Don't get an APU, I have an A10-5800k in my backup rig and it's nowhere near as good as the FX-6350 is. Again, I'd strongly recommend you don't get an APU, they're pointless anyway when you're buying a dedicated GPU.

I have never liked AMD for gaming, I do use them as a work/office mules... but that's just me.

On the other hand, I suggested an Asus GTX660 2GBs for 180 but you rather spend 220 for the same spec video card... what am I missing here?

I'm sorry I missed that post the asus one has more graphics memory and is cheaper so I think I will go with that
