A10 5800k paired with 7950

What should my brother's expectations be? 720p with eye candy turned on at 60fps?

At 720P a 7950 is overkill.

His max will be 1080p. What I'm asking what should he be expecting with that CPU and gpu pair.

Expect good performance in any game that's not too heavy on the CPU, because those APUs are not the best.

Should I tell him to just switch to an AM3 board with fx 8320 black edition?

1080p, but with CPU bottlenecks in quite a few games (can get same/similar FPS on low as you would on high)

If he doesn't have the processor yet avoid the APU if he's using a dedicated GPU. Almost anything would be better, be it an 8320/50 or a lower end i5. Even just a 6350 would be a big improvement.

Most of what you are paying for in an APU is the integrated GPU. If you aren't using that, switch to another processor.
