Alright so bang for buck minecraft build with mouse and keyboard. Also it needs to run at 1080p 60 fps constant. Budget: 450euro.
Can you complete this challenge

Assumption: You will be buying from UK and €450=£330
The A10 uses system memory as VRAM. So VRAM bandwidth is directly related to system memory interleave and clock speeds. With a single channel of 1333MT/s memory, the A10 will be bottle-necked to less than half of its potential render throughput and/or performance in gaming.
Thanks for these comments. Learning on the job.
What would be the best RAM setup in this situation and can you recommend any further reading on this subject please?
Getting the best possible performance from an A10 APU requires 2133-2400MT/s memory in dual channel, dual rank per channel configuration.
Ideally, the best way to accomplish this is on a budget is by overclocking a 2x4 kit of crucial ballistix sport (they are firstname.lastname@example.orgV, but will do 2133 speeds with about 1.7V, and this is one of the few 2X4GB kits on the market made with a dual rank component configuration.
Overclocking RAM requires a fair bit of expertise to manually configure timings that are likely to work. So the next best way to accomplish this is with a kit that has an XMP profile at 2133MT. These cost more, and not all of them are dual rank.
How good is this for mc
Looks like you need to increase the RAM speed to get the best from the APU
Are them gpu\cpus good
I haven't owned one, so I don't honestly know.
Here are some reviews:
Could I suggest asking on a Minecraft Forum?
I have experience with both the A10-7850K and A10-6800K. Both are very good for what they are and can indeed play most games reasonably well, just at reduced visual quality settings. For minecraft these APU's work fine but don't expect to be running hefty shader and texture pack mods.
Still bottle-necking that iGPU badly here with no channel interleave.
