Phenom II X4 965BE or A10 5800K

Which one of these would be better in gaming/High Workload situations, forget Intel. The A10 has Integrated graphics but Phenom doesn't but i would use my X1600 for time being anyway, but if i pair the A10 and X1600 i will get higher graphics performance. so Which one is best, also down the line i will get a higher end GPu such as 6xxx or 7xxx series ATI

The 965 uses a Socket AM3 motherboard, while the 5800k needs FM2. They aren't interchangeable.

AMD for gaming? Pfui. ;-)

I use the Phenom II X4 940 BE with a decent GPU. I'm not sure how those dual purpose CPU's with built in GPU will work in conjunction with and existing GPU added to ones system. Not to mention the mobo socket headache as bobkn pointed out. I haven't heard or seen any reviews on the subject.

thing is my budget is wont accompany a discreet graphics card, just the one i use now(x1600 pro) so i could make full use of the graphics on the 5800k as they are 1 of the best intergarted graphics)

pedroc1999,
You kind of paint yourself into a corner the the APU chip but I agree it's the better short term performer for graphics. I've owned the 965be and it's a monster and a another great performer for the monies. If It was me I would 965be and then save for the dedicated GPU upgrade on a FX capable mobo. This would leave you a CPU option for the 8 core down the road and that's what I'm currently running, check out my spec's and pictures.

Does it reverting back means that the overclocking procedure is somewhat unstable or is it just a graphic glitch? Also, how better...
