Media slash gaming PC configuration advice.

Hiya.

These are components that have been laying on some shelves collecting dust and whatnot and I'm thinking that I could get this all sold in a so called Multimedia PC Pack.

Though what I would appreciate if hardware savvy people would tell me if I can go beyond the setup I already have? Or would I risk going on the minus side by buying more hardware?

PC Hardware:

Gigabyte F2A85X-UP4 - Motherboard
AMD A4-5300 + NZXT cooler - CPU
Cooler Master Elite 310 Mid Tower Black - Case
12GB - Ram
3 HDD + 1 SSD
Palit Radeon HD 4870 Sonic - Graphics Card(Update?)

Outside the box:

LG Flatron M2780D
Sony SRS-D8
Logitech G110
Buy a gaming mouse?

Sometimes I wonder that because I'm from Finland I get less responses because people have gotten a bad experience or seen the bad Finnish drunk man standing at the street corner screaming his lungs out saying bad things and think that well if he is like that the chances of BTA being the same aren't that slim.

Though maybe there is another reason, I really do hope that but one cannot not think about it.

The AMD A4 CPU you chose has pretty bad reviews. You may want to look for alternatives - e.g. Intel i5.

There's only a few people that use amd stuff so it's a little isolated in what to recommend or suggest :/

Best thing to do is post a budget and a link where you intend on buying the stuff so we can make real suggestions.

No sense in posting Newegg or any other u.s.a. site where you can't get it anyway

Unfortunately Finns do have this bad alcoholic issue.

Ask Kari, if you don't trust me.

I don't think that is the case but honestly if you want media slash gaming the A4 CPU you picked is a real dog you are better off going with AMD zen atleast you will be able to play a decent title
