Cons: The picture fooled me into thinking that it has two DVI-I connections, so if it failed to work right in Dual Graphics I could just use it on another computer that has two 2048 x 1536 monitors. The picture is wrong; one DVI-I and one DVI-D connection. Although XFX's website states "AMD Dual Graphics Ready" I couldn't get it to work in dual graphics mode with an A10-7850K.
Pros: cost. If you don't ever intend to buy a good video card, this might be a reasonable setup. WEI is 74,74,67,67,79, without a video card.
Cons: "Top of the line" FM2 socket and it runs much like a couple of my much older AM3 chips, a little slower than the X6 1090T; a little better than the X4 965. My attempt at "Dual Graphics" failed. I bought an R7-260x, rather than the recommended R7-250 and it seems the 260 doesn't work in dual graphics mode.
Other Thoughts: the processor cost of a complete build isn't a huge part of the total cost - so I have that "could've bought a V8" feeling (i7-4790K)
