If you are looking for a dirt cheap mobo that works for this, and has hdmi, see:
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.a ... 6813135325

comes to 24$ + 5$ s/h (USA).

I wouldn't buy it, (1 review only, and wouldn't POST, and never used the brand). But if you want to roll the dice 24$ for a mobo is dirt cheap.
Price on newegg.ca is 59.99 - $20 rebate, and shipping is +$10

Better off with the MSI P33 for $45 AR from tigerdirect IMO.

Works out to $30 if you live close to the border, are willing to do MIR... But like I said, wasn't for me. Some people wanted a breakneck cheap mobo (regardless of specs).

I coughed up 65$ for ASRock MB-A75MHVS from amazon, since they throw in shipping. I don't mind ASRock (used them before in the past), met my requirement spec-wise...

By the way, the MRI is a $20 prepaid AMEX (for the cpu)... and you have to wait roughly 8 weeks. As an aside, if you got charged shipping on "free shipping" day call or email TigerDirect, they will fix it.

according to tomshardware, this chip seems to be comparable to a low end i3, is that true?
Not really.

It's comes in below the socket 1155 Pentium G600/G800 series chips, which would make it somewhat comparable to the socket 1155 Celeron dual-cores. (Such as this Intel G550 2.6ghz for $43

Similar raw CPU performance, however the differences in underlying architecture become obvious when you try to do some gaming.
Saw a benchmark the other day showing the G630 at ~50% higher framerates than the A4-3400 when using the same dedicated graphics card.

No! I still need to pay shipping yesterday.
I believe free shipping only on some items only.

I bought this board from TD to go with that chip...GIGABYTE GA-A55M-DS2 AMD A Series Motherboard - Micro ATX, Socket FM1, AMD A55 Chipset, 1866MHz DDR3, SATA II (3Gb/s), RAID, 7.1-CH Audio, Gigabit LAN, USB 2.0. It came with $10 mail in rebate. Got it for $39 including the rebate. I hope it's a good board...All i need now is cheap RAM and I'm all set...Of course it didn't even occur to me about not have HDMI till after...Oh well..

I did call TD for the free shipping, TD said that this AMD A4-3400 APU was not qualify for free shipping on this "free shipping day" that I ordered. Only limited items are qualify for the free shipping!
I am not sure whether it is true or not?
Did anyone get free shipping on this AMD A4-3400 APU ?
