So, I'm going to benchmark a lower powered AMD APU. What are some games/programs budget users might use that would be a good representation of this chip, and future similar chips in the sub $100 range?

I hear alot of people droning about playing Farmville and other facebook games

People with older computers play it, even though it lags, you could try to sell it as a replacement computer

"It's not a supercomputer, but it's cheap and it does what you need

quickly"

is exactly what non-saavy people want to hear

Two good options

newer, low-resource games, like CS:GO, and popular MMOs
