    Looks like I might go for the A10 quite happily for now.

    Could sell my laptop after for a much more decent graphics card.

    I might go with an FX10 or something since semi decent processor with okay inbuilt graphics gives me a while to save for an nvidia graphics chip then.
    There is no FX10 and there aren't any FX processors with built in GPU - that's expected to come with SteamRoller - but if SA is to be believed then they've been pushed back to 2014.

    Phoronix did a review although it was all server stuff IIIRC.

    Now stock is coming through you'd be mad to go i3 anyway as the FX6300 eats it alive.

    Could even look around for a GTX460 around that price - might struggle to find new though.

    The card is more expensive but it is more than twice as good I would say. Plus, if you drop to an i3 which is more than adequate for those games, you would have a very well balanced system.

    In that case you're going to have to go with an A10 build instead.

    How are AMD's Linux drivers now?

    Bargain at that price really.

    If not try second hand
