Pros:

High Base Clock
Inexpensive
Quad Core

Cons:

High heat
Instability (See other thoughts)
Wont pair with a 6970 for Xfire

Other Thoughts:

I paired this APU with a GIGABYTE GA-F2A88X-D3H. Initial system setup proved to be rather worrisome with the first boot into windows. The numbers are misleading. 4.4Ghz sounds nice, but if its unstable, its useless. AMD has a hidden gem with this APU though. When the Turbo is disabled, along with the IGP, and underclocked to 4.0Ghz something magical happens. Votlages become more stable (0.30v fluctuations at stock settings, 0.14v underclocked) and your RAM can do its job better.
Temps on this thing are out of control. With a H60 on this guy, at stock speeds under Prime95 it would peak at 82c(!!!). After underclocking, max came down to 75c. Still way too high for a CPU to be, but what are you gonna do.

This is a great "Entry Level" chip for someone wanting to build a budget gaming rig and they have access to say an NVidia 560TI, or HD 6970.

My rig:
GIGABYTE GA-F2A88X-D3H
A-10 6800k APU Under Clocked @ 4.0Ghz (Stock voltages and FSB)
Corsair H60 AIO Liquid Cooler
16Gig Corsair Vengeance 1600Mhz DDR3
1TB Seagate Barracuda 7200 RPM HDD (Storage)
120Gig Intel 520 Series "Cherryvile" SSD
Corsair GS600 PSU
Fractal Designs "Define R4 Silent" in Black Pearl
2x Xigmatech 120mm Purple LED fans
2x Fractal Designs 140mm fans (Stockers, in front for intake)
