    Default First rig suggestions

    OK so I am looking to build my first rig. It will be used mostly to act as a plex server so that I can take that load off of my Mac that I use daily. However, I would also like to do some light gaming (Dirt 3, iRacing, Battlefield 4). I would also be using it for some video and photo editing (Premiere Pro, After Effects, Photoshop). I think I am going to go with an AMD build simply because I believe I can get more for my money. I am currently debating whether to go with an APU or FX series CPU build. I am interested in which one would overall complete my tasks better. Also, I would eventually add a graphics card to the a10 build to run in crossfire. Here are my two current builds that I threw together:

    The FX Build:

    The APU Build:

    Note: I do not need a hard drive or OS
