This is the lowest I've seen this chip anywhere. $72 at Amazon and $79.99 at Newegg. Great price for a 65w APU with decent GFX. Link...

Good price.

The A6 X4 3670K Black Edition 2.7GHz Quad Core is $89.99. Probably a more powerful chip with better graphics than the i3-2100 for the same price. Runs hotter, but that's about the only drawback I see.

Do you think the heat would be a problem in an ITX build?

BTW, they are now selling the G620 for $39.99 in addition to the G630 for $49.99.

I am curious if this would be a better buy than getting a G620? I was initially going to get the G620 at MC to pair with an HD5670.

Thanks for the link. I'll just stick with the G620. At the price (assuming I can find one) is a great deal for a cheap HTPC build.

Good choice. The only value for Llano is the integrated GPU. If you're installing an HD 5670, the Pentium G620 is a better option.

Yes, in summary the integrated graphics are much stronger in the AMD part and the CPU is much stronger in the Intel part. I would question the need to add an additional graphics card to the Intel CPU unless you wanted 3D.

The only reason I am adding an additional graphics card is cause I have it sitting in my closet and needs to be used. Might as well use it.
