Building on a budget with AMD
By Jeff Checchi, on October 18th, 2013
After some recent “discussion” on our Facebook page about the lack of the use of AMD components in our system builds I thought I would fulfill the desires of the AMD loyalists and build an AMD system that can beat out Intel in the price/performance department. When it comes to building the highest end system, Intel is still at the top, but not everyone is planning on spending multiple thousands of dollars on their PC. For those who want to build a capable PC without breaking the bank, AMD has some excellent offerings.
