Good enough for budget build? Tags: CPUs Build Office Last response: September 23, 2012 8:39 AM in CPUs Share bambinobomber September 22, 2012 11:10:02 PM I'm considering to buy the A4-3400 @2.7 GHZ for a budget build. It's mostly for M.Office and watching movies. I also want to run 2 monitors, so I'm getting a Gygabite MOBO with DVI and a VGA (D-Sub). This APU supports dual display, right?

I recommend the A6-3600, quad core @ 2.1/2.4Ghz, has faster GPU but make sure you pair it with DDR3-1866 for optimum memory performance. To check for a Gigabyte motherboard use http://www.gigabyte.com/support-downloads/cpu-support.a... I believe the GA-A75M-DS2 to be the best and you can run 2 monitors using the DVI and d-sub or but plugging in a second cheap ATI GPU. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Get the answer esrever a b à CPUs September 23, 2012 8:39:01 AM The cpu will be enough for office and movies. It does support 2 monitors as long as the motherboard does. It should be enough for a budget box. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
