A10 5800k for a budget PC?

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Just looking for some thoughts about this CPU. And how good is the 7660 GPU that comes with it? What games could you realistically play with it? I was thinking about this for a sub-$500 build.

I also heard it was possible to crossfire the GPU on the A10 5800k with a Radeon 7750 or similar GPU? How exactly would that work?

Assuming you can crossfire, would something like this be good for sub-$500?

You need faster RAM, 1866 or 2133 is recommended for IGPU's

You could play pretty much BF3 with settings knocked down a lil'. I'm pretty sure you could play it pretty well as i was doing with a HD4830
7750 & 7660D would be a "Dual Graphics" CF but not a normal CF. Frankly, don't bother.
For the RAM, do not get anything less than 1866.

I think this is a better drive than the Seagate

Case, at least choose a better one even at the same price

Er, k. The PSU is garbage

Lastly, do you even need a DVD drive? Don't have one?

My old PC had DDR3 1600mhz, and it pushed crossfire 6970s. I don't see why I'd need faster ram for a budget rig when I didn't even need it for an actual gaming rig.

Instead of Hybrid Crossfire with the 7750, step back to an A8-5600K to save $20 and get a better video card.

the A8 is still an unlocked quad core, so it will easily OC to A10's speed just by bumping the multiplier.

Use money saved for like a 1gb 7850 or a 1gb 650TI Boost

1600 C8 is better then the common 1866 Cl10... yes fast ram for APU is a must.. as most oems put crappy 1333 or worse.

CPUwise that APU with a snappy ssd will be pretty fast.

I would not recommend that motherboard... remember the motherboard is the heart of the system, it can cause a lot of issues, driver headaches, etc. Quality is important. A75 or 85 chipsets are a better bet.

That makes sense. But if I'm not gonna use the graphics part of the APU, then I don't see the point in going with an AMD APU over something like an Intel Core I3, which beats it for gaming anyway for close to the same price.

The faster ram helps out builds with APU's. 1600mhz is fast ram for it, you dont NEED faster ram but it will be helpful for you if you can fit it in the budget. 1866mhz seems to be one of the main favorites around here for APU builds. thumb.gif

Here is an article that will show you what faster ram can do:

The reason you need 1866 or higher ram is because you are going integrated graphics. IGPs use system ram for their memory. You will see a major increase in performance compaired to 1600.

Ah ok, that explains why my old rig didn't need it.
