A 260$ combo lets you game pretty much very good for low budget gaming rig.

What do you think, is it worth it? or you've got some better combo?

660 is much better value than the 750 Ti.

Well it's a 50$ more...

Really? They're the same price here.

Great video and it will be interesting to see how stuff progresses in the future.

Here's an excellent and detailed review of the GTX 750 Ti

750 Ti is a good value (can't wait to see what a low-powered 20nm equivalent can offer in the next 8-10 months).

Luckily I have a microcenter near me so if I need a back-up PC I can just grab an FX 6300 with motherboard for $110 and skip the APU's

You are lucky to live near one. >_> I could have grabbed an i7 4770k and a mobo for about $50 more than what I spent to get my 4670k.
Had to pay the $240. Had things gone a bit quicker, I could have grabbed one for $189.

Eh, that guy is pure canser. He was recommending some amd gpu + amd onboard gpu for crossfire in another video, completely ignoring how bad that microstutters(probably because he's blind).

That seems like an ok build though for the price, http://www.cpu-world.com/Compare/348/AMD_Athlon_X4_760K_vs_Intel_Core_2_Quad_Q6600.html

A q6600 is really slow for today, but that 760k is $90. Won't run any CPU intensive games well at all though... (TERA, ARMA, BF4) You'd probably be looking at less than 15 fps a lot in the former.

It performs as good as i3 3220 but got actual 4 cores instead of the i3 - 2 cores which got hyperthreading

Bad idea , once the cpu is set up, it makes it harder to upgrade later on, which you don't have with a videocard.That cpu will bottleneck a lot of games.The problem is at that price range, 50$ makes a lot of difference, the performance per dollar is extremely high when going that low budget. Not to mention that onboard gpu won't do much for your graphics, drivers will become a pain fast.

A gtx 750 ti is also nvidia, which is the most expensive but doesn't provide any extra quality besides driver support when it comes to dual setups, but the onboard gpu is from amd. Seems to be it's asking for problems. A cheaper videocard will also mean a cheaper psu. When upgrading you can upgrade the psu. The cheapest psu's are much cheaper than the cheapest motherboards and when it comes to performance that 760k cpu will bottleneck fast.

So yeah bad idea, better find a good cpu setup like a fx 8320 (159 $) and buy a second hand videocard like a hd 7850 (which performs the same as the 750ti). Or get a 7750, cheap out on the psu and get ivy bridge intel.

Or dish out 50$ more, or buy a completely second hand system. Way more better options than this BS, that cpu will be slaughtered with upcoming console ports.

750ti despite been a good card is a really bad value unless your pc cant handle something better ( in fact most gpu's this last couple of months are overpriced )

instead of a 750ti i'd rather get a gtx660 or an r9 270 which can be found for 155euros ( amazon de and amazon uk prices ) and are much faster than 750 ti which costs only 20 euros less
