Considering an A10 5800k for LAN/HTPC build..

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
The good people OCN I need some assistance...its been some time since i've posted...i am actually building a new pc and would love to know a couple of things pertaining to the a10 5800k...

1.) What video card pairs with the IGPU of the chip
2) what kind of performance for gaming and general use can I get out of the chip?
3) Can this chip carry a gtx 660ti or 7870 if I choose to get a single card?

I used a 560ti at one point and it was running every game (deadspace 2, cod, borderlands, medal of honor, AC) I played at the time very well..will I notice any differences with this chip coming from a 2500k? I literally only use my pc to game or browse the web and do light productivity... I want this built to use to take to LAN parties and just have ... Can someone please tell me the performance i can expect from the chip? and the paired gpu? and if it will bottleneck any future card I may add... Thanks in advance everyone! smile.gif

Basically, the only outstanding feature is using the iGPU. When talking CPU performance, even an i3 paired with a low-end discrete GPU will outperform it (in basically everything, including gaming). Great chip if you're not interested in using a discrete card (due to space or power constraints)

1) AMD 6670
2) As an IGPU, compared to Intel HD3000 (or even 4000), the A10 beats it hands down. As a CPU, its a bit lower than the i3, but you can oc this one (A10) thumb.gif
3) Yes, but I wouldn't recommend more than a one 1080p monitor setup.

It is a good bang-for-your-buck.

yeah i only plan on using 1080p to be honest,..playing games like mass effect 3, assassins creed 3, deadspace, battlefield..etrc...just to let you know..i've played consoles for yearrrrssss...and have been happy with performance..heck, even the wii u impressed me...with its speculated setup and performance...eventually in the summer im gonna have a second rig from intel... but for the next few months i juss wanna know if this chip will run borderlands 2., the new medal of honor at moderate settings, cod, alan wake, etc...

I agree with this! thumb.gif

I have my 5600k running at 4.6Ghz and it games well when I run it with a 7870. I just turn off the onboard graphics and it will supply the card as well as my old 955be did at 4.0ghz.

I normally have the onboard graphics enabled and running dual graphics with a 6570.

What avg. frames on 1080p do you get with Crysis 2/BF3 on the 5600K? I've been thinking on getting the 5800K since it's a unlocked Quad-Core with an iGPU that I can use in case the main GPU dies on me.
