    I know very little about hardware so is there a big difference between a APU and a CPU.

    Thanks

    The apu is amd's version of a cpu with integrated video. It is generally for a basic build ie office apps, email, etc. It is not for a gaming build; for a gaming build, you would use one of the FX line of cpus.
