Very small PSU, if you were thinking of adding a better graphics card you would be struggling
Good price for what you get. Heat added.
What's this 7600k amd cpu like in terms of an Intel cpu? Thanks

Around the same performance of a Core2Quad but with better graphics


As for the entire build: uk.pcpartpicker.com/p/d…G7P
Its £220 to build so is not a bad deal, just bear in mind the PSU will limit upgrades

Edited by: "----" 16th Feb 2016
The A8-7600 is not a 'K' series part. Some limited over clocking may be possible to the FSB.

An A8-7650K build of the same would cost about £30 more using better components. But I would probably spend £240 and not get the hard drive and grab a 240gb SSD instead.
Is the iGPU on this good for Kodi?

Yes good for kodi. GPU is capable of some post processing too. Look up using madVR in kodi.

A "gaming PC" that doesn't even list the RPM of the HDD and with integrated graphics and a 250W PSU? Does throwing LEDs into a fancy looking case = Gaming PC these days?
250w PSU lol
Good luck with that.
This CPU under load is over 100w. Doesn't leave much room for a graphics card, fans etc. You've got no hope of overclocking. Shell out for a decent corsair PSU for £80, but swapping out parts isn't going to do your wallet any good when you can instead build a system for yourself.

It's a 65w TDP part. It can also be set to 45w Max. Why the hell you you want or need to spend nearly half your budget on a PSU?!

Not too bad for a basic build, building my own NAS/HTPC/KODI and based around AMD A8 7600, FM2+A88x 8 sata, XFX 430 Psu and Node 804 for about £210-£220 using other bits from old sever

A restaurant I goto regularly did that. They renamed the burger and mentioned the type of cheese they use (which they always did) and increased the price by £1. I'm not a regular there anymore.

So just goes to prove my point. At artificial 100% load on both CPU and GPU the system as a whole uses 107w at the wall. The PSU at that load is a 89% efficient. So system usage is about 95w. If you work down from an Intel CPU that the system uses about 25w. So now we are down to 70w. The extra 5w is probably down to the higher clocked memory over the Intel system.

I'd agree with you but under the description it states not just gaming but delivering "ultimate gaming and entertainment experience".
This PC will work for gaming if a powerful PSU and a gaming gpu is fitted in. That will be another £100+

I never claimed it was better as it clearly is not. My point is you can buy games very cheap which keeps the ongoing cost down.

You do realise the CPU IS the AMD A8 7600? Its clearly not intel

No using the chart you linked to and the usage of the Intel CPU this leads to the other componants in the system use approx 25w!

So 65w APU + System usage 25w + faster memory 5w gives you 95w with the PSU inefficiencies (89%) that gets you to the headline of 107w.

From a watt use per FPS it is very good.

You're not very bright. I have 5 custom rigs in my house, you sound like a fool continually arguing with everyone because you either have nothing better to do with your time, or you genuinely believe what you are saying. In both situations you shouldn't be posting inaccurate and incorrect responses, particularly when other people do know better.

What you are quoting is not the power draw for the CPU but the WHOLE PC, motherboard, ram, psu, hard drive, keyboard, mouse etc.

Well welcome to the forum you are entitled to your opinion as am I. All I was doing was giving you the facts (not opinion) from the link you provided and that makes me "Not very bright"! OK.

Good for you having 5 custom rigs. Sadly I don't have that many. I do however have a A8-7600 and have had it since launch.

So while I may "Not be very bright" in your opinion you linked to a website disparages your entire point. So you were either trolling yourself or 'Not even as bright as me!'

Precisely. Therefore a bog standard system is going to pull in 107w. That leaves 147w for a GPU over the basic integrated on the chipset. On a very low end GPU you're pushing past 70w with ease.


Who's brand is this PSU? At this pricepoint I doubt it will even give 150w.

Want to put a bigger hard drive? 1tb isn't going to last very long so you either upgrade to a bigger drive and lose your data on the first, or you put a second drive and add an additional 7-10w with two drives running at the same time.
This machine will of course require at least one case fan so expect there to be a few w draw there too.

How about upgrading the ram with another stick?

Where is all this draw going to come from? Want to run a couple of USB cables to charge your phone/tablet?

If you're just planning on buying this to make no modifications and use as-is, good luck, but it's not going to stand the test of time or give you much room to upgrade in future.

Don't buy low end junk.

The 65w rating of the APU *is not* power consumption. The figure is for TDP (Thermal Design Power) and represents the amount of heat produced by the APU that needs to be dissipated. You use this number to pick an appropriate Cooler not Power Supply.

Yes that is very true. But in general people quote the TDP (including benchmarking sites). In this instance AMD sets the power draw at 65w so the above is still true. On the A8-7650K you could well go over the TDP point by overclocking it.
But a well made point.
