Ive been having some real trouble lately deciding on what cpu/gpu combo to use.
At first I was looking at the a10 5800k for the price/performance.
Then I was looking at the a10 6800k because its next gen and being released soon -
next I realized i'd want more processing power since i'd be doing low to mid end video editing (sony vegas) - not just gaming.
I ultimately decided on the i5, 2nd or 3rd generation (doesnt matter) (OC' able or not), which of course was a huge increase in my budget, forcing me to wait longer (paychecks) for more money to afford this High end cpu + decent gpu.
My top choices right now:
-Fx 6300 + HD 6850 + micro atx + 8gb 1600mhz ram: $340 (in budget)
-i5 2500(or other) + HD 6850 + micro atx + 8gb 1600mhz ram: $415 (out of budget, longer delay on build)
With a radeon 6850 the 6300 would be enough (it would be similar to my setup with a 1090t and I am videocard limited), however it does the depend on the games you want to play. The 6300+radeon hd6850 gets my vote.
