This for $50, then Egg's got a MSI 880GMS-E41 AM3+ 880G HDMI Micro-ATX for $30 -AR$15, and 4Gb of 1333 (PC3 10666) say $25. So, just breaking $105 provides a great base for any home use build... you got to like that. Although, the AMD A4-5300 $55, a FM2 (D2) mobo are like $50-60, your still it right in there. Then my gut compels me to go with 1866 (PC3 14900), and them I'd get a case of "the might as wells" going the 8Gb option which is judicious, so that's $50-55. That's work to like $160'ish, which is still nice. However seat-of-the-pants you won’t feel much, other than a little better 3D graphics prowess from the HD 7480D while being a little more frugal to the wall socket. A-typical little quandary... but it’s really based on getting that 880G for a great price of $30. Say it's $45; the $40 difference ($120 vs. $160) for the new technology, efficient, APU with a bump in graphics, and mo-better memory is the elegant purchase. This might be a case of a little too late, I feel the parade has passed by for this, unless you got parts lying around and just need a CPU.
