I want to build a budget gaming pc for:
CS:GO
Battlefield 3/4

I'm planning to buy the A10 to play CS:GO with more than @ 60 fps...
and after that ,when I have the money I'll buy an r9 270/ HD 7870...

So my question would by: Will the A10 with it's intergrated AMD Radeon HD 7660D gpu be able to play CS:GO with 60+ fps high settings in 1080p?

Or should I rather wait 'till I can get the FX 6300 and one of the discrete cards mentioned above?

and one last thing... If the A10 will run CS:GO at the desired settings and I buy it right now ,
will the A10 be a big drawback ,when finally buying the discrete card and wanting to play BF 3/4 compared to the FX 6300?

AMD's APUs are good for lower end gaming, I cannot tell you how well and at what FPS it will run CSGO at, though.

If you have any desire to run a discrete card, it's never a good idea to get an APU, as the APU is weaker than a normal CPU, and the whole point of getting an APU is to satisify any need that wouldn't require a discrete GPU.

Honestly I would wait until the next A10 arrives shortly this month with better GPU/CPU performance. It has the newest AMD architecture "Steamroller" while the AM3+ socket is pretty much done. With an FM2+ mobo you'll also get at least another upgrade possibility next year.

Thanks for the replyes!

Anyways...Can I expect a cheap but good CPU for the fm2+ socket in 2014 like the X4 750k ,but with L3 cache?

Anyone has any information on the lineup from AMD for 2014?

maybe we can get like a steamroller (or even newer) architecture based "750k" (sinonime for cheap but good gaming CPU for me..lol) with L3 cache...

I have the fx 6300 and a radeon 7770 ghz edition and play cs go maxed out at an easy 60fps on 40 player servers, if u do 20 players it's always over 100 fps.

This rig also runs bf3 and bf4 on @ max/high settings.
