    dont waste your money on an a10 and a new motherboard

    get the athlon x4 760k that is the best cpu your current motherboard supports and is just as good as that a10 for much less money

    also buy a better gpu like a gtx 1050 ti with the money you save


    MUCH better gaming setup

  2. thank you but i have to replace my motherboard too cuz the other ram slot is not working, thats why im thinking to buy the bundled AMD a10 with that MSI Mobo.

    do you have a website you like to shop from? what is your budget?


    I am sure people can help you get the best bang for your buck, that kind of apu setup is utterly obsolete nowadays

    so about ~9974 pesos? correct?

    motherboard:

    cpu:

    https://www.lazada.com.ph/intel-core-i3-4170-4th-generation-3m-cache-370-ghz-core-processor-3178679.html?spm=a2o4l.category-020000000000.0.0.NWO70Q&ff=1&sc=EQ==


    much better performance for your money
    this would allow you to reuse your ram and gpu

    and give you an upgrade path


    just make sure to talk to the guys and explain to give you a mobo with an up to date bios
