I'm building an ultra-cheap PC for a family member and need some help and advice. The PC will be used mainly for web-browsing, light browser-based gaming and playing back HD video to TV via HDMI. I've taken a look at the Intel Celeron G550 and the AMD A4-3300 and they both seem to fit the bill, though I have experience with neither series.
My main question is will the Celeron G550 provide audio over HDMI? My father has a Sandy Bridge laptop and it doesn't, I'm presuming that the A4-3300 will as the 780G/785G chipsets did. Second of all which chip will provide the better user experience? From the data I've seen the G550 wins on the CPU front while the A4-3300 wins on the GPU front.
