Hmm can't agree on the AMD Roaster - sorry had too many issues and problems with them in the past NVidia hasn't left me dangling yet. Plus both my best laptops have integrated NVidia chips which are just superb.

But that is just my two cents worth

Heh..There's trouble to expect when using AMD Processor with NVIDIA GPU. Intel/AMD or Intel/NVIDIA is the way to go. SLI on AMD's got a noticeable improvement while the Green Team only got slight.

I would go with the APU setup Roaster mentioned before... I don't know how in fond you are about heating issues if you don't have a properly ventilated CPU case. APU's give reasonable performance while keeping your system at least bearable regarding temperatures. ExGPUs are great choices, but you need to take in mind temps and cooling solutions, otherwise, you will experience problems, lag or BSOD's while gaming...

Why not changing only your APU? Your MoBo is fully compatible with FM2+ sockets, and that A10-7850K APU uses that socket. If you change the APU with the one suggested by Roaster, you get a better GPU and a faster CPU in one shot. Even better, if you change your current APU, you can sell it later, A6 APU's are good for many people that don't do too intensitive stuff.

It's a win-win situation, and you don't risk system stability, at least not until you start learning about cooling solutions and stuff to keep your system cool for gaming.

P.S. I know I sound paranoid about system cooling and temperatures, but believe me, I've seen GPU's die because of unbearable temperatures...

Here the specs:
APU A10-7850K Quad-Core Can Run PC Game System Requirements

I would say those games would run without problems. A10 is the latest generation, and taking in mind the number, seems it's the perfect balance between performance and price.

Hi All, So I recently built a computer for a friend using an Asus P8Z77-V LK motherboard and an Intel i5-3350 CPU. The plan was to use the integrated graphics rather than a dedicated card so I plugged the monitor into the motherboard via a VGA cable. I booted it up for the first time and the...
