Description

This is my first build, Thanks to this site and everyones build that help me get ba**s to go get it done.

This is a HTPC for light gaming and High Def Movies, Cable management was a pain in the rear, is either the case or my inexperience , I did try my best. Hope everyone like it. the reason I choose the cpu is because of the crossfire cap. with the 6670 gpu.. watching youtube videos did help me choose it for some good gaming, I would be making my second build coming next week, please comment, I'm really open to advise thanks

If you will be putting this in your living room, I would recommend the Nerdytec CouchMaster, its probably the most elegant and convenient solution for an HTPC setup I have ever seen.

Whenever you can, definitely get another HDD, since movies take up some space. Nice build, I like it!

I see someone remembered to get faster RAM to go with that A10. Nice job, it looks stunning.

Does this have good performance in games? I've heard that if you buy a 6670 and APU, you would be better off with an i3 and good discrete GPU for bang/buck. It would be a little more expensive, but much better performance. Does this match up with your experience?

It does give a performance like a Radeon 7850, but the main reason I got it was because of price, at first I dint want to even crossfire , but my friend got on my head and I change my mind. Overall the performance is Great for Price/Performance.

Hmmmmm.......I would confirm that statement with some gaming tests. But then again, it shouldn't matter within the context of this build. Though, I still would've taken the 4 cores over the 4 threads for that price point.
