. Should I still use the apu. Monitor should be included
