How would this A10 setup compare to my current rig in the signature?

Anyone running Linux/OSX on an A10?

I think your 460 GTX would annihilate the IGP - you'd be better suited to an Intel build and still use your GPU - faster CPU then.

Really? It's running at stock too, i've never bothered to overclock it.

I need to save for an i5 2500k then..
