Not sure which processor is right for you? Read our AMD CPU Buying Guide

AMD's APUs (Accelerated Processing Units) combine standard CPU cores with Radeon graphics cores on the same silicon. These low-end Athlon and Sempron models use the AM1 socket and retail for between £20 and £40, yet are capable of handling everyday tasks and high definition video playback without needing a graphics card. They're the perfect starting point for building a basic, budget PC.
