This is my first post, but I didn't see this listed yet when doing a search.

I don't think you can do much better than this without building it yourself. The A10-7800 (65W TDP) APU hits AMD's sweet spot [tomshardware.com] for performance vs power consumption too.

AMD A10-7800 4MB L2 cache processor
AMD Radeon HD8760 graphics
8GB DDR3 1600MHz RAM, expandable to 16GB
1TB 7200RPM HDD stores thousands of files
24X Super-Multi DVD?RW drive
Windows 8.1
HDMI Output Port
6-in-1 media reader supports: Secure Digital, Secure Digital High Capacity, xD, MultiMediaCard, Memory Stick and Memory Stick PRO formats
6 USB ports (2 x 3.0 and 4 x 2.0) for fast transfers
Smooth internet connections with built-in 10/100/1000 Ethernet LAN
1-Year Warranty

Staples also currently has asimilar PC with an Intel Core i3-4150 CPU [staples.com] on sale for the same price. I felt the AMD one was the better deal though.

I couldn't find an expiration date for the sale price on these so get them while you can.
If you purchase something through a post on our site, Slickdeals may get a small share of the sale.

A comparable NEW desktop PC with a 4th gen Intel Core i3 CPU usually sells for around $380-$400, while one with an AMD A10 APU usually can be found for around $470-$530. This is one of those "it depends on who you ask" questions, but if you ask me an AMD Kaveri A10 APU is generally better than 4th gen Intel Core i3 CPU for what most people use a computer for (web browsing, watching videos, light gaming, occasional photo/video editing, etc).

Plus much better graphics card. This is an excellent deal IMO. Buy a $50 128gb ssd, install the OS on it, and you have a very capable pc.

I got excited when I saw this...was ready to buy. Unfortunately looks like its lacking wireless which is a deal breaker for me.

For comparison, I just returned a brand new clearance Lenovo 535 bought for $299. It had only 6GB, an AMD A8-5500 processor, integrated AMD Radeon HD7560D and wireless. Had major problems with Windows update, so tired of dealing with it. But this looks like a decent deal if you don't need wireless.

It's close [tomshardware.com] in some CPU benches, but it's safe to say the i3 wins in general on that front. And the i3 4330 tested is very very [cpuboss.com] close to the i3 4150's performance, minus the integrated graphics refresh (4400 vs 4600).

Here's more benches with the lower i3 4130: Link [bit-tech.net] (Hint: Still beats the 7800.)

What it comes down to is this:

If you plan on pairing the desktop with a discrete graphics card, get the i3. It's faster at all the tasks you mentioned, minus gaming.

If you want to lightly game with only the onboard graphics, the APU is the one to get, easily outperforming what Intel offers.

So would this computer run a 1440P monitor over HDMI at full resolution?

I need it to run something like less (preferably dual monitors)

http://www.amazon.com/HP-32-Inch-...B00NNQGHXC

Also these are regular size towers correct and no small form factor?

Thanks,

I plan on buying one of these for my sister in-law. She needs a 2 monitor setup for her work? Does anyone know if both the vga and hdmi connections work at the same time or will I need to buy a separate video card?

So... does it really come with a separate Radeon HD 8760 graphics?

In for the i3 config to replace my wife's old budget Vista machine in the office that's starting to make scary noises. This will run circles around it.

This guy knows what he is talking about. I am ciopying this into the Wiki.

BTW, welcome to SD. This deal is Front Page worthy. If it goes, FP, that would be a hell of a first post. Big Grin
