Hi I'm going to build a PC as my current one is seriously outdated and after a lot of thinking I decided to go with an AMD based system, and I have decided to go with the AMD A10 6800K Black Edition APU alongside the XFX Radeon HD 7750 GHOST THERMAL AMD Graphics Card - 1GB. Will this work? If so what Motherboard should i go for?

Thanks in advance.

Don't buy an APU if you are buying a GPU. Get a less expensive and faster FX 6300 and use money saved towards a better GPU.

I heard that if you have the dual graphics it will perform a lot better than higher price Intel Systems?

If you want a $400 or less build then get a APU, otherwise, a CPU+GPU will outperform it in every possible way.

A10 + 7750 = huge waste of money.

FX 6300 and an HD 7770 or 7790 would be far superior to an A10 and 7750.

So what i'm getting is a majority telling me to buy a CPU and a GPU and not bother with the APU? If so what Processor? I know that the New AMD socket is FM2 and that supports AMD's new APU's, but to choose a CPU from AMD I would have to buy a Motherboard that supports Am+3? And a CPU from the FX Series ?

FM2 is for APU's. AM3+ is for the faster FX line.

Ok Thank you everyone for the help now I can go and find a good motherboard.. :D  (I take it the XFX Radeon HD 7750 GHOST THERMAL AMD Graphics Card - 1GB isn't the best choice?)

HD 7750 is at the low end of GPU's.
