APUs are pretty much the only processors I'll purchase these days, unless I can get a wicked deal on the higher end stuff or Intel CPUs and motherboard.
An unlocked quadcore APU with decent graphics and a decent motherboard, all for sub $150 is an amazing value (FM1). The rest of a budget can goes towards something more useful like an SSD or a better video card. CPU should really be your last concern unless you have a specific reason for it.

That said, FM2 prices are pretty high up right now due to it being just released. The value isn't that great considering it's performance improvement and price over its predecessor.
