Now here's an answer from someone with a little respect.

To answer your question, no, it would not be a good 1080p machine. APU's are really meant for 720p. (unless you're running some super old games. If you wanna stick to that series, I would go for at least an A8 quad core, and just use the on board graphics (not sure if the 7770 would be better than an R7 APU) Also that cooler isnt needed, as it comes with one :)

That'd be a lot better, probably still not 1080p in newer titles however. Just that line in general is really for 720p

I'll literly only have 35 dollars for CPU Mobo ram and shipping... Talk about budget. What would you recommend?

As the others said, you'd be better off saving for that Pentium G4560. It's the best budget CPU as of right now. If you only have 35$ for all of those however, I would look to eBay and find something used. Core 2 Quads might be an OK start for that area (unless you happen to find an i3, or a Pentium G series around that range)

Well right now i have an e7500 its 2.8ghz dual core my e4500 was 2.3 ghz dual core and it preformed decent for what i do i really just need a mobo

Sorry, but that CPU is really bad. I have an A8-5500, which is a better CPU than what you have, and I can tell you, I can't do 1080p on CPU bound games.

overall, No. it's not. Not for its price. Let me suggest a parts list that will be A LOT better.

  • This CPU completely beats the A6 in every way possible. I couldn't find the 7400k, but the 6400k won't be too far behind the 7400k. here's a synthetic benchmark comparing the G4560 and the 7400k.
  • You said you had this cooler, and that's just fine. The Pentium doesn't need it, but it's better than it's stock cooler. :)
  • Asrock motherboard. b250. Nothing else special. Only has two DIMM slots
  • Single stick of 8gb RAM
  • 1tb HDD for mass storage
  • This GPU is old, and 1gb of VRAM will not get you far at all. I know from experience. It's behind the 750 TI in performance. The 7770 can hold its own, but will struggle in the 1080p department. I recommend an upgrade. Here are the synthetic benchmarks between the 7770 and the 750 TI. Now, let's compare it to the 1050.
  • Better case. It's a great budget case that looks decent :)
  • I know you have the 500 watt, but don't bother with it. It's not a good unit. Get the CX450M as it's VASTLY superior.

So, I'll reiterate. The build you proposed isn't a good gaming one. Sorry to say, but you can make use of the SSD, Cooler, and GPU :)

The thing is I only have 35 for CPU Mobo and ram. Unless I can get an lga 775 Mobo I have an e7600 dual core

Is there any way you can save up?

Because I don't see how you can pick up a mobo, ram, and cpu for 35$.

My Mobo died and I have 2gb of ram I have an e7500 and I really just need ram and mobo

Yeah, you're not going to find a stick of RAM and a motherboard for 35$.

Even with an LGA 775 motherboard.
