This is a great system for those who need an inexpensive system with decent graphics. Basically, with AMD systems, you trade some CPU power for better integrated graphics. If you need a faster CPU, go with Intel Core i3/i5. If you need solid entry-level 3D graphics capability, choose AMD A8/A10.

In comparison to the recent Lenovo i5 deal, this PC has a slower processor but better integrated graphics, USB 3.0, Wi-Fi and Bluetooth wireless connectivity. If you were on the fence about the Lenovo thinking you needed an HD 6670, wireless connectivity and/or USB 3.0 ports in it, give this a try.

How does this compare against http://www.staples.com/HP-Pavilio...ze=certona ?

Is it worth $80 more?
Yes. I didn't bother posting that because it's not a deal to me. The CPU performance there is lacking, both in processing power and graphics. Yes, it will work, but that CPU is literally half as powerful as this one in many tasks.

If you are on a tight budget, I would recommend waiting for an i3 deal and adding an HD 6670-level graphics if necessary.

I recently built a hackintosh system for my daughter for about $400+. It consists of:

I3-3225 +GA-B75M-HD3 combo deal from MicroCenter =$145
16 GB of Cosair RAM = $75
Rosewill FBM-01-W cheap case = $21
Cosair CX-500 PSU = $30 (after $20 rebate)
128 GN Samsung 830 SSD = $80 ( bought it last december)
cheap LG DVD burner = $17
TP-LINK TL-WDN4800 Dual Band Wireless card = $30

It uses the integrated HD4000 but it's pretty fast for daily usage.So, I think you can build a decent system for about $400 bouncebouncebounce

I'm in the market for a computer. I've built plenty, but am going to get a Dell, Lenovo, HP, etc this time. A main concern of mine is how quiet it is. Can anyone here speak to the general level of fan/disk noise in these consumer grade boxes? I have a Dell Optiplex 980 next to me at work that is very quiet, so any comparisons to that machine would be great.
These HPs are absolutely silent. I have two similar machines within 3 feet of my chair and don't know they're running unless I put my ear within 6 inches or put my hand at the back of the fan. They usually use Seagate drives and I don't hear them either.

crossfire capability would make this deal quite good.

These HPs are dead silent, decent onboard graphics, passable CPU, USB 3.0, WiFi...all good things. Very similar to the one I picked up from a local shop for $80 last month or I'd be all over this. Already threw in another 8GB of ram that was FAR and a 650W power supply that was $15AR. Just need a good vid card like a 7850 or better and I'm set. Smilie

Seriously, it's a good deal... most DIY cheap case are flimsy and PSU is not better than OEM's. They may have higher wattage rating, but efficiency, noise and power factor are usually lower.

Too bad i don't need a new desktop right now.

Would this be a good deal for a solid gaming desktop? My father wants to play games, doesn't need the highest settings. Would this work for most new games ? Reps for responses

I would not recommend the AMD A10 APU as a budget gaming system.

If it were a budget general system with "light" gaming on the side, thats what its market is.

That's what it would basically be. He would be playing games like Day of defeat etc. Nothing too fancy and it would also double as the house computer that people get on to look things up, watch videos etc.

This will give you about the same graphics performance as HD 6670. Here is a big article with gaming benchmarks on Tom's Hardware. Page through it and see if that's the kind of performance you/your father can live with.

I just ordered one. So to hook this up to my monitor and its speakers I just need a DVI-D and optical audio cable, correct? Is Monoprice still the best place to get quality cables at the best price?

Also, if anyone sees a deal for add'l memory that will fit this PC, please share!

Light gaming or casual computing does not require more then 8GB. You dont need anything else.

If any upgrade was recommended, its to get a SSD, as its similar to sticking a turbo charger in the PC.

Come talk to me when you've built over 500 and deployed thousands of them my little satanic troll. The stuff I actually hand build, or rather instruct others to build because I'm too busy, attaches to multimillion dollar medical imaging equipment. The cards I buy are well beyond your measly satanic 200 buck budget.
OMG! I'm so impressed! You are my hero! You get OTHER PEOPLE to do stuff. Wow.

At least that's what you say. But, uh, what's that got to do with the consumer level stuff that people here actually buy?

PS: You are amazing.

Thinking of upgrading my current Intel Pentium 4 PC I built a couple of years ago...

Will I be able to install 4 additional SATA drives I have? I understand the motherboard supports it but will the PSU?
