... had the AMD llano APUs come out in 2010, things would've been ground-breaking. unfortunately, technology must take time to invest & develop. hopefully, things will look better in 2012 :)

Thanks for another roundup. That mini-motherboard is something else. That must be around the size they stick in those small lan gaming rigs. Always thought those were interesting.

The AMD A8-3850 and F1 board reviews were welcome. Most are positive, especially when considering the graphics performance. Only one of them paired them with a high end Radeon discrete card and that one saw a significant graphics performance boost.

So my idea for buying this setup and installing the XFX Radeon HD6870 Black into it may be a good one.

On another note, I just saw this monster! Yow!!

Dogs are great judges of character, and if your dog doesn't like somebody being around, you shouldn't trust them.
