Which A10 model would you consider? Is it because of price or performance? Both?

Edit: The only A10 model CPU's I can find are the 5700 and 5800k. Both way over the price of the g860.

Probably A10 5800K because it alleviates you from having to get a discrete GPU on a budget build.

I'll consider it. I haven't looked at AMD much, so i'll need to do a little research into the intergrated 7660d vs the 6670 and the temps its going to run.
