i cant decide between these two, i was going to go with the g620 but it only supported 1066 ram so i had to go with the G840 which supports 1333.

anyways this is the whole build:

i know there no is HDD im aware of that. all these from newegg


i know the amd kicks ass in the graphics part, but this is purely for office use, like multiple tabs open and a few pdf files and office files open.. nothing graphicy much.
what do you guys think? even the G620 better than amd huh?

also, if you could cut the cost of this build what you take out?

Get the Intel G620 because it's faster and better than AMD Liano A4...
How much money you want to spend because the price can get you better one... What are you going to use it for?

well the price was somewhat set for a 200$ budget since im going to make 5 of the same build, but i dont think thats gonna be possible right now especially with the HDD prices too.

like i said, its just for office use, but these guys have alot of tabs open, ms office, adobe reader, some other programs but nothing intense. and i want it somewhat future proof, not a i5 or anything but something decent and somewhat upgradeable. the board is lg 1155 which is awesome for upgrading if ever needed.

your thoughts?

There are bundles for the Llano, i would go with that and save some buck.
Try one of those nice HEC HTPC cases that include a 300watt psu, HEC is solid.
4gb 1600mhz is good for you.

A bit late to the thread, but....
I just did my first built with a G840 @stock and was really disappointed, I dont know what the benchmarks say but it took longer to install windows and setup than an AMD Athlon II 250 I had in for repair at the same time.

The i3 systems Ive come across have been blindingly quick so I was very very very disappointed with the G840

i'm an intel SB pentium G840 user here... i'm satisfied by its performance... installed win 7 (64 bit) at 1st and currently, the rig's OS now is Ubuntu 11.10 (64 bit)...

the processor's performance is quite snappy on the applications that I used... i can compare it to my current gaming rig w/ is also a SB i3-2120...
