Successor to the Llano. APU is an Accelerated Processor Unit, basically combines a CPU and a GPU into one chip. Mainly designed for lower profile, lower power stuff such as netbooks and mainstream desktops. For gamers though, your better of with a dedicated CPU and a high end gaming graphics card.

Trinity has an improved CPU and uses the Radeon 7xxx series graphics instead of the 6xxx series graphics that Llano uses. I do see AMD doing well on that since I'm finding more and more laptops with their APUs in and it is a cost effective way to get good performance, certainly better than Intel Atom and the integrated graphics on their i3s.

deeplove, two options for this build...one 30 bucks over budget, but much more powerful, or one within budget, but not as good a performer...

for $628.94:

Case $59.99

Mobo $49.99

Video Card $269.99

OS $99.99

CPU & RAM Combo $148.98

ive decided to lower the CPU performance for much more GPU performance. the drop in CPU performance will be much lower than the gain in GPU performance, so gaming will be improved. however, this would JUST fit the PSU you have. do you have the 12v rail amp ratings?

if its too much to pay, grab a GTX 560 or 6870

PSU that I'm selling him.

That 570 is a newer card right? I'm not familiar with Nvidia. If so, that's one wicked system you put up. I'll send him the info right now. Great. I'm sure he'll dig what you came up with.

that PSU should work.

and i wouldnt call the 570 new, but its not old. the 6xx series are the latest ones available.

Thanks Hiigaran. He's placing the orders today. He's darn excited too. He's also ordering WoW and Diablo 3 with the purchase. Oh hell...another PC gamer on board. LOL!

GTX 570s are old, they were released in 2010. And are not worth recommending anymore IMO, this is because 7850s are virtually the same in performance, if not better with the factory OCed models, but uses much less power, are less hot and less noisy.

Gigabyte GV-R785OC-2GD $260 ($7 shipping)

I believe the 570. How much more are the 6xx to the 570? Plus, I don't know how much the 4100 will bottleneck any of the cards, but which one would be better then for that CPU? 7850, 570 or 6xx for the price? I think he didn't mind that $269 for the 570. I'd have to call him.

edit....

Forget the 6xx series. I saw the price and it won't slide with him. Totally out the budget.

i completely forgot about the 7xxx series! if it can be changed, go for duneworlds suggestion. if its too late, its not that big a deal.

I managed to get a hold of him. i told him the 7xxx series is newer. So he's going with that now. He's ordering later on today. He's at work. But he said what ever is newer and good then he'll go for that as long as it's on budget.

Question, why is the 7750 and 7770 so cheap? Is it not capable of playing video games at high resolutions?

It is but it is the highest card in the mainstream desktop segmant. If you want a gaming card, the top two are either the 78xx or the 79xx. The 7800s are the lower end of the gaming pile, whilst the 7900s are the top end of them.

What a bizarre promotion.

Buy a graphics card, win a either a graphics card or some sweets.

I'd be interested if F@H wasn't being a twat for me. For some reason though my client doesn't seem to be folding, despite being running.

I'm gonna see if I can reset the work queue.

EDIT: My GPU is folding, but my CPU doesn't seem to be.

EDIT: NVM it seems to be folding properly again.
