If gaming is the sole purpose, better choose g3420.

Because AMD APU's are really not meant for gaming at all.
For example, using R7 240 with intel will be considered to have more performance in gaming than R7 240 with AMD APU.

It's pretty obvious that g3420's power consumption much lower than a10 7850K.

a10 has 12 compute cores and hence it needs more power.

But g3420's single core performance is very high when compared to a10. The high end pc games need the single core performance to be as high as possible.

So, g3420 wins!
