Confusion on People playing graphic intensive games with APU or even in dual graphics mode

I've always wanting to have APU such as this 2: A10-5800K and A8-5600K.
Although I've post so many times at many categories in this forum.
I've grown to have more and more confusion.
They say that this APU can't play smoothly. mostly in crysis series.
But how about the videos i've seen?

here is an example:
(Crysis 3 High Settings | AMD A8 5600K + HD6670 GDDR5 Dual Graphics )
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VDSPirbAZ3s

I just want many people to clarify me about what am I thinking now.
I've been posting for atleast 3 or more days to learn if my build is enough for graphics intensive games. and I'am on the budget so the more I get confused the longer I have to think about getting a PC. and the prices here in the philippines will just make you throw yourself out in the window with tears and a matching poker face.

my status now? this is :Fou:

    Damn, my life here is so messed up. :fou: sucks to be me.
    How about giving me a build of FX4100 for gaming?
  7. forget about fx 4100 get i3 + gtx 650ti would be best and handle games upto 1600*900res at high settings

    make sure you get gtx 650ti not normal gtx 650 as ti one is way faster than gtx 650.

    your build is good
