Finally after long period of 6 years, it's time to say goodbye to my Pentium -4 2.8 Ghz. And i am planning to buy a budget CPU. I am a bit confused with 3 of the systems!!! As i already have purchased 500GB Seagate SATA, 9500GT(I know it sucks) and 18.5'' LED, i just need to buy Processor, Motherboard, cabinet, Ram!!!!
My main use of the desktop will be Surfing Internet, youtube, watching movies and sometimes playing games. As i am a casual gamer, i will be playing games on Low-Medium settings.
Following is the system which i am confused. So what do u think what should i get!!! Since i am very tight on budget, price does matter for me!!!
1). Amd x2 260 3.2 Ghz - $60 Asus M5-A78 - $52 Cabinet - standard 450Watt $25 Transcend - 2 GB DDR3 - $15 Total - $ 152 Passmark CPU Benchmark - 1883
2). Amd A6-3500 2.1 Ghz - $75 Biostar A55ML - $57 2GB DDR3 - $15 same cabinet Total - $ 162 Passmark CPU Benchmark - 2119
3). Intel Pentium G620 - $60 compatible mobo - $52 other same as above Total - $152 Passmark CPU Benchmark - 2468
Another important thing is i am planning to buy a Graphics Card in few months so i am tempted to buy Amd A-6 3500 because it does support Hybrid GPU. So is that a plus point??
total $292 i know more than you were expecting but you got your graphics card there too
I am really not in the position of stretching my budget right now , as i am not asking my father for the money!!! your suggestion does makes sense!!! but i would have to wait couple of months for your suggested system!!!
