Well, Since the graphics is integrated into your cpu. it means your cpu is overheating to. The only thing you could put in for a processor that would be better is

or
http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113280

Which would also have better integrated graphics, you could also add a 6670 for crossfire. or go with a better gpu all together.

a decent brand 400+ should be ok unless you really feel like putting a high end gpu in. something like the corsair cx430 would work great.

The simplest solution is to install a discrete Radeon HD 7750 graphics card. You shouldn't even need a power supply upgrade using this graphics card model.

It'll remove the integrated graphics processor out of the heat load of the AMD APU altogether.

Hmmm... I thought I answered your question in a different thread...

As stated in the other thread, the best graphics card you can buy is the Radeon HD 7750 for $100. Yes, it is probably not included on EA's website of "officially supported" graphics cards, it will be compatible. The "7700" and "7800" refers to the Radeon HD 77xx and 78xx series graphic cards because the is no such thing as a Radeon HD 7700 or 7800 graphic cards. "7700" refers to the Radeon HD 7750, HD 7770 and the soon to be released HD 7790. "7800" refers to both Radeon HD 7850 and HD 7870 graphic cards.
