So i have a bit of a older build that was built with a APU. Never meant to use it for a gaming PC and i rarely ever play any video games. But once in a long while (6-7 years) i find something interesting. Well i screwed up and decided i would like to play GTA 5. Seems all im short of playing this game is a graphic card. More then likely once bored of this game i will give up games for another large number of years lol
So heres what im working with. MSI FM2-A85XA-G65, AMD A10-5800k Trinity 3.8ghz APU, 4 sticks of 4GB Adata XPG ram for a total of 16GB. I ended up with so much ram because of a warranty issue. Lastly a Corsair CX430 for power.
Id like to stick around $100 or less if i can?? clearly cheaper the better but id like the card to atlest hang with the rest of the system so maybe give several ideas with some details what performance wise?
I think way back when i built this thing i read somewhere adding a card to this APU the APU would still help graphics? not sure if thats true.
Im not sure if that power supply will be big enough? maybe just enough to get the game running good? I can play the game with just whats in the APU now but you can easily tell it is lagging and the quality is not very good. Not as bad as my old PS2 but bad enough lol
With that said please if you can help in any way i would be mighty thankful!
