I am not sure which one to buy.
I only want this system to play movies, surf the internet, and maybe little gaming for my 3 year old

so is the best choice to go for the A6 as it has far superior graphics?

I will be using a 50" pdp display, playing bluray rips, streaming you tube, playing music.
playing videos, just entertainment stuff. tv, movies, music ...

thank you..

In general, if there is any gaming involved using discrete graphics I normally recommend going with AMD's APU. For all the other things you mentioned either CPU should be fine. However, I am unsure of how well the integrate Intel HD graphic core will handle Blu-Ray movies since they do require a bit of decoding by the graphics cards. The Intel HD is less powerful than the Intel HD 2000.

+1 for the AMD APU. I went A10 in the end.

My needs are similar to your, but I want to game a little bit also.

+1 AMD GPU will kick the G680's HD2000 backside.
