Budget Build AMD A10 Integrated Graphics

How will this build do? http://pcpartpicker.com/user/HammerGames/saved/gkkbt6

Trying to build a budget system for running a few games at 30+ FPS at medium settings. What kind of performance would I get in like BF4, AC, or something like that?

http://pcpartpicker.com/p/sQHZrH It will run BF4 at 60FPS on medium at 720P if you overclock the ram speed and make sure the motherboard is kaveri compatible out of the box but it will not run unity at all, its a horribly optimized game. I would also get a mirco case instead of mini because it will allow you to overclock and make your build last longer if you have to

Ok, thanks!

Is there a difference between the 4.1 GHz AMD A10 and the 3.4 GHz one that you had?

The cpu is better and it has better graphics. Clock speed isn't everything.

Alright, yeah I know I just figured since the number is higher (7800 vs 7700) and there's a higher clock speed the 7800k was better.

Edit: Nevermind, the original was 6800k lol. My bad

If you're able to drop an extra $15 on it then you'll do better with this. The 7850k does well at 720p, added suitable motherboard. APU's are totally reliant on fast memory, added the fastest the motherboard can handle.
