Very Budget Build - AMD

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 

i have just build a computer for a friend recently (£513 ($783ish)), i will add a Thread about that for any comments thumb.gif and now my other friend would like a PC which can run Basic Games & Facebook games doesn't seem like a hard task and its not wink.gif my friend may want to venture out of facebook and play some other games but i cannot see it being too heavy on the requirements.

with that in mind the price of this build has to be around the £250 mark (<$400) i already have an OS Licence + a space optical drive + HDD, making things cheaper

ill price it in $ from now

so what i was thinking, going for a CPU-less rig with an AMD APU

Small PSU 500Wish was thinking CX430 ($60) or EVGA 430 ($50)
8GB Corsair Vengeance RAM (1600Mhz) ($91)
Gigabyte GA-F2A78M-DS2 ($45)
AMD A8 7600 ($110)
Zalman T3 ($32)

then if she does need to go any further i can always add Dual Graphics with R7 250 ($90ish)

any thoughts on this? perhaps i can get more performance for the same price?

how are the AMD APUs for gaming?

For basic games, you can build a very cheap rig that they'd love.
Remove the cooler and SSD if you like as they're more quality of life items than anything else.
