    That was kinda my point. I seriously doubt there will be any visual differences with a 7850 with either platform thus I look to overall performance.

    Actually , I got Pretty Close to $400. I Live in Massachusetts(Microcenter in Cambridge)
    , and If I get the CPU , and MoBo there , I'll save a few Buck's on the Combo, Then RAM and GPU Via, Newegg.
    I Own MANY Spare PC part's , and Happen to have a PSU kicking around. It's an Older powerstream , Made by topower. They Held up okay, unlike Some of the Modstream ones.
    But , thank You though,

    So the 7850 will NOT outperform Your AMD selection?

    I DID NOT know that, I will be taking another look @ your suggestion.

    This thing IS nice.
    AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket...

    Well for a half decent piledriver system with a 7850 I think $417 aint bad lol, personally I would rather that than the IvyBridge solution, but thats just me.

    Yeah, I'm looking into that Direction Currently.

    So I Wouldn't Need a Discreet GPU with The AMD platform?? And it would Still perform as Fast as a 7850 in Gaming?

    that A10 is a beast, @ $119.

    It wont be even close,what he means is that you get both the A10 and a 7850 which will cost more and wont be as good for gaming as the i3.
