Samsung 32 Inch HDTV

TV
  • Resolution – 1366 x 768p
  • 60Hz Refresh Rate
  • 32 Inch Size
  • HDMI + USB + VGA Ports

I already have this TV as an extra at home so i used this as in need of monitor .

Experience after 10 months –

I bought this because of low budget, but it is sufficient for me because i keep resolution on 1366x768p because of TV, for which i got immersive performance from this APU while gaming .

CPU performance for this budget is astonishing. I do video editing, exporting, gaming, blogging every kind of load is handled with ease by this rig .

No such complain in between the price bracket in which i bought this PC .

Sometime’s i feel like i should increase my budget a little and go for a Ryzen CPU rather than an APU, because in increase of budget i can get a 1050ti . 1050ti is way more powerful than this integrated GPU . Settled with APU now, you may upgrade GPU later but that is of no use if you have APU, because when you add GPU your integrated graphics have no more use. So, get a CPU more powerful than this for EX. Ryzen 5 3500 i should have definitely buy this and get a 1050ti paired with it for start but at that time 3500 wasn’t launched yet .

If you are happy with APU’s performance then its fine you may carry on .
