i5-4670k over A10-6800, worth +$100?

For a pcsx2 and Dolphin machine >.>

And can I get away with a HD4600 if all I play on the PC are TBS?

Since you are into emulation, absolutely.

The 4670K. But you won't be able to upscale very well with the HD 4600.

Oh? I thought you needed CPU based rendering for graphics fidelity, i.e. it won't use the GPU.

How about adding a 7850 to the mix then? Or does it change the economics because the A10-6800 can scale by itself?

You can't get away with not using the GPU for most PC games.
Go with the 4670k and 7850.

If you are serious about emulating newer systems then get an i5 + dedicated graphics.

There isn't much else to say. You aren't going to get far with only the i5, and you aren't going to get smooth gameplay with an APU + dedicated card. If that's what you really want to do then save up some money.

Intel simply produces far more efficient CPU's atm. Intel all da way boss.

If you can you should ditch the wireless card and just go wired, then add a Hyper 212 to your build so you can overclock.

Once we perfect building Mechs, I expect there to be a factory in Mexico pumping out a brand call Mechsican. I wanna buy me a Mechsican.
