APU's GPU's and CPU's!?

Hi I'm going to build a PC as my current one is seriously outdated and after a lot of thinking I decided to go with an AMD based system, and I have decided to go with the AMD A10 6800K Black Edition APU alongside the XFX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.

  1. 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.
  2. Before going that route, you may want to read through this article http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/dual-graphics-crossfire-benchmark,3583.html see what you think

    I heard that if you have the dual graphics it will perform a lot better than higher price Intel Systems?
  4. 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.
  6. 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 ?
  7. like mentioned.. fx-6300 + 7850 or more.
  8. FM2 is for APU's. AM3+ is for the faster FX line.
  9. 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?)
  10. HD 7750 is at the low end of GPU's.
