    if only uses 150 watts then why a 550 watt psu? wouldn't use an amd dualcore as not enough ram cache on it, would use an intel dualcore at least as more ram cache. up the ram to 8gigs being the system ram is shared with onboard video.

    Well, im using the 550 watt psu b/c its the cheapest one that I could find thaf is Semi modular. Note that I said that the system could only do lite gaming and steaming tv shows and movies which makes the 4gb of ram plenty for this system even as the apu can only take up to 512mb of ram for gpu processing. If I was going to use an intel cpu than it wouldn't be an apu, causing me to buy a dedicated graphics card for the system. Also, I probably wouldn't be able to find a motherboard that had inbuilt wifi/ 2 hdmi pirts and a dvi port and have a usb 3.0 connecter for the front of the case for the same price.

    Best Reguards,
    James
