Intel Celeron G460 + AMD Radeon HD 6450/6550, Intel Dual Core G620 or AMD A6 3500 APU?

post #1 of 5

Hello members of OCN,
First of all, this is my first thread here, so hoping you guys will help a fellow noob out, I am going to start a gaming cafe + cyber cafe. There will be good PCs with better config, but the PCs that will run only CS or DotA will have to be budget constricted.

I can get either:
1. Intel Celeron G460 (LGA1155) + AMD Radeon HD 6450
2. Intel Dual Core G620 (LGA1155)
3. AMD A6 3500 APU (FM1)

Option 1 is the cheapest for me. So will it be good enough for 1024x768 res? I don't know what the G460's IGP is, so I added the GPU. It will be out of my budget to add a GPU to G620. The AMD, although more expensive comes with HD 6350D. If its worth it, I will got for the APU. So guys give your opinion.

I'm guessing gaming isnt the primary focus of this cyber cafe. When you say CS / Dota, you mean the originals or CS:S/CS:GO and Dota2? I've played source games on Intel HD2000 graphics @ 1366 x 768, L4D2 was playable @ medium detail settings. If you sticking with older games option 2 is probably good enough for 1024x768. If your looking to support newer games then the A6-3500 probably is your best bet.

The PCs that will run newer games will have G620 or i3 2100 if possible and Gigabyte AMD Radeon HD 7750. So I happy about those. But there will be a few PCs that will be for cyber cafe for internet browsing. However, they will also have games, just in case, there are gamers who want to play CS:S or CS 1.6, or maybe Dota, Command & Conquer. But yes, primary focus is not gaming. Btw, is G460's IGP HD2000? And is G620's IGP good enough without a GPU? Will the buil-in graphics be better or as good as G460 with HD 6550 grade card?

I'm not exactly sure where Intel draws the line between HD and HD2000, The G460's IGP is clocked at a slower speed so performance will be worse. It's tough to answer your questions because I think there might be situations where a G460 + 6450/6550 might outperform a G620 + IGP but honestly I would ignore the G460 as an option- it's a single core cpu w/ HT. I wouldnt even want to run a modern version of Windows on a single core cpu anymore. I have to imagine that overall the G620 is the better choice. When I think of uses for the G460, the first thing that comes to mind is dedicated fileserver running linux definately not gaming.

@BinaryDemon - So I researched a bit and the IGP of A6 3500 beats HD 4000 in MW3 at 1440x900. And its better than HD 3000. So I think I will go for the APUs. Becoz you can play games pretty much decent on them. However, I was going for 1024x768 monitors to save costs. Should i opt for 1336x768? Will I bottleneck the APU and its IGP at 1024x768?
