500 Euro gaming rig for kids

Recommended Posts

Hello,

Ondroid here and this is my first post so please, bear with me.

 

This rig i'm about to build is actually for my sister's kids.She asked me to build them a machine for 500 euros.Here's what i've come up with so far :

 

CPU : AMD A10-5800K Black Edition                                           - 110,98

I'd prefer to go with a FX cpu and get a dedicated graphics card.  There will be better performance and much better future expansion. 

 

This looks pretty good:

I also saw they have that same monitor for 20 less and free shipping too.

amd 7770 :

I think it ends up about 40 eur more, but a much better system.

Yeah, you are correct.Amazon UK does not ship to Slovakia for free although the shipping fee is not all that bad.I tried the build you've recommended and ended up with this :

 

Processor AMD FX-6350 - 125,78

If it's just for the kids an APU should do you fine. 

 

 http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113331 - $140 keep in mind it's a gpu + cpu so well worth it imo

 

 

To prove my theory http://www.notebookcheck.net/AMD-Radeon-HD-8670D.96575.0.html

As you can see an apu benchmarks pretty well.

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813130662 - $60

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817182200 - $60

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820148540 - $55

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811147166 - $50

 

= $365

 

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16822178381 - $100 sshd ssd + hdd in one

 

= $465

 

Dvd Burner - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16827135204 $ 16 - DVD Drive optional now a days but still useful.

 

All this totals just about $500 thats for the desktop alone mind you not sure what your needs are on monitors.

Thx for all the suggestions but I have a question for you.Why do you prefer MSI FM2-A75MA-E35 to ASROCK FM2A75M Pro4+.Isn't it better to get the one with the highest memory speed ? (at least 2133 MHz since it's the maximum supported by the APU).I thought the higher the memory freq the better the performance of the iGPU.And since the pricing is virtually identical it seems to me like a better option.

 

ASROCK FM2A75M Pro4+ + ADATA 8GB KIT DDR3 2133MHz CL10 XPG Series 1.0 = 136.85
