Don't get to defensive please! It's not that we think the A10-5800K is a bad option, we're concerned of us the best option for the OP. ^^

You and I are on the same page. I don't think we are that far off from eachther. It's misunderstanding on our end thinking you're saying it's THE BEST OPTION

and your thinking we're saying it's a FLAT OUT BAD Option
I think it's a good one but more flexibility is the best option, if he doesn't have the cash then it's worth waiting a little wink.gif

I understand - but my point is, you don't have any less flexibility with the APU. It won't bottleneck unless you're running an extremely high end GPU such as the 7970, and even then it won't bottleneck any sooner than anything else he'd be able to run, such as the i3 3220, FX6300, ect.

I'm just getting a little defensive because I see so many people who have never even used these APU's claim outrageous and ridiculous things about them. I've even seen people say their compared to the HD4000 which is absolutely false because the 7660D blows the HD4000 out of the water.

Has been watching this thread. Finally decides to go dig up my APU build pics:




http://www.overclock.net/t/1325483/build-log-completed-the-rents-christmas-surprise-amd-5800k-apu-build


That score is 1/10 of an FX-8350 and HD 7970 Quadfire.

I'ma go ahead and throw in my 2 pennies worth of not so humble information lol,... go to YouTube, and look at the videos comparing APU from AMD and the iWhatever Intel is overpricing,... youll see a difference, both good and bad. The overall I got from the videos was that the APU would be a rather decent and ultimately lower priced way to go. For the record, a lot of those videos I viewed were from last year using the bulldozer(?) design and A6 series, and not the later PileDriver chips like the A10-5800/K series. No, there isnt too much difference between the two chipset designs, just a few improvements.

In the videos they were testing with Skyrim and some other stuff. All running rather well in full HD.

Now, for the personal view. I bought the A10-5800k, and couldnt be more impressed with it. I've OC'd the CPU side to 4.6Ghz stable and constant. Looking to OC the GPU side of the APU is what lead me to this thread, and after reading the posts, I just thought Id let you know most of you are wrong if youre sayin that this APU can handle ''new'' games. I tested it before OC, and before adding a 2Gb gpu to crossfire with, and it ran fine.

With that said, some of the posts are correct that a cheap build, with a lower chipset on the motherboard, just the APU by itself, and come decent 1866 ram would run most newer-ish games on lowered settings,... but just upping the ram to 2133 improves the systems ability greatly. People are building media center PCs using 300watt PSUs lol,... these chips are awesome.


So the answer is yes, this APU can handle most things rather well, and its easily OC-able if you know basic OC workings. If you add a little love with an add on GPU(6670 is highest that crossfires with the A10), and maybe some better ram, it becomes a rather decent beast.

If you want info on my build, Ill be glad to post, but didnt wanna spend the time on a thread from a few months ago haha. Currently, with my A10/6670 Crossfire, 16Gb 2133 ram, I play Assassin's Creed II on MAXED OUT settings @ 1920x1200.... no issues. and that not an ''old game'', neither is the new 3DMark(I plan on later reinstalling the whole system, running tests with just APU, then APU OCd, then add the GPU card, then OC that),... so when I do, if anyone is interested Id be glad to waste some time taking pics of the build/benchmarks/WEI and such.
