New light gaming rig

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
Hi all I already have a fm2 motherboard and ram now I'm gonna buy and A10-5800k and dual graphics with a 6670 (GDDR5 MEMORY) now I was wondering how much fps would I get on a 24inch TV at 720p with battlefield 3 on high would I get playable fps?

Now then I'm going with this setup what do you think I done got the motherboard and case with psu I also ordered 3 additional fans to keep it cool so I can over clock my proccesor to 4.6ghz

CPU: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B0095VP8D4/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?tag=pcpapi-20

MOTHERBOARD: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B009HP42J4/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?tag=pcpapi-20

RAM: http://m.newegg.com/Product/index?itemNumber=N82E16820231538

6670: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814102958&nm_mc=AFC-C8Junction&cm_mmc=AFC-C8Junction-_-na-_-na-_-na&cm_sp=&AID=10446076&PID=3938566&SID=

HARDRIVE: http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B005CT56R6/ref=redir_mdp_mobile?ref_=cm_cr_pr_product_top

CASE WITH PSU: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811144270


FYI I chose that Case with PSU because it will be good enough for my needs as you can see this isn't any big huge build and should need over 350v

there are a lot of problems with this rig.

the first noticeable one is the motherboard. it is an MSI motherboard that has a very bad power delivery system. not to mention it doesnt even have any heatsinks on the VRMs. i doubt you would be able to overclock on that, and even if you could, i doubt it would last a month before burning out. if you want an mATX motherboard that can do some overclocking check out the ASRock FM2A75 Pro4-M. It has a much better power delivery system, and has heatsinks on the VRMs.


The memory you chose is incredibly over priced. you could get a much cheaper set of ram that performs the same, like the patriot vipers on sale at amazon.

The video card you chose is a low profile one, and that wouldnt work in a standard expansion slot. get something like this instead

The case and power supply you chose were junk. Apevia is a brand that you want to avoid like the plague. it is much better to get a quality case and power supply by spending the extra money now, then your whole rig going up in smokes because of a bad power supply.
Fractal Design Core 1000
Corsair CX430

Also if you want to overclock, you are going to need a decent heatsink. i would suggest looking at the coolermaster hyper 212 plus/evo

He's already got the motherboard.

Here's what I would do if I were you OP: get the CPU, somewhat cheaper RAM, a hard drive, and a higher quality case/PSU (NO APEVIA!!!)

http://us.ncix.com/products/?sku=63238&vpn=P1450SX2B9&manufacture=XFX&promoid=1257

Skip the 6670.

Put it together and try it out. It'll probably do everything you want it to. IF that's insufficient, add the 6670.

I'll look as some other ram and I'll get a different PSU but the motherboard has a 4-1 power stage which is plenty if I can over clock my a4-3005m to 3.0ghz on the stock HP laptop motherboard I can over clock to 4.6 on that and I'm keeping the case because it looks pretty damn good and has everything I need but thinks for the suggestions I look into some cheaper ram and probably a crosair PSU so like I said will this play battlefield 3 on high at 720p?

MSI has some of the worst power phase design when it comes to AMD. i am highly suggesting you dont overclock on that. also, the case has very poor build quality, and i highly suggest staying away from it. your build will play BF3 at 720p fine though.

The XFX I listed is higher quality than the corsairs in that range, fyi.

Hmm I could RMA my board and get a cheao CPU/graphics card bundle I was wondering how good is the Pentium G870 in terms of gaming is it faster than the 5800k is what I'm asking? Also is the Athlon 651K better than the 5800k?

Depends on the game you play. Some games like better per-core performance (SC2, Skyrim). Some games like having four cores more than their individual performance (BF3 single-player, guild wars 2).

The Pentium will be better for games favoring per-core performance. The 5800k will be a little better for games favoring quad-cores.
