I think Atom is kind of a bit lower side when it comes to performance. I am typing this from an Atom netbook and believe me, this is something which you won't want on your desktop. I think you can get a good AMD processor + Motherboard + RAM combo at much cheaper rate than Atom rates.

Thanks xyz2000 for the rates. But the performance of Atom seems to be much lower compared to even my 8 year old desktop. But I think it gives around 6 hours of battery life for my Netbook. I have several tabs open (50 +) across Chrome and FF. But I cannot use both at the same time. It takes minutes to even switch between tabs not to mention with browsers. That is why I thought of warning him about the performance.

If you are looking for an HTPC or desktop for normal usage atoms sucks. Better go for AMD E-350 I personally have GA-E350N-USB3 combo it is fast and able to play 1080p videos seamlessly.But if you are looking to build a normal 24*7 client go for atom option.

So, which motherboard goes better/well compatible with AMD processors? Asus, MSI, or, corsair?

..and... Can an AMD dual core processor support a external nVDIA/ATI graphics card?
