    This review is from: AMD A8-3870K APU with AMD Radeon 6550 HD Graphics 3.0GHz Unlocked Socket FM1 100W Quad-Core Processor – Retail – AD3870WNGXBOX (Personal Computers)

    I like this “APU” because it didn’t cost too much and it’s great for my home theater type PC (silverstone GDO5 case). It is a pretty fast processor giving me a windows experience index WEI score of 7.3 on the CPU and 6.7 on the graphics (which is done by the APU, no PCI-E card installed). I also own the A6-3500 APU and it’s great too. This A8-3870k does run quite a bit hotter than my A6-3500 which is a 65 watt processor. I Just mention that because in a smaller case for HTPC the A6-3500 would be a better choice, that little APU is probably the best value I’ve seen in a long time (I have a “review” of that also).

    Why did I get this APU? Well it’s “unlocked” and was only ten bucks more than the A8-3850, that made it an easy decision for me. I’ve been building/overclocking pc’s for years and I just like the flexibility. My ASUS FM1a75-M Pro does not respond well to overclocking the front side bus, so having an unlocked multiplier is nice. I have not tested the overclocking potential yet because I’m using the stock cooler and my case doesn’t have room for anything other than the Scythe Big Shuriken low profile cooler.

    Why do you want this processor? If it’s to do some hardcore gaming your barking up the wrong tree. If it’s to be a budget friendly jack of all trades computer with good performance then this is the cats meow. I use this as a home theater pc, casual gaming, and office work.

    UPDATE:

    I added the ASUS HD 6670 1GB card that’s here on Amazon. For those that are interested in Crossfire with the APU (a main selling point) the 3dmark11 score is about 2500 and the 3dmark Vantage score is about 9350. How good does that stack up to the competition? I don’t really know but I can play “The Witcher 2” on medium settings at 1440×900 resolution, less than ideal for a gaming machine IMO but it works for me. From what I’ve been reading the witcher 2 is one of the most graphically intensive games out now, and I can play it at decent settings. Again this is not supposed to be a competitive gaming machine but a jack of all trades setup with bang for your buck and I’m happy. Philosopy of use friends ala Nutnfancy.

    Not as avid a gamer as I once was. So I can live without having the best vid card and fastest processor out. This is a great value and delivers enough performance to play just about any game with medium to high graphics settings (assuming you are playing 1920×1080). Runs very cool as well. The CPU to buy if you don’t feel like breaking the bank on the top of the line CPU/Video Card combo.

    I just started to build my desktop computer and it seemed that choose this processor was the best option. I have not yet completed the pc so I’ll have to update this review.
    Regarding the time of product delivery, Amazon give this processor and motherboard in a single package, small, very safe and easy, arrived earlier than expected while being free with Super Saver Shipping.
    Future computer:
    AMD A8-3870K APU with AMD Radeon 6550 HD Graphics 3.0GHz Unlocked Socket FM1 100W Quad-Core Processor – Retail – AD3870WNGXBOX, and acquired.
    Gigabyte AMD Socket FM1 Dual Graphic Micro ATX Motherboard GA-A75M-S2V, and acquired.

    UPDATE 1:
    Silicon Power 8GB (2x4GB) DDR3-1600 PC3-12800 Non-ECC 240-Pin SDRAM Dual Channel Desktop Memory Dual Channel Kit SP008GBLTU160V22 and acquired.
    I found it an excellent choice in ram.
    Amazon sent the product in a package very light and safe, and as usual, on the estimated date of arrival.
    awaiting the arrival of:
    Seagate Barracuda 7200 1 TB 7200RPM SATA 6 Gb/s NCQ 64MB Cache 3.5-Inch Internal Bare Drive ST1000DM003, still in “Shipping Soon”
    definitely have to buy this hard drive for its low price and excellent performance levels.

    more updates soon…..
    looking for more pieces
