I built this machine this past Thursday and part of Friday. I plan on using it for course work, watching HD movies, and gaming mainly. Honestly it has handled everything I've thrown at it. I play BF3 with medium and high presets averaging around 50 FPS. There is some micro-lag but I'll go into that a little later.
Reasons for Everything:
CPU- I choose this APU knowing that I would be gaming quite a bit. The actual performance difference between this and the A10 was negligible to say the least. The iGPU is great especially when paired with proper RAM and the 6670.
MoBo- This had everything I needed, nothing I didn't. Also it was recommended by Anandtech, no-brainer.
RAM- The APU needs faster RAM to perform optimally, so that's exactly what I got.
GPU- I know this isn't exactly the a high end card, or even mid-ranged for that matter, but it was the highest I could pair with the iGPU and it works pretty well. My only gripe is when this is paired with the iGPU, there is some micro-lag, but I can't really complain at this price.
Wireless adapter- I ended up getting it but not using it, I use a wireless bridge instead, oh well. It will probably come in handy for my next build.
Case- I honestly can't say anything but good things about this case. It is roomy, has front USB3, an SSD cage, etc. This case is awesome for the price and overall commands the market at this price point. Nothing else really compares for this price IMO.
PSU- I ended up getting a CX430m and I'm glad I did. Not having my case overflowing with unused cables really helped me better air-flow quality and with overall cable management.
DVD- Standard. Got the cheapest one I could find.
HDD- I had a 7200rpm F3 laying around, but plan on upgrading to an ssd soon.
Overall I'm very satisfied with this build. It does everything I need it to. My games are running flawlessly and for the price, who can really complain? Yeah the micro-lag is annoying, but at least I'm playing on mostly high settings at 50FPS (If anyone knows how to fix the issue that would be great!).
