6550D is closer to HD3650/GT220/9500GT. Just BARELY enough for 1280x720 gaming on medium with most titles in dx9(45-60fps). Just curious; why are you looking at APU's as an option? They are good if you do mainly media and don't game much.
lol. GT220 and 9500GT is crappier than my 8800GT from my googling XD.. Yeah, I dont think I'll think about APUs, considering I have to buy a discrete radeon 6xxx video card to pair with the APU to be decent.
So, today I found out someone owed me money. Either I forgot and/or decided to let it go cause she was close to me. She reminded me that she'll pay me back soon, since now I need money.. I'm like YEAH. Lolz, I MIGHT increase my budget a little bit up to 700 dollars from 600 dollars (including tax)... and get maybe a 200ish dollar vid card in a later date.
