monu_08 I think you have your facts mixed up. The AMD APU's only win without a discreet graphics card installed in the system. Otherwise the I5 2500K beats anything on the AMD side, which I find sad because I have been with AMD for like 5 years now and only recently bought a Phenom II 965 to upgrade from my Athlon x2 6000+.
Which leads me to my suggestion of the Phenom II 965 with a good cooler. It can beat the 2400 when Overclocked to about 4-4.2Ghz which is pretty decent when comparing the prices of the two.
