Should I go with an AMD APU like the A-10 when it releases or should I go something like an i3 and a h77? My brother would like this machine to be able to play games (nothing new with cutting edge graphics) for around 2 years. Graphics don't have to be maxed either but obviously the better graphics is better. Also would like as small of form factor as possible.

Thanks in advance!
Looks like the processor is available locally for you. Not a lot of FM2 motherboards out there with the Hudson D4 chipset yet, but the platform looks interesting and would be on my shortlist. Too bad they had to change the socket to FM2, they will lose customers because of that.
