AMD A6-3500 Llano 2.1GHz X3 Questions

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I'm trying to upgrade my Sig rig, I plan on using the left over parts for something else ( this thread isn't about that ) . I want to start with the Llano and work my way through .
goal is under $500 for PSU , MB , OS , ram, and Blue RAY ( including the Llano )
1. Do the new AMD chips pull less power than the older chips? I need a PSU that can power 4 fans, pump and everything else. I've been told the higher powered PSUs are overkill. Is this true?
2. I need a reliable MB for the chip at a good price , but I may have that covered on a combo deal.
3. I need ram.
4 . Is going with Llano X2 or X3 a true upgrade or am I better off upgrading with a AM3 platform with a X4 or X6?
