The A6 is an apu or cpu/gpu combo solution. You can hybrid crossfire it and up to a 6670 iirc.

The APU build is fine. However, for something a little more oriented towards mainstream gaming, this is worth considering...

CPU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819103911

MOBO - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157280

MEMORY - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231277

CASE - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16811119256

CARD - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814150602

PSU - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139026

Total - 524$ (including 125$ for the monitor)

The CPU is plenty and you can always upgrade it later.

True, but the inbuilt GPU isn't powerful enough to pull off the more recent games at higher resolutions. As far as the CPU goes, it can always be upgraded to future am3+ chips, thanks to the board. The APU build is fine as well. It all boils down to the OP's personal preference.

no (BASIC) rig will play todays games on high resolutions even the card in your build is a 128 bit same as the built in gpu of a A6 but by adding 1 card to the A6 you have something that will play todays games at resolutions then the card you have in your build for less money and under budget
