AMD: Customer Feedback & Reviews

AMD A8-3850 APU Quad-Core Processor (AD3850WNGXBOX) Amazon Reviews

"Used this with the Gigabyte A75M-UD2H and built a great HTPC. I like the idea of not having to have any more things with fans that needed. I tried using one of the AMD E350 based systems 1st but Netflix would max out the CPU. With this CPU I only run 10 - 20% doing Netflix from inside Media Center on Windows 7 - 64 bit."

"I bought one of these for my very first computer build, something I have wanted to do for a very long time but just finally got around to doing it. While I wanted to put together a system that would perform I also had to be money conscious. I love Intel's processors but because of the price I decided to give AMD a try. I paired this with a Gigabyte a75m-ud2h motherboard and it works great. I built this for my sister and the most intensive use for it is Sims 3 so the on chip 6550 graphics were plenty, I did set the bios to dedicate 1024 of the system memory for graphics but really thats the only tweaking I did.

I'm pleasantly surprised by the WEI I get, my lowest score was a 5.9 for the Windows Aero stuff but all other scores were 6.6 and higher. Like I said I am new at this and since it didnt need much tweaking for the use it is getting I didnt try to crank the bios too much.

Lots of people on here do this all the time and will be able to give better more in depth information but I can tell you as a noob that using this processor with a good Gigabyte motherboard makes the process very easy. Next up, something a little more challenging, a gaming system."
