I want to RECORD gameplay on a new PC, and I was wondering if an AMD APU could play all CALL OF DUTY's at MAX settings at 1152 x 864 resolution with at least 24 frames per second MINIMUM. If so, which APU should I get, the A4, A6, A8, or the new A10? Thanks :)

An A8 should be able to play games no problem at that resolution :) 

Depending on the price, you may want to go with the A10 for the beefier GPU.

The CoD engine is quite light and your resolution quite low so I'd agree, yes it's fine.

Yes it should be fine for Call of Duty. Are you using the integrated graphics or discrete graphics card?

Integrated. But I'm not sure which one to choose - the A4, A6, A8, or A10?

A8 or A10, the others are too weak for gaming.

Yeah get a A10 since you wan't to RECORD gameplay too. Recording takes away about 10-15 fps too.

Also you may have to turn down the anti-aliasing a bit just to make the gameplay feel smoother

The A8-3870K 3.0ghz $99 shipped after promo code. Get an aftermarket cooler and go to town OC'ing it.

Depending on the resolution you are playing at I wouldn't expect to get good FPS on ultra high settings on high resolution with just the integrated graphics. While the APU has better integrated graphics than Intel it's still integrated graphics and you are still better off with an discrete video card for better performance. If you are going to go with an APU go with an A8 or A-10.

With the OP's resolution @ 1152x864 he should be able to play on high, maybe Ultra (without AA) settings without any hiccups. The problem is the recording, how much of a drain on his system is that going to cause?
