Light Gaming PC for office - Need suggestions.

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need a PC for light gaming in my office while I wait between clients. My main PC is the one in my sig, and is the one I am using currently in my office. I want to bring my PC back upstairs in my main appartment so I can play hardcore!

I already have lots of parts laying around so all I need is a CPU and mother, maybe a graphics card if I dont take an AMD APU.

I have the case, PSU, RAM, DVD Burner.

I was thinking of getting the AMD A10-5800K and a cheap 50$ mobo. My ram is GSKILL Ripjaws 8Gb DDR3 that I had laying around.
So it would cost ~ 200$ (70$ mobo + 130$ APU)

The rig would play games like Torchlight II, and lots of Indie games. I don't care at all if it doesn't run them on Ultra. The most demanding game i'll probably play is Dark Souls. If it runs on low graphics, which it most probably will, using the DSfix. Other than that, Indie games, SNES, and N64,Emulator. Basically I'll be running Steam on Big Picture mode with a controller hooked up to it.

If there are suggestions I will take them. I hate intel, so I doubt i'll even get an i3 with a discrete card, but I am relatively open minded, so like I said, I am taking suggestions. Thank you.

You could get an AMD A10 5800k and something like an Asrock FM2A75 Pro4-M

Budget Build Combo (AMD socket FM1)
AMD A8 3870k + ASUS F1A55-M - $106.33 after $20 rebate @NCIX Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
  • AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano Quad Core 3.0GHZ 4MB 100W Retail Box
  • with Radeon 6550D HD + Lucid Logix Virtu MVP
  • ASUS F1A55-M LE R2.0 FM1 AMD A55 (Hudson D2) Micro ATX


EOL FM1 socket. but a lot of bang for the buck. if you get a A10-5800K
get a decent motherboard.
