The performance of the a10's gpu is pretty lowly to start with and the huge advantage intel enjoys in x86 performance will more than likely make up for this, Especially in CPU- dependant games, as we can see in the crysis benchmark. It purely depends what you're looking for though as well. If you'll be throwing other stuff at the PC than games, then the i3-3220 enjoys a very healthy lead over pretty much all AMDs APUs and CPUs.

this reminds me when OC was really hardware driven (and not via bios values) .... move a jumper, shunt 2 tracks dirrectly on the mobo's pcb, etc ....
Now it more, when allowed by the bios :
- 1 : Make sure the cooling is enough
- 2 : Find the good values for stable operations
Cable sleeving is more fun than OC nowadays
