Great CPU and GPU

AMD A10-7700K - A10-Series Kaveri Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AMD Radeon R7 Desktop Processor - AD770KXBJABOX
AMD A10-7700K - A10-Series Kaveri Quad-Core 3.4 GHz Socket FM2+ 95W AMD Radeon R7 Desktop Processor - AD770KXBJABOX

Pros: Fast and cheap, and the APU aspect really flys when you add in a discrete GPU. Little known fact about the APU is that you can Crossfire it to a R7 Card of type. Doesn't bog down easily, and for a Quad core at the price it is quite astounding. It also runs cool, even a cheap heatsink like a CoolerMaster T2. No more than 130 degrees Fahrenheit under full load.

Cons: The heatsink included, to be 100% honest, is terrable. I would, without doubt, to buy an aftermarket heatsink.

Preformance Boost For APUs

GIGABYTE Ultra Durable 2 Series Radeon R7 240 2GB DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 x8 ATX Video Card GV-R724OC-2GI REV2.0

Pros: Cheap, runs cool, quiet and small. Good for basic work above standard graphics though.

Cons: Preformance isn't that great unless paired with an APU's GPU. Good for basic work above standard graphics though.

Overall Review: Works with AMD dual graphics.

Great Cheap FM2+ Motherboard

ASRock FM2A78M-HD+ R2.0 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 FCH (Bolton-D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard
ASRock FM2A78M-HD+ R2.0 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A78 FCH (Bolton-D3) SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 HDMI Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

Pros: Good amount of ports, Small size, good build quality, Bios is easy to use. Fan control is OK.

Cons: Could use an extra 2 PWM fan ports, 2 extra other than the CPU is OK, but it could use more.
