Need some ideas on AMD Budget Build

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
I have been putting new parts into my family members old old dell desktop computer and the stupid machine finally took its last processing breath earlier today. Me being a gamer I spend a lot on my rigs and set ups and I really do not know much about what good low end parts are available for people who do moderate gaming and a lot of video editing. I did a bit of research and I have been studying the APU llano from AMD for a little bit and I personally think its the best bang for the buck since the budget would be around 550ish. I do not need any peripherals at all, I just need a new rig. So any help concerning either a APU llano build or something equivalent for around 550 including Operating System, I don't feel like going back to jail again biggrin.gif

Thats the desired llano chip but ill take the next best one if I have too.

As always many thanks!

You can replace that power supply with this Rosewill unit, and you don't need a hexa-core for a mid-range gaming system this Phenom II 965 will do just fine.

ahh, I completely missed that part, definitely get the 1055t. You can also browse the marketplace to find it a bit cheaper too.

Can't really find any benchmarks doing a direct comparison, this is closest I could find and it shows the 3850 vs 1075T among other processors. The site is not in English but the graphic should be easy enough to understand.

I think going with the option that is cheaper overall would be the way to go here. The performance differences are there, but most of them aren't big enough (5-10 seconds) to warrant losing sleep over trying to min/max between the two.

Just did more reading, and apparently Vegas will take whatever you can give it. Go with more cores in the 10XXT variants since this is where you will see the biggest difference between the two.

So in your personal opinion a llano build which is cheaper would be the best route? Im trying to just get them a rig that will last another 5-7 years with minor upgrades that will do what they want

I think it really boils down to where you want to draw the line between how much you spend and what performance you get. You stated in the OP that you are on a budget of $550 for the whole rig, and I am guessing this includes Windows. Assuming a best case scenario, Windows removes 89 USD from your 550 budget, leaving you with $461 for everything else. Are you considering buying used components? That should help alleviate the stress on the budget some.
