Does upgrade from A4-3400 to A6-3650 worth $40? Just brought the Fry's A4 combo with same MB at $50.
The best video card the A4 will crossfire with is the HD 6450. The A6-3650 will hybrid crossfire with an HD 6670. Plus you get an even bigger kick with faster memory, this is the one case where you really should get DDR3 -1600 memory. The A6 plus an HD 6670 will play most games (with eye candy turned off as necessary), and will also let you do significant post-processing for HTPC. I've never really considered this, as the HD 6450 won't let you do significant post-processing - but the A4/6450 crossfire just might. I would say it's well worth the $50, but it does depend if you plan to do anything except the lightest gaming on it.

The build is for htpc, mainly for recording SD program from dish, and play back on TV via hdmi (using dvi -> hdmi adapter). I don't think I'm going to play any serious games with this machine, so may be A4 is good enough? The post-processing you mentioned did catch my eyes though, I think that's what help playback SD in better quality, right?
