It does not look bad at all, but the AMD chip is a rather low-end,
budget processor for a machine with 4GB of RAM, an SSD and a largish
hard disk. I would suggest looking at an Intel Core i5 and a suitable
motherboard, which should outperform the AMD chip by quite a large
That's the kind of advice I'd like to hear, I couldn't find any current comparison articles between Intel and AMD - and the last time I kept track of what went on in the magical world of CPU's AMD was the one to go for
But I have to admit, that was around the time Intel had their Celeron's on the market.
Core i3 are the budget low-end Intel chips now; Core i5 are midrange
and Core i7 are high-end. If you can afford it, the higher-end chips
use the LGA 1366 socket, which is a good thing if your budget permits.
It has a triple-channel memory interface whereas the lower-end chips
use an LGA1156 socket with just dual-channels to memory.
I am looking for the best thing, within a not too large budget - so I think I'll take your advice on the i5.
So, this is the system I came up with:

And then I read Joep's message. Thanks for reminding me of TomsHardware.com - I had totally forgotten about that site
