You CPU/APU choice. This review, > http://www.anandtech...uilders-guide/2 will give you a good understanding of building using the Llano platform. I advice that you do not, AS ANY UPGRADE PATH IS VERY LIMITED,
"One thing to keep in mind is that Llano is basically a dead-end platform. AMD's Trinity will use socket FM2, so you won't be able to upgrade to anything faster than what we've currently listed." so I will suggest a build for you to consider using the Trinity Platform Socket FM2.

Newegg CPU comparison, > http://www.newegg.com/Product/Productcompare.aspx?Submit=ENE&N=100007671%2050001028&IsNodeId=1&page=2&bop=And&CompareItemList=343%7C19-113-282%5E19-113-282-TS%2C19-113-288%5E19-113-288-TS%2C19-103-943%5E19-103-943-03%23%2C19-113-281%5E19-113-281-TS%2C19-113-280%5E19-113-280-TS selected the A8-5600K.

Motherboard, selected a AMD A75 (Hudson D3) Platform. Buy from Newegg, look for the Pro Code.


Will post a link in about 3 Hours.

Gday JackNuts,


Been a while since I posted a build for your to consider, what do you think? An update would be much appreciated.
