Alright an A10-5800/6800 is an FX 4300 and HD 6670. APU is the top of the line, so know if it will do ya good.
If you are contemplating gaming with a discrete card an ATHLON CPU (no video) and an HD 7770 or GTX650 might be better.
That is perhaps large, mITX would be more difficult
Somewhere between the $400 and the $650, and usually you can do better Toms Marathon pricing.
I'm a bit sceptical on the 750K's performance. It seems to be on par with the 5800K and if so, I think I'd rather get a 6800K and a 6670 to crossfire with..
I'll take a look on those articles more thoroughly but I'm also sceptical whether getting an i3 or Pentium would be of much benefit as well...
From what I've gathered, the 5800K/6800K is about on par with i3 3xxx series? The benefit of the A10 would be they're overclockable and strong iGPUs.
If so, am I correct in taking the assumption that I'd gain better performance overclocking the A10 and doing a hybrid crossfire with a 6670? (instead of a stock i3 + 650)
well, here is a build that is aimed at your needs
mini itx case: http://www.nanokompu...roducts_id=5153processor: http://www.nanokompu...roducts_id=5301mini itx motherboard: http://www.nanokompu...roducts_id=5577
asuming you already have a dvd drive lying around i didnt add it.
price is roughly $555.40 excl shipping
if you have components you can currently use (the hdd comes into mind, then i would excange the hdd with an ssd), then i can re-do the build with those spare parts in mind
also keep in mind a small formfactor comes with a premium, if you go for a regular desktop size it could save you well over $50
Well, like I said in my OP, don't bother with HDD, Monitors, Keyboard, etc. I have a few HDD lying around here so I'd definitely prefer getting an SSD instead. As for the case, I don't think I'd bother getting a case atm. My room is cramped and I'll be setting the system up on my open-shelf (kinda like an open test bench once completed)
Also, yeah it'd be nice to have a compact form factor. But it won't be a priority. Just that it'd be nice if I can get a good system specification that performs well and it just so happens that it's compact as well
You could go with the hybrid crossfire on the APU using a 6670 and reduce the cost some more. Will get you fairly solid performance.
I am considering doing using a 6670. Though after doing some digging, I found these:
As far as I'm aware, Trinity/Richland are VLIW4 based instead of GCN. How they're able to crossfire with a 7750, I have no idea. Does anyone have any idea how much of a boost I can get with a 8670D+7750 instead of say a 7660D+6770? Also, is it strictly 7750 only or can I crossfire it with a 7770 as well?
