My System Specs


It'll beat the snot out of Intel's integrated graphics, but will fall short when it comes to CPU focused tasks...It's basically just an improvement over Llano, not a major revolution.

It'll make a great platform if you want a Very SFF PC (say in your living room) and won't have room for a discrete GPU. It should game adequately.

If you DO have room for a discrete GPU however, the best bet is a low power Intel I3 and a small GPU such as a 7750.

HTPC: Z77A-G45; 3770K; Zalman FX70; 2x4GB Kingston HyperX 1600Mhz; MSI GTX960; 2x 128GB Crucial M4 SSD; 4TB WD Red, 2x 2TB WD Green; Corsair RM650I; Corsair Carbide 600C;
Son's Rig: M5A97; FX8350; CNPS20LQ; 2x4GB Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz; Powercolor 7950; 250GB Crucial MX200; 320GB WD Black HDD; SPI 700W; Bitfenix Shinobi;
