suggest a nice cheap mother board to go along with it as well my toatal buget in 150 $
for processor,motherboard and ram
Sorry to rain on your parade, but $150 will easily go on any one component.
>motherboard: mobo problems are the single most difficult to diagnose, and usually cannot be fixed. There are definitly cheap motherboards out there, some under $100, but they are not "nice". Foxconn, for example, is one of the most economical mobos out there, but poorly engineered and poorly made. I have one come in at least once every week.
>Processor: if you want to save money, go with AMD. I have built with AMD processors exclusively for years and only had one fail. Your best bang for the buck.
>Ram: again, you will pay for good memory, and you will pay in sweat and curses with cheap memory. Your choice. For 4 gigs of RAM (don't go any lower, especially if you are going to game) it will take most of your $150.
I can tell from your post that you have not done your homework. Study the different components until you have a deeper knowledge of what they will do so you can make an informed decision. I have built every computer I have ever owned in the last 30 years, I have built for other people, and I work on folks computers every week. The above suggestions come from years of watching other people make poor quality decisions. I wish you the best in your hunt!
[EDIT]: Sorry, I didn't address the subject of the APU-my bad. I use Newegg.com for my components because of their stellar customer satisfaction record. The A4 4000 was no longer available so I can't comment on it. The A4 6300 is still available so I reviewed the specs on that. Note that it only has 1 meg of L2 cache, and that, to me, is a deal breaker. Any processor that you will want should have at least 4 meg L2 orL3 cache.Your cache can make or break performance, and this cache is way too low. Remember, the video is sharing your memory and clock cycles with the CPU. They do not specify the FSB, but I will bet dollars to dimes it is low-another deal-breaker. This system is going to be way too slow for even medium gaming, and forget going online gaming, you will be cannon fodder for your opponents. Remember, AMD runs hot, so you will need good cooling if you are going with air (not liquid). I have built dozens of units using AMD processors and I like them, but they do run hotter than Intel so don't get nervous about it.
Bottom line: this CPU is great for movie streaming, ordinary web surfing and light gaming. But it was never intended for heavy graphics or gaming. Check the users' reviews on Newegg.
