Whats the BEST APU CPU?

The Title Says It All!! I am quite clueless when it comes to AMD cpu's and I would like to make a build with one. ( Or the best AMD cpu out there under $190 )

Remember under $190 :)

More about whats
  1. A8 3870K is their fastest APU
  2. Thanks!! Have a good motherboard recommend for this?
  3. Preferably under $120 :)
  4. Whats better this or a Phenom?
  5. Man.. you surely don't even know what you want..
    Do you want a good IGP? Want a good VGA Card?
  6. What are you doing with this computer? The Phenom II is a different socket type and doesn't have integrated graphics.
  7. loool, I'll mostly game and stufff. . . . . .. I was thinking of a 7850
  8. I would just go with a Phenom II (if you can find one ) and a discete video card.
  9. if you're thinking a 7850...please don't get an APU haha. Either a core i3 2100 for $110:

    a core i5 2450P for $189: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115231

    or a core i5 2500k for $205 (multiplier unlocked for overclocking):http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115072

    the core i3 is faster than anything AMD has to offer, and the i5s are better than the i3. pick whichever you want.
  10. If you live near a microcenter get a i5-2500k for $180 and call it a day. http://www.microcenter.com/single_product_results.phtml?product_id=0354589 . You don't want an APU if your using discrete graphics.
