I can find you one, but it will probably not be good for gaming.

Building your on PC is easy, and if you are new a 1 hour 30 minute video will give you the knowledge.

It does not play Crysis 3 and I wouldn't try, but it can run most games. I guarante Battlefield 3 at low settings 1080p 30 fps at least.



Get that 6670 out of there and put in a 7770 ghz for 20 more bucks.

With taxes it will almost come close to 600 dollars.

Beside the 8GB Ram and the mouse/keyboard, the computer you can build is better.

You could do an AMD APU build with an A10-6800k and then crossfire it in the future for better performance with a card that runs you $100-200.

Going for just the basic Mobo, 8GB RAM, SSD (or even HDD for cheap), PSU, case, optical drive, and Win 8...you can easily get that under $500 without the GPU for now.

That's not Crossfire and a FX-6300 for around the same price would demolish the APU.

Yes it is Crossfire. Don't try to correct someone if you don't know what you're talking about. Google is your friend.

Also, how would the 6300 demolish the APU? We're talking budget here, it would not demolish that APU unless you got a graphics card with it....thus raising the budget, at which point you might as well say to get an i5.

With that said, the performance boost of the A10-6800k + a card like the 7750 appears to only be like 15-25% over the normal GPU performance (from what other forums say), so its probably not even worth it. Though there are also youtube videos with similar setups that see a good boost, while others see little and microstutter, so who knows.

No. It's not crossfire. Don't be a d*****. FX-6300 is $120, i5 is $200. You are correct. It's not worth it to go the APU route.
