Point taken. Don't take this the wrong way, because I appreciate your input, but this computer is being built as a hedge against the new tech being released within the next year. This is a temporary solution that will allow me to do what I need to do on my computer after I sell my laptop including playing games at playable graphics. I am not trying to blow anything out of the water. If down the road I feel that my integrated graphics just isn't cutting it and there still is no reason to upgrade the CPU I can always put a dedicated GPU inside my APU build and achieve the same results. I am trying to cut out the GPU because when I upgrade within the next year I will be purchasing top-of-the-line everything. And from all the reviews I have read this APU performs beyond most people's expectations in terms of gaming.
