    the best CPU for under £100, 25 Jun 2012

    perfect for a dual graphics set up, use an AMD FM1 A75 chipset motherboard, the A55 chipset lacks usb3 and sata 3 6gb/s, so the extra £5 on a A75 board makes sense, also get an amd 6670 gpu, DDR3 1600/1866 mhz memory, with the AS Rock boards ( AS Rock FM1 A75 Pro4 M), you will be able to overclock the APU, the cpu portion will over clock quite easily to 3.7 ghz, and the igp will overclock from 600 mhz, to 800 mhz, so a substantial increase in performance, leading to around 20-30% improvement in frame rates, also, the AS rock can overclock memory, and the 6670 can easily be overclocked too, by around 15-20%, so this APU, paired with an overclockable board, can easily play any modern game.

    Crysis 2, DX11 @1080p set to Highest = 46 FPS ( without overclock = 28 FPS)

    A dual graphics set up can really push the pixels, and cost under £180, a complete pc based on this system can be built for around £300, so its outstanding value for a budget gaming setup, and should last for 3-4 yrs.

    Also, choose a board with crossfire support, that way, when the dual graphics set up can no longer play demanding titles ( about 4 yrs away ), you can add in a couple of GPU’s to extend the life of the apu + board even further.

    Hopefully, the buyers will see the benefit of overclocking this black edition apu, the K moniker dictates that the apu multiplier is unlocked, and, depending on which board you chose, it can easily achieve an overclock of around 20%

    Installed this on a MSI A75 motherboard and paired with a Asus 6750 graphic’s card – enabled Dual Graphics mode.

    This thing is fast for the price! (coming from a Athlon X2 4600). Overclocking if fantastic, so far i’m up to 3.5ghz on the standard heatsink and fan supplied.

    If you had bought this from amazon you can get a rebate from AMD for £10. Hurray though as it ends in august!

    Highly recommended!

    I did do some research, AMD Vs Intel, sockets, speeds and price. Decided I would stick with AMD as I could not see any justification for spending a lot more on Intel.
    I married this processor up with a Gigabyte SKT-FM1 A75-UD4H Motherboard, Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB SATA III 6 Gbps, Internal 3.5 inch Hard Drive, Western Digital Caviar Green 1TB SATA III 6 Gbps Internal 3.5 inch Hard Drive, 700 watt power unit and a descent multi fan case.
    I’m not bothered about over clocking, in fact I’m not sure what it means or does. What I like is the fact I can have a number of programs open at the same time and it’s still switches between them easily. It opens window fast and I’m chuffed to hell with it. I know this is not a very tec review but the A8 3870 works and works really well.
    I did make one error when I partitioned the hard drive, I did not allow enough space on c.drive and I really thought I had blown it but I found a little package called Mini Tool Partition Wizard and that saved my bacon by letting me increase the c.drive size.
    I fancy building another one now but what the hell would I do with two computers :-)
