Picking between 2 CPUs

Just now, dreamhacking said:

Do you think a A8-7600 will be perfect fit then? (4 cores, and R7 integrated graphics) 

$50 CAD cheaper than an i3-6100

Yes, it'll perform admirably for a good few years doing what you want.

These 2 CPUs  are about the same price. I just want to know which one is a better choice.

 

1. A6-7400K APU

2. Intel G3258 with Integrated Graphics

 

I do not plan to get a dedicated GPU, I will be using the graphics power from CPU. 

I want a CPU that is reliable and won't die on me in the next 3 years at least. 

 

Thank you

Are you sure you couldn't upgrade to a basic i3?

Something like an i3-6100

I wouldn't recommend either of those.

A modest Core i3 or A8 would be a better fit.

Having used multiple Pentium and A6 machines (thankfully not owning them though), I cannot suggest them if the user plans on keeping their build for more than a year or two for basic desktop tasks anymore.

The A6-7400K is perfect for this sort of use. The graphics portion of the APU will work on Netflix and Skype much better than the IGP in a G3258 (or an i3-6100). You don't need a lot of CPU power for this - you can do these things on a phone or tablet, after all.

 

An A8-7600 would be even better. My wife's computer is an A8-7600 (I built).


A sieve may not hold water, but it will hold another sieve.
