That also depends on your video card, processor, how much memory you put in, what kind of disk or SSD so... what is your budget for the total system?

I already decided for an AMD A8-6500 using 8 GB of DDR3.

What i am not yet sure is the graphics card and the motherboard. My last system was using a biostar board and until now i was quite happy. So I am thinking to stick with that, but switch to a newer generation.

What do you think of the A55S3?

As i am in the motherboard forum i was hoping you could give me some insights about what is a good match for that processor and my usage profile. Maybe here are some user experiences already PDT_Armataz_01_01

for graphics i guess some mainstream ATI will do fine. Generally I am thinking to spend no more than 300 dollars for both parts.

Wouldn't a motherboard with on board graphics have more draw on the PC's CPU than if the PC had a separate video card ?????

just for the power, not for the processing speed, the graphics is done by a seperate section on the APU.

look for the A75 or A85X AMD chipset, you will get more out of the CPU (or APU) with these.. BIOSTAR are OK as a budget board, but check out ASRock, Gigabyte and some of the lower end ASUS boards will suit your needs...
