Edit; What about that new R7 265?
would like to buy an aftermarket cooler if I get the cost lower.. so ill keep the gpu and maybe ho for the amd processor

back on topic, i have amd a6-6400k apu ("dual core") (richland 2nd gen apu) and a dedicated gpu, and i can say that the cpu bottlenecks and causes stuterring in bf4, so i have to close as many other programs as i can. overclocking to 4.3ghz reduced amount of stuttering but it is still not as good as i want it to be. so if you want to go with apu, try to buy the quad core higher end ones

The reason why I choose Intel over AMD. I don't think the i3 would bottleneck

The 750k and 760k are higher end APUs (A10 I think) without the GPU on them. That makes them cheap and they actually out-perform the FX series chips of the same price.

An i3 won't be a bottleneck, but will be slightly more expensive. I'm an Intel user myself, but in the low-end/ budget segment AMD is usually the way to go imo.

760k and 750k almost score twice as better than my a6-6400k in benchmarks.
