I ordered new mobo and cpu and it will cost me €108,so basically what i would like to know ,is this good bang per buck or should i go for AMD Athlon II 250 X2 and some Asrock motherboard? Which one is better in overall performance? Im on a tight budget. I will use it mostly for internet surfing,playing games not so often and video playback.My english bad i know :D

the sandy bridge dual cores will be better than the old Athlon dual cores.

You made the right choice going with the G850 over the older Athlo II X2 250.

Maybe,but you dont see it my way.Im from EU and this setup was carefully selected on PCpartpicker and aranged to be send over the atlantic for a 85$ fee,so bassically it will cost me 600$+ compared to 650€ for same parts here in my country.
