This won't be an extremely powerful machine, but can run Planetside 2 on high settings.

If you increased your budget I'd probably recommend just getting an FX-6300 with a dedicated GPU and not worry about trying to crossfire it with the A10-6800k.

I would recommend this build instead. This would give you better performance than the APU. APU's are not at all powerful for gaming.

The 7750 is way better than the Inbuild graphics of the AMD A10. APU would play games at 1080p low at 30FPS.

The 7750 would play games at 1080p Medium @ 40 FPS. So, this build is better than the APU build.

I would never recommend an APU build, especially since we can not get equally capable CPU's for 80 dollars (Athlon II x4 750k).
