My first amd rig - Page 2

post #11 of 41
If it's not for gaming, but you *may* game on it once and a while a 7750 is perfect - it's very low power and still packs a decent enough punch BUT not the one you picked, which is DDR3, not even GDDR3 which = horrible. Get the instead for the same price.. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814161403. It's 1gb of GDDR5 which will be FAR faster then 2gb of DDR3. Besides, the card really doesn't have the muscle to push more than 1gb anyways so it's by far the best of em.

Also, if a non gaming rig, the 6300 will serve you very well, especially if you do anything with VM's or the like

See my above edit, the one you posted isn't very good for the price, even with 10 bucks saved it's not worth it at all, even for those that don't game much thumb.gif

Looks good, though he doesn't need that much gaming power so with the roughly 65 bucks saved going from that 7850 to the gddr5 7750 he can plop in a 8320 and get better performance for what he is doing while saving money wink.gif

Or just save more money & keep the fx-6300 / 7750 combo since he probably wants to keep the 16gb of ram

Compared to other components there seems to be too much ram. You don't really need 16gb unless you are doing stuff like photoshop and videoediting.
Also the GPU runs games really really bad.
The PSU looks like crap. You should never save on the PSU it could cost you your components.

While I agree the apevia is crap, the rest of the system is not primary a gaming rig.

If he's dual booting between 7 and ubuntu and doing programming, etc, I'm sure the 16gb is of good use to him. The 7750 GDDR5 version is perfectly good for his needs. In fact, with that instead of a more powerful card he can plop in a 8320 8-core instead of the 6300 and it will help out his tasks a good margin more and still be more then enough. The 7750 may be on the low end for games, but it will still play the newest ones just fine, albeit on lower settings. Regardless gaming doesn't seem to be his goal so it's a perfect mix of 'just enough' muscle while sipping power.

On a side note, 16gb is useful if you like to use ramdisks as well. I dedicated 4gb of it to some programs I use daily and no SSD will ever touch the speed of a ramdisk. Again, this can all come in handy to him and with prices as low as they are for 16gb of ddr3 1866 it's well worth it.

16gb of ram isn't too much at all I build android ROMs so that 16gb is good for me anyway how about this PSU ? It has great reviews they say its laud but I don't mind that at all it should be good enough to power my build just fine till I get up about 60$ to buy a good one huh? http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000BKBVT8/ref=mw_dp_img?is=l

Also it says nothing about crossfire would I still be able to stick 2 GPUs together and run crossfire? I mean idc about crossfire but its always a option in the future when cards come down

Same with 7750 but I don't recommend this:

Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-970A-UD3 ATX AM3+ Motherboard ($104.99 @ Newegg)

Power Supply: Corsair Builder 430W 80 PLUS Certified ATX12V Power Supply ($19.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $560.90
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)
(Generated by PCPartPicker 2013-03-18 17:11 EDT-0400)

See there's a $4 difference between 7750 GDDR5 and 7770 so I wouldn't recommend that last build.

EDIT: fixed last build with the GDDR5 7750 model.
