thank you for the advice, my dad is still a few months away from wanted to start the build so things will probably change before then and prices will alter. thanks for the info about the amd cpu i dont know much about them honestly
The thing about AMD cpu is that they are the best bang for the buck. For budget builds, they are inexpensive and can handle everyday tasks. The FX series also have a decent graphics core so they can handle videos nicely. The latest Intel Celeron chips (G5xx series) are good deals also but I'm not sure how they compare with the AMD FX chips.
