An AMD APU System

AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core --> 119.99

ASUS F2A85-V PRO FM2 AMD A85X (Hudson D4) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI ATX --> 139.99

Crucial BLT4KIT4G3D1608DT1TX0 16GB kit (4GBx4), Ballistix 240-pin DIMM --> 115.99

Seagate Barracuda ST2000DM001 2TB 7200 RPM SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" --> 109.99

Antec Three Hundred Two Black Steel ATX Mid Tower --> 69.99

CORSAIR Enthusiast Series TX650 V2 650W ATX12V --> 89.99

ASUS Black Blu-ray Burner SATA BW-12B1ST/BLK/G/AS --> 59.99

Total --> 705.93

I recommend NewEgg.com. Quick service. Low prices. No problem returning stuff.

My own system is based on the AMD A8-3870K.

I use Cyberlink PowerDirector 10 for videos and recommend it. Does everything. A bit of a learning curve, though.

Also a bit of a learning curve with building a system. Definitely read up on it:


Mother Board

RAM (even 16GB is more than you need)

Graphics Card (integrated in CPU in this case)

Hard Drive

Computer Case (stick with mid-tower)

Power Supply (very important to get a good one)

Artic Silver CPU paste strongly recommended
