AMD A6 5400K + Radeon HD6450 vs. AMD A10 5800K

Hey everyone, I'm new here so if I haven't started this properly I'm very sorry.

I'm going to build a budget PC for a friend, who wants to use it for entry to mid level gaming. Naturally, I figured I would buy one of AMD's famous APUs. But I find myself in this predicament and I don't know which hardware would bring more power.

Facing off in a shopping cart deathmatch is the solo AMD A10-5800K (http://www.amazon.com/AMD-A10-5800K-3-8Ghz-Processor-AD580KWOHJBOX/dp/B0095VP8D4/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1392770010&sr=8-1&keywords=apu+a10-5800k) against the duo of the AMD A6-5400K (http://www.amazon.com/AMD-A6-5400K-3-6Ghz-Processor-AD540KOKHJBOX/dp/B0095VPBFY/ref=sr_1_2?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1392771026&sr=1-2&keywords=apu) with the Asus Radeon HD6450 (http://www.amazon.com/Asus-Radeon-Silence-Profile-PCI-Express/dp/B004X8EO6Q/ref=sr_1_1?s=pc&ie=UTF8&qid=1392770802&sr=1-1&keywords=radeon+6570) using AMD's "dual graphics technology". Which one wins?

    Thanks, that was exactly what I was looking for. (Wow that was fast!) I think I'll go with the duo because I doubt my friend would do any upgrading himself in the relatively new future.
