I have the opportunity to pick up an new AMD APU at quite a good price. I am however somewhat of two minds as to which to choose. Heatsink will likely be a Mini Ninja as I have a NIB one on the shelf.

A10-5800K - 3.8GHz CPU, 800MHz GPU, 100W TDP

or

A10-5700 - 3.4GHz CPU, 760MHz GPU, 65W TDP

The old tradeoff - power vs performance. :?

Opinions welcome.

TDP is a limit.

It depends on what you're going to do with it, but unless you let the APU run at full load for hours, I don't think you'd notice the difference in power consumption.

You can always lower the clock speed in the 5800K, but you can never unlock the locked 5700.
