You would have got a much better system by just getting a graphics card for the 965BE which is a far superior processor.

Yip, defo a step back, but then again they rank the Llano better than the X 4's.

Llano is basically an Athlon II X4 processor with built in graphics, it's 32nm instead of 45nm and some other changes, but performance and architecture is still that of K10(Phenom, Athlon II, Phenom II chips are all K10).

That A8 3850 is a little slower than your old Phenom II 965 primarily because of the lower clock speed.

Its a nice chip, but APU's are still in their infancy right now, I think they are really interesting nonetheless, I would like to do a basic HTPC build with a Llano setup.

Stick to the Phenom II for raw power, but I'm curious about the "graphics card expired" thingy.

Did the video card broke? Are you running on the integrated graphics? If so, instead of getting the whole system, buy a discrete card and use it for rendering. nVidia should be a good call thanks to CUDA. You could aim for a GTX460 or higher.

Cheers!

It would have been cheaper to just a buy a GPU for you Phenom, it would have given you better performance.
