Summary: Was looking to build a media PC for my uncle. He had strict requirements for a PC under $300 and this was the perfect solution. The CPU has no trouble running the regular office and browsing tasks, and the GPU is good enough for the occasional game as well. If you need an entry level gaming machine or a very nice media PC, I would definitely recommend an A10, but I wouldn't recommend it for those building mid to high end gaming machines.
Summary: For around $200 you'll get a midranged PC that can play all of todays titles like Battlefield 4 and many more. This is an awesome GPU! Pros: Plays all my games at max/almost max settings! (with AA and AF off or at 2x) MSI A78M-E35 FM2+ CRUCIAL 4GB DDR3 1600 PNY XLR8 SATA 6Gbps - 120GB SSD AMD A10-6800K with Radeon HD 8670D (gaming on High-Ultra settings on Skyrim, and many other games)
Summary: Its fast and reliable even if you dont like useing integrated graphics you can hook up a graphics card and use that and just use this for the fast processor i love this apu though it runs all the games ive thrown at it so far and hasentmcrashed on me yet but do not use,windiws 8.1 with this as windiws 8.1mdiesent like these integrated graphics ive tryed instaling the drivers to but it should work perfect with windows 7 and windows 8 perfectly
Summary: It is in a mini-ITX with 8gb ram, 2 HDMI ports (onboard), wireless-N, 2tb hard drive, 140mm water cooler. It is running Ubuntu 12.04 LTS. More than sufficient for light gaming, college coursework, video streaming, general browsing.
Pros: The bottom line here is that people are saying that this isn't good enough. Do not believe them. Best investment in a processor I've ever made. I paired this with the ASUS F2A85-M PRO motherboard, 1333mhz G-Skill Ram, the Cooler master Hyper 212 EVO, and a 530w PSU. roughly $368 with discounts. I didn't have to buy RAM, I wanted to test and see how 1333 performed I have higher grade RAM, that does perform better, but with 1333mhz I'm able to play Crysis 3 with custom ...
Cons: I have yet to find anything I am absolutely unsatisfied with.
