best apu u can get if ur poor

miren el procesador esta bien, con el y una tarjeta de video 1030 se pude jugar raimbow six hasta entre 80 y 100 fps y la verdad es bastante decente el logrado jugar varios juegos exigentes como Rúst., Raimbow six, CSGO y otros solo haciendo algunos ajustes gráficos y debo decir que para jugar en un monitor de no mas de 60hz o de 75hz es una opción bastante buena y económica para aquellos jugadores casuales, eso si puedes olvidarte del stream si vas a comprar estos componentes, ojo y si tienes una refrigeracion liquida y logras overclockearlo por encima de los 4.55ghz. podrás explotar su rendimiento al máximo, yo solo cuento con un radiador(no refrigeración liquida) y e podido overclockearlo a 4.55ghz, lógicamente, el overclock también depende de lo buena que sea la placa de cilicio de tu procesador.
