If you're using the integrated GPU, RAM is very important. Dual-channel is a must for optimal performance, and the faster the RAM speed, the more fps you get in-game. 2133~2400+ is recommended.

What exactly is the use of an apu?Seems to me to be somewhere between the i3 and FX 6300 for gaming.

generally amd's apu's have better graphics than an equal cpu powered intel chip with integrated graphics..... the integrated graphics in them are intro level gaming on the better ones... anyone wanting serious detail levels with good fps will have to seek other graphics options. My son, however, was quite happy with his apu based computer stating that the graphics was still better than his cousins xbox... also the integrated gpu in the apu can be used in xfire with a similar low end gpu of the same series from amd... you would have to look up the specific cards that will work with what apu integrated gpu's though....

summary... apu = decent cpu power and decent gpu power for low price in a one piece solution.

Yes the AMD are better in iGPUs than Intels but dual graphics is a broken tech.I'd actually planned to buy a dual graphics rig with the A10 6800K and HD6450 until I found this:http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/dual-graphics-crossfire-benchmark,3583.html

hey guys what do you think of this ddr3 kit?
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820313399
post #699 of 776
Based on the reviews I'd prob stay clear of them
I normaly don't put to much stock in Newegg reviews but the problem ratio is way high
I'd go with Ripjaws they have always done me good
mine are 2133 & I'm very happy with they way they are running

Quick review of dual channel ram on my a8-5600k after running single for a while, cpu is at 4ghz, turbo disabled.
Only benchmark software I've got is passmark but on single channel 4gb 1866mhz (crucial ballistix tactical 9-9-9-27) the 3d score was 541, thats with stock gpu clock and 512mb shared mem, overclocking made a 7 point difference :/
With 8gb dual channel same make memory etc, 1gb shared to gpu, stock clocks it scored 903 and with gpu oc to 844mhz it gets 927. Quite happy with that compared to others on the passmark database, think its second highest scoring hd 7560d.
Dont have an exact number or bench as such but in Dayz mod there is an fps increase of 4 to 10fps depending on town/countryside, not playing much else atm.
