Building a low cost APU system - featuring AMD A4-3400

Building A Low Cost APU System


Recently AMD set us the challenge of building a low cost APU system to see if it would be possible to build a decent media/productivity/gaming PC on a minimal budget. It's something different to a review which is always a nice change so we set about looking at what could be done when pretty much every component has to cost £60 or less.

Therefore in this article we will document our component choice, build process and the end performance of the low cost APU system. Testing will include HD playback, media conversion (GPU assisted) and gaming in some of the latest titles which include DiRT Showdown and Counter Strike: Global Offensive.
