The CPU you have selected is actually an APU, a CPU with built in graphics, you won't be using the graphics part of it because you also have a seperate video card.

For the same price you can get an FX chip which is a better CPU, with suitable motherboard and memory.

You'll be able to play games at 1080P with it, medium to high graphic settings I would think.

A FX being better than a FM2 cpu is debatable, the FM2's have slight stronger single core performance but the FX's have higher multithreaded performance as expected.

Maybe my wording was more simplistic than it should have been, I was basing it on the recommended specs for BF4 which seem relevent as the poster wants to play games like COD. They recommend a 6 core AMD CPU.

It's hard to find a review of the 760K, I've never known a product from a company like AMD get so universally ignored. If you've got a link to a good one that would be useful.

Well go with the six core then but Im 99% a four core would work though. If you want a review for the 760K, look at the 6800K reviews and ignore anything about the integrated graphics, they are the exact same CPU its just the 760K lacks the integrated graphics which happens to make it cheape.
