Hey guys wondering if there is any of you that know good apu builds for $500 or less.
ATM no preferred shops or what ever just seeing what people think of them.
KEEP IN MIND actual using the gpu on the APU as graphics.\
THANKS IN ADVANCE
-The 400 shader gpu built into Llano is not much faster than your current gt220.
It does however have a 2.9ghz quad core.
-Since you already have ddr2 memory, a cheaper outdated am2+ or am3 board that supports ddr2 memory would be your cheapest upgrade.
-If you are running a ide hdd, use them as extra storage drives and get a new boot drive like a seagate 500gig sataIII. A old ide drive will be only about 50mb/s and the new drive is over 100mb/s also the seek time is much less.
Wow thanks, i wasnt really gonna upgrade to a APU, getting a new pc at end of year (if finances say yes) was gonna build 2 from scratch for my brothers, wanted them to be cheap, as they will only play minecraft and games that pre date 2008. But thanks heaps, could you suggest a M-ATX case with a psu in it? and 4gb of ram would be sufficient, personal atm i wouldnt go over 8 gb of ram unless it was a sandy-e build.
