I'm uncertain. I more or less randomly preferred the AMD A4-7300 over
the A4-6320, because my favourite dealer sells the A4-7300 for 1.55 EUR
less, than the A4-6320 and I couldn't find good comparisons of CPUs in
this price range.

Video is important, the onboard audio device is completely
uninteresting for me, I'll disable it, because I own several pro-sumer
audio interfaces and a professional PCIe audio interface.

I don't have a little less money.

I don't have bad experiences with cheap PC PSUs, the one I'm using now
most likely is around 10 years old and I even didn't replace a capacitor
or resistor, while most repairs in the last decade I've done were
replacing capacitors in f...ine switching power supplies of audio and
video gear.
