The i5 is far better than the A10 for gaming so I would go with the 2nd option. But if you don't want to spend a lot of money, get an FX-6300 ($110), AM3+ motherboard, and a 760.

No the a10 isn't bad for the price for a super low budget gaming or just an everyday computer but for a mid range gaming PC it is horrible especially for the money. The reason is it pairs a low end CPU with really good integrated graphics making it great if there is no dedicated GPU involved. The 6300 is worlds better for less money
