    Thats what I meant DDD. The 2600K out preforms the 8350 in gaming. Check the link above.

    The IGP along with the descreet card would give you a gaming setup, how good obviously depends on your screen res and the game, I would suggest at something like 1080p with overclocked CPU and GPU's you may be able to play BF3 on low to medium (but with most "pretty's off), I stress that is a guess, I am kind of comparing the performance of the 2 with a HD5850 at best (guesswork on my part).... here is a good piece and as mentioned before..... it recommends faster ram. read the whole lot, your questions will be answered.

    Thanks for that link there, Brandon. very useful. Back to the original post, here is comparison between the i5-2500K and the A10-5800K: http://www.anandtech.com/bench/Product/288?vs=675

    There are game benchmarks at the bottom. So have a think about it, Amp; see what suits you. Throw together a who build and price it, then see what you think is worth getting. Maybe the A10 and an SSD would offer you better all-round performance, or maybe you prefer to have more CPU grunt? Or maybe you could squeeze in SSD with the i5. It all comes down to how much you want to spend, what you want to do with the rig, and what's available at the time. Either way, I don't think you'll be disappointed. Maybe you could put a list together of the the total system, if you would like to, so we can see it?

    well, i'll be damned. the 5800k plays almost all the games at playable framerates!

    true, but if you look into real world application, i.e. gaming benches, the 5800K plays most games in highQ at 40+ fps!

    Thanks, DDD. Fixed. I'm TPU'ing using the full desktop site on a mobile phone, so not the cleanest method to be posting lol. Manual posting of URLs and autocorrect.

    Edit: I think it's fixed now.

    40FPS is horrible if you think about it. Once you have play 60FPS+ you never see gaming the same.

    Serious gamers will not go for this anyway and for the rest of us 40+ FPS should be considered good.

    A Radeon 7660D xfired with a HD 6670 should perform anywhere near the HD 7750/6770, and the prices of both are considerably lower than 150$.

    Thanks guys. I read through your responses and looked through a lot of benchmarks and what I ended up ordering with might surprise you:

    1. AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz $85 and COOLER MASTER V8 $48
    2. ASRock 970 EXTREME3 $85
    3. XFX Double D FX-785A-CDFC Radeon HD 7850 2GB $180
    4. Thermaltake TR2 TR-700 700 Watt PSU $80
    5. Kingston HyperX Black 16GB (2x8) $70
    6. Western Digital WD VelociRaptor 10000 RPM 300MB $70

    At $85 for the old phenom processors, I figured it couldn't be beat when these have been proven to overclock very well and in many of the benchmarks I was looking at they perform about the same as the A10 Trinity or the I3, in some cases better.

    I am going to wait for SSD's to come down in price/increase in storage and then switch to an SSD for my windows drive in 6 months to a year, and use the raptor as my secondary drive.
