Hi, I'm trying to build a budget computer; this is actually my first time.

I plan to do a lot of multi-tasking like opening multiple tabs in internet explorer (potentially 8+), have a TV show or movie running (GOM player), itunes or samsung KIES, microsoft word or excel, skype, PDF files, etc. On occasion, i will run photoshop.

My budget is around 65$ max and I live in Korea so the prices are a little different.

I do no plan on getting a separate graphics card at this time.

I looked at a few and boiled it down the ones listed below.

AMD A4 3400
AMD A6 3500
Intel Pentium G620 @ 2.60GHz
Intel Pentium G645 @ 2.90GHz

I was also curious as to which CPU graphics was better the AMD or Intel

Thanks in advance :)

If you want good integrated graphics then go with amd apu and if you are going to get gpu then get intel g645.
