Okay so i am typing this on my a8-5600k pc running idle at <25C and prime95 at 61C.

Specs:
AMD A8-5600k APU
Asrock fm2a75m-dgs
Kingston hyperx 1866ghz 4gb (1 stick, buying second one shortly)
Coolermaster b500 500 watt PSU

I am thinking of buying a:
MSI R7790-2GD5/OC GPU

I know i might have bottlenek issue, i am fine with that because i might upgrade my mobo and apu to a better cpu and better mobo.

I REALLY want to play Watchdogs, here are the minimum specs and my specs from chttp://www.systemrequirementslab.com/cyri/:

I will be buying ram and gpu so will this cut it?

I can also overclock my apu to 4.4 ghz with AMD overdrive...

Thanks alot!!

I don't think your APU will be particularly a bottleneck for that graphics card. It will run Watchdogs fine. Maybe not on the highest settings, but it will run fine.

You're welcome :) 

Looking at the minimum specs it looks like Watchdogs needs a quad core processor - which you have, but doesn't really care what quad core. The Q8400 listed was released, ohh, about 5 years ago. It's very slow by modern standards (older architecture and only runs at something like 2.5Ghz). if that will run it, your chip will run it fine.
