I do mean the "Athlon II X4 640" Hi there, I'm looking to upgrade the house general PC to be able to play 1080p video's. I was going to buy: Athlon II X4 640 - 3.0 Ghz http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-ADX640WFGMBOX-Athlon-II-640... GeForce 1GB GT 610 http://www.amazon.co.uk/gp/product/B0082FN8YA/ref=ox_sc... But would this: AMD A-Series A6 3670K http://www.amazon.co.uk/AMD-A-Series-Quad-Core-Processo... Do the same job but cheaper? Thanks, Joe.

All I want is for it to play blu-ray movies without freezing and stuttering like my current pc. Angry birds will be enough for me. I currently have this PSU: http://www.ebuyer.com/271798-corsair-430w-v2-cx-series-... Will this still be alright? I won't be overclocking. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

That PSU has more than enough power for either of those setups. Can't find your answer ? Ask ! Publish Related resources AMD Phenom x2 555BE or Athlon x3 450 ?
