What can I do with this bundle?
Our bronze grade Afterburn motherboard bundle gives you a good starting platform for building your first desktop PC, which can also be used as an entry-level gaming PC. It includes an AMD A6-6400k 3.9GHz APU, ASUS’s A68HM-PLUS M-ATX motherboard and a 4GB Corsair XMS3 RAM module. All you’ll need to add on top of this to get a system going is a power supply, hard drive or SSD, operating system, graphics card and a case to house it all.

How good is the processor?
At the core of this bundle is an AMD dual-core A6-6400k APU which has a base speed of 3.9GHz and a turbo speed of 4.2GHz. It’s two cores give you wonderful entertainment experience at a great price. As this is an APU (Accelerated Processing Unit), you get a mix of a traditional CPU with a graphics process unit (GPU) – with this GPU being a Radeon HD 8470D. AMD Turbo Core technology optimises both the CPU and GPU that is located within the APU in the most demanding applications, providing that extra speed when needed.

What makes this motherboard different?
ASUS’s A68HM-PLUS motherboard is a small and compact micro ATX (M-ATX) board that can be installed into builds that use mini tower cases or larger. It is perfect for anyone looking for a basic motherboard to build an entry level gaming PC. The motherboard has been built with ASUS 5X Protection – which offers various hardware safeguards such as protection from over current and short circuit due to electrostatic discharge. Additionally, high quality components are used, increasing long-term system reliability and performance. Intuitive ASUS UEFI BIOS and AI Suite 3 make it easy to see and adjust settings, so you can make the PC your own.

How much memory is supplied?
This bundle is equipped with a 4GB Corsair DDR4 memory stick (RAM module), which runs at 2133Mz. Utilising the 4GB of RAM, multiple programs can be run simultaneously – allowing for quick access to files that are temporarily stored. Since only one DIMM slot is used, you’ll have one other slot free for future upgrades.
