In the benchmarks I've seen, most games have the same FPS if you were to use the 6670 without Crossfiring with the APU. I would recommend getting the Intel G860 with the Radeon HD 6850. It will cost about the same, but perform a lot better.

Is G680 same as i3 for games? Or i will be better with phenom ii x4?

The Pentium G860 is roughly equivalent to the Phenom II X4 at stock speeds, without overclocking. It'd be a solid choice on the Intel side, but if you wanted AMD, I think they may have the upper hand sub-$100.

The Phenom II X6 Six Core is only 90 bucks at microcenter, so if you want AMD, that'd also be solid. Honestly, I'd go with the AMD 6 core over a Pentium, but that's just me.

The G680 is better for it's price, though. You'll be able to get a better graphics card.

For gaming, the high end Pentium dual cores are equal to the i3's. The only difference is pure clock speed since games don't hyperthread well.

and I will echo what others have said, the A10 does not seem to benefit from dual graphics crossfire. I thik the onboard GPU is more powerful than the supported cards that get paired with it, so you end up getting bottle necked by the 6670.

A10 is a good budget gamer if you aren't going to get a card at all. Otherwise, I'd get a Pentium G860 (under $70 at amazon) and the best video card you can afford to pair it with. IMO, the best bang for buck right now is the XFX 7850 1GB which is $150 after rebate on Newegg. It's a good 50% faster than the 6850 and 75% faster than the 7770 for only an extra $20-30. Money well spent, IMO.
