I am undecided between the AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz or the Phenom X4 965 BE.

Questions are:

On the AMD A10, outfitted within the chip the AMD Radeon HD 7660D;

If I later decide to upgrade to a GTX 480 with the same APU and same motherboard, would this be possible?

Any compability issues?

With the Phenom x4 965 BE I was thinking of going directly with the discrete video card (GTX480), however I am weighing my options

at this time.

What are your guy's opinions in terms of performance and costs? Which set up is better in the long term aswell?

The Phenom II is a faster CPU (by a very slim margin) so using a discrete card it will be the better option.
