|I'm building a budget gaming rig for my father, and managed to get it down to $250 CAD by combining an AMD A8 7650K APU with 8GB G.SKILL Ripjaws X DDR3 RAM and an MSI A68HM-E33 motherboard. The rest of the PC will be built from some old parts I have laying around. |
I have absolutely no experience with APUs, but I have seen a few videos on YouTube showing gameplay of GTA V on this APU at about 30FPS.
Before I go about ordering the parts, would anybody happen to know what settings/overclocking would be needed to have this APU play GTA V decently? It's the only game he'll be playing on it, so I would like to make sure it runs somewhat smoothly. Graphics quality isn't really a concern considering he's been playing the PS3 version for the past few years.
The system will be connected to a 1080p LG HDTV through HDMI.
