no..
because you can't slap an amd processor to intel motherboard..
different socket..

Like Quaddro said, wrong socket. You need a motherboard with an AMD FM2 socket to use that processor. That board has an Intel LGA1150 socket for use with newer Haswell Intel CPUs.

No that's for Haswell/Intel products only....certain motherboards have different sockets that can transfer the different architectures data accordingly.
That Mobo's socket is 1150 and the A-series has an FM 2 socket.

Whoa that was quick. So what motherboard can you suggest for my A10 which is cheap, has USB 3.0, and maybe support dual-graphics?

Thats fairly easy and can do one better a88x chipset fm2 plus board

this supports a10 apu fm2 and will allow for upgrade path to kaveri later on if you so choose do not buy just a fm2 board as this will not allow you to upgrade to a new processor later on

cheapest board i could find with fm2 plus

also just to comfirm your using fm2 whats the full name of the processor as there is a fm1 a10 so im just comfirming this will work for you.

also to get the most out of your chip a10 make sure your ram is

1866mhz lower ram speeds will hinder performance

this is good mobo, considered as high end for APU class..

the cheapest that i can for you..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

along with this memory

or this gskill sniper memory..
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

well, this is will be a sweet combo for apu processor..
because APU graphic is depending to system ram,you'll need fastest ram to extract real performance of this integrated gpu..

My APU is AMD 10-5800k and my MOBO is msi fm2-A55m-e33 so it might be fm2

well, you already have a mobo..

don't buy another mobo..

save your money to build a real gaming system..with a real gaming processor and discrete graphic card..not APU..

Yeah. Upon looking the prices I thought I'll just get the MSI Z87-G45 Gaming when I have the budget to get Intel i5. But once I have some components I need and it can run new games with my desired settings, I see no point in upgrading again until my system needs it. Well at least I have future references and got some knowledge.

Thanks Guys!
