It might last awhile, but that will not be good for any gaming above 1080p at low- med settings, unless ur playing CS:GO, then u get all the FPS u want.

It will be 1080p60.

that's the point, it can't get to 1080p 60fps at higher settings AT ALL!

I wouldn't make statements like this.

It highly depends on the title the OP wants to run.

But yes, that CPU and GPU are not the best for any modern AAA (read: demanding) title.

Faster ram, way better gpu, and cpu with more threads and cores all for a bit less and a nice upgrade path

Why the APU with a discrete GPU? Wouldn't it make more sense to get a CPU with more power and not powerful integrated graphics?

Where are you finding that the g5400 is faster? also the g5400 has integrated graphics also so not sure what you mean if u think the 2200g is weaker because its integrated graphics aren't as bad?

both videos and any other benchmark will show the 2200g is faster or just as fast as the g5400 along with the fact you can overclock the 2200g for essentially free performance also not to mention if you ever plan on playing games or editing and can use more cores/ threads a 1600 is $40 cheaper then a i5 9400f which is still on 6 threads

I'm not saying that the G5400 is faster, and I know that most CPU's will have integrated graphics of some sort. I'm saying that it would make more sense to budget money in the CPU department towards more CPU power, and not pay extra for APU performance.

can you explain to me what "cpu power" is? because to just about any other person who knows computers would say cpu power would be the strength of the cpu so when i present benchmarks that show the 2200g is faster im not sure what you mean by cpu power, especially since you can choose if you want to oc just the cpu and not the apu included as that is its separate thing
