Hey, I'm wondering if it would be a good idea, and possible, to upgrade from my current AMD A10-5700 APU to the AMD A10-5800K APU. I'm also most likely going to upgrade my RAM, video card, and PSU. The main thing I want is a) to know if the A10-5800K would bottleneck an ATI Radeon HD 7850, b) if it is possible since both processors share the same socket (FM2), and c) if the AM A10-5800K is a good budget CPU.
The main thing I want is the ability to overclock the Processor when needed. There isn't much of a difference between the two processors from comparisons that I've seen, except two key points: 1) the 5700 being more energy efficient and 2) the ability to overclock the 5800K.
Also, I bought my computer premade. It's a Gateway, and I'm never sure if it's good to upgrade a premade, store bought computer. My other Gateway has been acting very slow on start-up since I upgraded it's video card and PSU from an ATI Radeon 4650 HD/400W PSU to an nVidia GTX 550Ti/650W PSU.
So please, thoughts, suggestions, etc. I'm open to ideas. Just looking for some input.
AMD A10-5700 APU 3.4 Ghz CPU
AMD Radeon HD 7660D & 7670 (isolating 7670)
8 GB DDR3 Kingston PC3-10700 (667MHz)
