I am planning to build a desktop (after 3 years I want to leave notebook world - using Intel i3-350M together with NVidia GT325M)
This notebook setup was so far good for me as for not really intensive gamer, but I do play games, but not keeping a step with most of you.
So far I used to play FarCry 1, FEAR 1, Crysis 1, some racing stuff like Trackmania etc., not really interested in newer titles.

I want to ask you about this (future) setup (just basic description):

AMD Kaveri A10-7850k
GigaByte GA-F2A88XM-D3H
2x Corsair Vengeance Low Profile Blue 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3 2133 (is CAS11 so bad, comparing to words of some members here ?)
Some SSD, 550W PSU

Do you think is worth to put some amount of money, when we know DDR4 is going to be question of 2015, together with Carrizo APU ?

I am still keeping to be casual gamer, I will have nice opportunity to try Far Cry 3 in February, so if FC3 is going to be playable on reasonable details (planning to get 1920x1200 monitor),
I think it should be nice investment, but I will appreciate to hear some opinions about my planned build.


BobiBolivia

DDR4 is going to be expensive when it hits the market in 2015, so it is out of the question for regular customers. For that resolution you maybe able to play FC3 at low or you should get a GPU which will support dual graphics with your APU to play at medium or high settings.

Budget mobo's are different on FM2+ then they are on LGA1150. You trade off features.

You could cheap out on a mid range mother board for 60-70 bucks and still pull a respectable overclock on FM2.

Now i'm not saying HD 4600 is all that. It is what it is but its not that bad

Hi,

Another review: it shows the advantages of faster memory.

http://uk.hardware.info/reviews/5156/amd-a10-7850k-kaveri-review-amds-new-apu

And it seems that the cpu is available for £125.99

If you don't overclock you can cheap out, they do not run all that hot. At least that was the case with llano and trinity, haven't got hands on experience with kaveri though.

look at the cinebench R11.5
FX 4300 4,5Ghz score abou 3.73 while AMD APU score at stock 3,58cb .Overclocked to 4.5Ghz it score 4.26 cb - 14% boost clock per clock.

I just did some benchmark with my FX 6300 using 2M/4C 3.4Ghz 1.01V in BF4 MP... and if athlon x4 (steamroller) will get 14% over FX 4300 that would be nice...

You've decided you want to build a new rig over buying a PS4 but you're going to cheap out and settle for Kaveri and a subpar gaming experience?

Agreed! My i3 4340 @ 3.6 and iGPU overclocked to 1600mhz is actually pretty strong considering what it is.

Just found a Portuguese review (my language) . They said that the cpu runs surprisingly cold.
