Help with a PC

  1. Can someone tell me if this is any good:


    > AMD A10-5800K APU
    > ASUS® F2A55-M LE
    > 8GB SAMSUNG 1600MHz
    > AMD Radeon HD 7000
    >
    1TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s
    That is for £449
  2. That seems pretty good. As long as everything functions with your motherboard.
  3. I think it's right, for playing games like Minecraft and stuff it should be good.

  4. Do you think it could run COD 4 Skyrim, Farcry?
  5. Probably. Maybe not on max settings, but it should be able to run those.
  6. Is this any better?


    > AMD BULLDOZER FX-6200
    > ASUS M5A97 R2.0
    > 8GB SAMSUNG 1600MHz
    > RADEON™ HD7770
    > 1TB 3.5" SATA-III 6GB/s
  7. Much much better, the main problem with the first one was the graphics card. This should run nearly anything

  8. Ok this is £649 so £200 more, can yo please help me trim it down a bit, I don't need it to run ANYTHING just be able to play and record fairly well
    EDIT: What one is the RAM?
  9. The 8GB thing is the ram, you should be clear at 6 or even 4. If you really want to trim it down more, look for a lower graphics card.
  10. Ok, thanks I looked at these.
    RADEON™ HD7750
    Can't get less than 8 unless i go to 4, want more than 4 to make rendering faster, my mate has 4 and it takes a few hours but on the one with 6 then it takes about half the time
  11. Sorry for long post but this is it.

  13. I'd take the original setup but add the new graphics card. If the CPU underperforms than you can just overclock it a bit.
  14. Overclock?
  15. Unless you have a forgiving bios, you can't overclock a trinity APU. Made me sad to learn that.
    Also, I have an ATI Radeon 7640G and I can run skyrim on max settings.. the main problem comes from skyrim being a 32 bit program and capping at 4G of ram before crashing violently.

    Seeing as the 7700 is a desktop GPU, I'd assume it's better than mine.
  16. If you can afford it, this should be great
  17. Cut out that bluray drive unless you need it, and get a 7770. Unless you are going to use this PC to watch bluray movies, i personally find a bluray player useless.

  18. So the above is OK without blueray? Anything else i can cut off?
  19. it will run any game you throw at it alright. I suggest putting in a little more ram. blu-ray will not help or hurt. you can use it as a reg disc dirve to burn disc's and what not. I don't understand the point of the memory card reader, but thats just me, I've got an adapter for mine that a rarely use.

    overall it sounds like a decent computer.
  20. What is the difference between the 1GB AMD RADEON™ HD7750 - DVI,HDMI,VGA - DX® 11
    And the HD6670
