    Well, I finally decided to get the following: A10-6800K!
    AMD A10-6800K Richland 4.1GHz (4.4GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD 8670D - Newegg.com

    And this: ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev. 2, CPU Cooler - Intel & AMD, Multi-Directional Mount, 92mm PWM Fan
    ARCTIC Freezer 7 Pro Rev.2 with 92mm PWM Fan - Newegg.com

    All of it I can get next month(March) and it's right within my budget!

    Thanks for the tip
    Jeff
    All right, better graphics than that 210, also 4 real cores. If you want to get better GPU performance you can always go to faster RAM (DDR3- 2133 MHz.) which helps graphics a lot.
    I have a nice graphic card so I really don't need to improve on the GPU.

    But that APU graphic is better than 210, you can also allocate more memory to it, with 210 you are stuck with whatever is on it (probably only 512MB). Not only that but 210 has only DDR2 while with APU you can use several times faster DDR3.

    Ok.. now I get it. I'll look into how to access that.
    Again, thanks for all the help.
