    The A10-5800k was designed for low end gaming systems. The A10-6800k is trying to do more, but still on the same class as a i3. Considering that no one has a A10-6800k yet, but we know how the 5800k is, why would somoeone buy one for a system with 2x7950? Doesn't make sense.

    If you want to game get a fx-xxxx and overclock it or a i5; those will not bottleneck any rig.
  2. yes... by a lot.. idk why you would mix a cheap apu with crossfire 7950's but its a huge waste of money. get an i5 for gaming and youll be set

    either get the 8350, or an i5. with dual 7950's, an i3 priced amd chip (6300) will bottleneck considerably in games that only utilize 1 or 2 cores. and youll still lose frame rates on games that use all 6 cores
  6. You guy's that think an i5 is better the 6800k should try again cause you are wrong mine has never bottlenecked and I play Battlefield 4 on ultra settings

  8. Definitely trolling. i5 is much faster and will give higher fps.
