I'm building a computer for my munchkins , It is discovered they like need for speed world , so I'd like to build something on the cheap that can take a bit of abuse the oldest one is 3 1/2 so I don't need super expensive but this was the build list I was thinking of

http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817170024&name=Power-Supplies

I think that is good I have hdds mice , keyboards

and some crappy crt monitor that works for an odd reason that still works

think that would be toddler friendly ?

^ Something like that would work but get dual channel memory as a minimum or you will bottleneck your APU. DDR3-1600 would also be recommended. Also, avoid that mediocre PSU like the plague.

A single 2GB stick just isn't going to cut it. The APU is going to take a chunk of that as VRAM, Windows will take probably more than half of what is left, the remainder will barely be enough to run a few browser tabs before it starts dipping into virtual memory. Not to mention, the serious bottleneck you'll create by having both single channel and below ideal speeds there.


Get the A6-5400K for $10 more. The reason I say this, is that there aren't any comparisons that I have seen, that show the real world performance of the 5300's GPU compared to the other trinity chips. Depending on its ROP configuration, it could be as bad as HALF the performance in games as the 5400K if it has a smaller ROP configuration (unknown at this time), so until there is more information available, the 5400K is the way to go for an uber-budget gaming machine. (The 5300 may be "fine" but I haven't found a comparison with it included yet so wouldn't want to take the risk on it yet).

The 5400K performs in games just shy of the 6550D found in the top tier llano chips, an impressive feat, and you could overclock the iGPU enough to beat the A8-3850 in gaming performance across the board.

Check your local classifieds for a deal on RAM maybe. Try to find a 2x2GB 1600 kit minimum.
