Hello,

Please help me build PCs that will use A4-3400 without discrete graphics. I will use this in computer shop open almost 24/7 so efficiency, price, and performance must be considered. (best PSU?)

It will not be for demanding games such as METRO 2033 or Crysis.

PC purpose:

web browsing, watch online(youtube and others alike), office application(MS word, excel, etc.),
and gaming. (1366x768, low to mid settings)

Games I plan to play are:
>Casual games
>LAN and Online games: Special Force, DOTA, HON, Rohan, Zhu Xian Online, Grand Chase, Cabal Online, Perfect World, Dragonest, Allods, Lucent Heart, Karma, Pandora Saga, KOS, Crazy Cart, Flyff, RFonline, and silk road online.

Store I'm planning to buy is
http://pcx.com.ph/

I live in Manila, Philippines. If you have any other suggested store, please let me know.
Thank you in advance.

I'm not sure if the A4 can even do what you want, but here's a build:

http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... A4
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168... GSkill 1866 RAM, this platform responds well to RAM tweaking

Not sure on how much the price is but it will run those games well. You might want to get a generic case though because it's cheaper by a ton especially when bulk ordering.

PChub is in gilmore btw.

That comment from newegg was awesome. I can't believe this can be overclocked to 4.7 GHz with A75 chipset.
How about the A55? Can it overclock too? Because I don't need the Sata 6Gbps and USB3.0 for this build. I want to go cheap as I can.

Oh yeah, I would suggest you don't do any serious overclocking. Light OC would be fine but heavy OC would decrease your parts life.
