I want to buy the APU option because it has the nicest hardware but don't know if the APU will bottle neck the 7870. So if you answer can you tell me which one of these builds will perform the best with a 7870 when i get one. Also will the APU be able to play ARMA 2 on low settings 720p. I bought Operation Arrowhead during the sell. If you have a better system that will be less than $514 please say so and give me the specs. Thank you for your help. PS. Which one of the sockets if the most future proof? (Please answer!)
