help in build new desktop 500$!!!! - Page 2

post #11 of 30
This'll be a lot better than your current A10-5800K setup but you're just better off sticking a 7770 or 7850 in your current A10-5800K based computer.

But keep in mind that you wont be able to upgrade to the next generation Intel CPUs as they will be using a new socket.

What are the exact specs of your current computer?

My current AMD is:
CPU: AMD a10-5800k
MOBO: Asrock fm2 am75 Pro 4 M
Memory: Gskill sniper 8gb(2x4) 2133 ddr3
Storage: WD blue 500gb
Case cooler master elite 430
PSU: corsair cx430

Should i go ahead with some i5 ivy bridge quad core? I don't know much about that but i can change my budget to be 600$ to get a good tower!

I would pitch the extra $100 to the CPU still then, upgrade it to an i5-3470.

The A10-5800K is pretty much an i3 (in processing power terms) but it has a much more powerful integrated GPU which can actually play FIFA 13 on max settings at 1920x1080.

I included the 7770 in there if you want to play more demanding games like Skyrim, Battlefield 3 and such which the A10-5800K can't handle. It's well worth the extra $50 if you stick with the 7770.

If you can stretch your budget to about $600 or so you can get a 7850 2GB which will max out ANYTHING (except for Metro 2033 and Crysis 1 and 3) at 1920x1080 and personally is well worth saving up for; but at that point you'll want to consider getting an i3-3220 based build instead as there will be no reason to stick with an A10-5800K if you're getting a GPU like that.

the performance of a hybrid crossfire A10-5800k + 1 GB HD 6670 DDR5 cannot match the performance of a single GPU HD 7770? i would like to ask because i'm only confuse of which is better ....? smile.gif

In most games an i3 won't be that far off from an i5 as a lot of games nowdays are GPU bound which means they require more GPU power than CPU power so a slightly weaker CPU paired with a stronger GPU would be better for gaming instead of a more powerful CPU with a weaker GPU.

Unless you'll be playing a lot of Battlefield 3 multiplayer in 64-player maps, Planetside 2 and other demanding multiplayer games like that, you'll be just fine with an i3. thumb.gif

I'd get this:

I never mentioned anything about Hybrid Crossfire, besides a single GPU will always be better than two GPUs that are Crossfired/SLi'd to make them collectively as powerful as the single GPU.

i'm only asking,because he can make only an upgrade by purchasing a good HD 6670 DDR5 then to have a hybrid crossfire setup ..... and i think A10-5800k can be overclock with a good power phase design mobo with a fast ram like 1866 Mhz (and above) with a good CPU cooler ... plus he can make an upgade with his PSU for overclocking purpose ....but still im not sure if that idea is much more better than your suggestion(a single HD 7770 GPU).

hope other people have experience with this can share there thoughts ....

The 7770 would be much better, he could just upgrade his motherboard. FIFA 13 isn't really a demanding game in the first place.

Bottom line, you can probably run Fifa 13 on the integrated Intel HD 3000 or HD4000, depending on which CPU he ends up going with, it's also fine for HD movies too.
7750 or 7770 will be fine if he wants to take some load off the CPU and get some decent framerates for the price (most games at medium in this case)

But if OP is gonna stick with Fifa, or other less demanding games (i dont know... Left4Dead 2, Modern Warfare 2, Bioshock 1 for instance?) even a GT630 will do the job and also keep the noise down.

That seems like a solid system to me. Just drop a radeon 6670 in there and run in dual graphics. The two together are very close to an fx-4300 with a 7770!
