AMD A6-5400K Trinity Dual-Core 3.6 GHz Socket FM2 65W AD540KOKHJBOX Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7540D
  • neweggOwned For: 1 month to 1 year

Pros: Bought this for my girlfriend, she needed quick entry level desktop. with SSD this thing works as well as my fx 8320/7870 for booting, surfing web and word processing.

I overclocked it to 4.2-4.3 for cpu and 1.05 for gpu and it plays BF3 on low at 720p, FPS don't drop below 22, usually around 35-40. I also, got some 2x4gb 1600 RAM with CAS 9, and gave the GPU 2GB.

Cons: Not a con, but since you are cheaping out on GPU, put some good ram on it, it will make huge difference for gaming. I would recommend 1866.

Other Thoughts: bought it on (another site) because i had a credit there, but since newegg community reviews is my go to source for knowledge I figure i would return a favor.

5 out of 5 eggs Solid MB, for money/performance rig 12/24/2012

This review is from: MSI 970A-G46 AM3+/AM3 AMD 970 + SB950 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX AMD Motherboard with UEFI BIOS

Pros: Running it with FX 8320/HD7870 + 1333 RAM CL9

Everything runs on max 30+ FPS (avg 45) but Planetside 2. PS2 will do 60 at spawn but will drop below 24 sometime in 100+ battle. I think it could be my RAM.

Overclocks proper with stock cooler. get 4.2 stable on 1.425V, stays in 40's gaming BF3/PS2. Got to invest in evo 212 tho, keep it even cooler for longer life.

I was iffy about buying 970 chipset, since I wanted better quality than the mainstream, but this thing hasn't limited me in anything. Stable, overclocks, easy to use, easy to update, has everything a single GPU gamer would need (maybe even dual GPU, but I wouldn't know)

Cons: all kosher, i expect 6 years of life out of it tho so i could be back

Other Thoughts: Don't cheap out on ram if you going to play PS2, get 1600+ with CL9-

  • neweggOwned For: 1 week to 1 month

Pros: It's a PSU. Its only job is to stay alive longer than your rig. This is one feels solid. Powers my fx 8320 and hd 7870 with no problems.

Cons: none
