Hi guys,

I was considering building a really cheap computer for a relative of mine, so it doesn't really have to be top spec at all.

I was wondering what APU i could chuck in, doesn't have to be very good at gaming, but at least be able to run videos on youtube at 1080 without stutter, maybe some minor gaming. E.g League of legends etc.

What would be the cheapest ideal APU for that.

Cheers.
