    AMD A6 or A8

    Just curious as to whether there is any benefit in going to AMD A8 processor as opposed to A6 processor. A6 Being Dual core threaded and A8 Quad core.

    looking at possible options AMD a little cheaper than Intel especially if Iam able to get away with a m/board around $80's And get a better Graphics card

    I wouldn't get either!

    I think they're too slow even for the relatively low price.

    There are better value for money CPUs.

    If you can try to stick with an FX series CPU.
