IG with fast ram 2133hz+ and large L3 caches has been researched to play games at consistant 30FPS, but there's still a lot of issues.

Yeah, still debating that one.


Just make sure to play your games at the lowest settings possible, maybe the max resoultion you could do is 1024 768.

APUs are efficient, but the quality of the products will drop to fall in line with the their system of selling.

I want to build a new computer for my family, who would only really use it for your average browsing and microsoft office tasks, with some light gaming tossed in there too. How does it hold up? Any suggestions? I already have a monitor.


an 8gb might aswell buy 16gb and a quadro 6000 and teach them how to animate and use marquee lol

jokes aside 4gb is enough if only light gaming

Only thing I'd change is the ram, two sticks of 1600-1866 will give a lot better performance if anyone is planning on gaming on it at all. If not don't worry about it, but the 1866 vengeance LP 2x4gb sticks were on sale for $55 not too long ago


This. APU's get a significant boost with fast RAM so don't skimp. Other than that great job with the rest of the parts.

You should definitely get DDR3 1866 with this CPU, not DDR3 1333.

If you have a Microcenter near you, they have a combo.bundle with the same motherboard, but with the 6800k. 6800k is faster, but also runs hotter as well though.

Microcenter
AMD A10-6800K + MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 = $150 + tax

Amazon
AMD A10-5800K + MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 = $166 + tax
