Alright... something has crossed my mind, and i'm extremely torn.
I'm thinking about building a small form-factor Micro ATX system that will tide me back for a while... while i wait until i can buy the serious system i've always wanted.
Not only for that reason, but i have an HD 4850 with an aftermarket cooler that i bought about a month/two months before i ran into problems and had to take it out. And i have an Ultra LSP 650W PSU. I'd really like to salvage these two parts, and build a system.
Maximum $350 mark. I'd post it in the help me buy/help me build, but i think it's unnecessary at this point. Seeing as i'm unsure if i'll even go through with it.
I'm going about this situation in many ways..
I've found this great build for $350http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lv60r_cS ... ature=plcp
(minus the PSU)
With that build in mind, one question arises; If i'm using that A10 APU with its integrated graphics core... will i be able to use my 4850, so they work alongside each other? Or will it be problematic, seeing as the A10 APUs Graphics utilize DX11? The 4850 is aging... But still a card with excellent performance.
Plus, if they CAN work together, i'd be seeing some very, very nice performance...
My 650W PSU and 4850 with a Zalman VF770 cooler (which may or may not work... i'm praying it does!) are making me want to build this system.
Well...? How should i go about approaching this train-wreck of an idea?
