    AMD Good for Cubase / Audio Production / Video Production / Gaming

    Hi all,

    I was wondering, is an AMD Athlon 860 good for audio production / video production / gaming...basically all around every day work/gaming needs.

    I have a budget of about 650 but I want something that I could do all around.

    This is the build I put together on pcpartpicker.com.

    Any info or tips would be greatly appreciated.

    AMD is great for multi-core/Multi-threaded applications. Generally you would want the FX series though. The more cores the better.

    You build had a bunch of problems with it. so, I made some tweaks.

    First off, you selected a PSU that was only 80+ certified. Not bronze/Silver/gold/Platinum/Titanium. that is asking for trouble.
