Wayyyy more than enough, I'm using a A6 amd chip with 4 gigs of ram and it handles anything I throw at it so this would be rock solid

Can anybody confirm whether or not this has USB 3.0? The description says it does while the specs say otherwise.

According to the manual, it has both USB 3.0 and 2.0.

Great if you don't mind the tower case (non-small form factor). It has HDMI out and very good graphics. It also has a fairly power efficient 65W processor (some A-series processors use 100W CPUs).

ended up getting this from my Staples for $270 - was "open box"
Lenovo H520
http://www.staples.com/Lenovo-H52...sc_content

3rd Generation Intel® Core™ i3-3240 processor
6GB DDR3 memory, 1TB HDD storage
1TB hard drive

Hopefully this does the trick as a HTPC

I keep reading the AMD Radeon together work great I'm not sure if that's true anybody can chime in?

Intel and nvidia never work as flawlessly together as AMD+Radeon both from the same manufacturer.

Thanks deelseaker for the answers. I do have one more though. I would like to be able to run two monitors, either as mirroring or as an extended desktop every once in a while. I see that you dont recommend this model if I were planning on running a discrete graphics card, but I'm really not looking to game. Is the motherboard on this thing really that limiting or would I be able to throw in a graphics card, albeit a simple one, and have no worries?

You can install a discrete graphics card. I wasn't recommending it specifically for gaming as you would be wasting the integrated one.

Specifically for your needs (running dual monitors), I think you should be able to do it without adding discrete graphics. There is an HDMI out and a VGA out. Either/both can be easily converted to DVI via simple adapters (and with no signal loss in the case of HDMI).

I'm a bit behind the times.. I keep getting told to NOT buy AMD anymore.. Apparently the intel i3/i5/... series blows away the AMDs in every way?

As others have said, it would be fine for an HTPC, but a bit overkill if that's all you planned on doing. If casual gaming interests anyone in the house, pairing this with a wireless controller or two would be a great way to get more value out of the purchase. Picking up a few games via Humble Bundle deals is very inexpensive and it has enough power to play a lot of really great games with acceptable settings for a casual gamer.

I am thinking it should. I looked through the past two FP threads discussing this PC, and no one confirmed or denied that it could.

I wonder if this has HDMI output. I would like to connect it to my TV as a HTPC.

I wouldn't say in "EVERY" way. AMD is more proficient at multi-taking, while the intels are better at doing single functions.
The differences aren't that dramatic either...think of tenths of a second differences for either and the term "blown away" becomes fairly moot.

This an excellent budget PC.
I own an AMD A8 Llano, great general purpose PC; streams movies and does gaming ok low to medium settings. This A10 PC is even better.
Serious PC gamers need not apply (or add a video card).
If you're on a budget, look no further.
