Odd, turns out I found two brand new AMD A10-6800K Richland APUs sitting on my desk this morning.  I called AMD to ask what this was all about and they said that if I didn't need them, I might as well give them away to our readers. 

"Oh, and throw in a free copy of the new SimCity while you're at it," they told me.

Who am I to argue?

So let's have a giveaway! 

We are handing out two AMD A10-6800K "Richland" APUs for you to build a brand new PC around and including a key for SimCity with each of them.  If you haven't read Josh's review of the A10-6800K APU you should definitely do so; it will help educate you on exactly what you are getting - for FREE.

To enter, I need you to leave a comment on this very news post below telling us what you would build with a brand new A10 APU - you don't have to be registered to do so but we'd sure like it if you were.  (Make sure you leave your correct email address so I can get in touch with you if you win.)  Also, feel free to stop by the PC Perspective YouTube channel and either give our videos a gander or subscribe.  I think we put out some great content there and we'd like more of you to see it. 

I will pick one winner on June 17th and another on June 24th so you have two separate weeks to potentially win! 

A big thanks goes out to AMD for supplying the APUs and copies of SimCity for this giveaway.  Good luck!!

if i won i would upgrade from my Athlon2 to a new gaming rig and it would make the choice easy, its long over due and compared to my current system that stand alone chip would probably kick the S**t out of it without even heating a core

current system
Athlon x 2 245
Gts 250

I had been a long time AMD fan, yet as of late Ive been a bit cynical about their recent releases. The Richland looks promising and Im not too hyped on the Haswell, so honestly if I had a Richland I would rebuild my CPU to work with it and compare it to my older i-5 3570k.

Hi PcPer, Great timing! I'm actually gathering parts for a new AMD APU build, so far I have a Cooler Mster HAF XB case, the Asrock Extreme6 FM2 motherboard, an OCZ 120GB Vertex 3 SSD and a Corsair H100. Planning on adding a Corsair CX 600M PSU, a Seagate 1TB SSHD, XFX HD 6670 video card, whatever ODD i can find for under $20.00 and of course the AMD A10-6800K APU I hope to win in the next couple weeks from Love your Wednesday live streams, I log in the chat using my PcPer registered name above.

If I win I'll make sure to send you a video of the completed build.

Wish me luck all!

I would like to win both APUs to build a small render farm. I know it would be very small, but I have to start from somewhere! While the small render farm renders I could play sim city on my laptop! :)

btw even a single APU would be fine...

I would want to build the bling-y-est pc I could think off. So many LED's and OTT accessories that it would dim the lights in the high street and you would have to wear sunglasses just to look at it.

I would update my desktop I built about 5 years ago.

I would build a new computer just so I could troll Ryan on every article while praising Josh on his good work. I would also ask josh about hair styling tips.

I would build a PC for my fiancé to play on, as she is always bugging me to let her play on my machine. I would even customize the bitfenix shinobi (paint) I have sitting there for her to use:)

Thanks pcper for the competition.

My Grandson's computer is a bit long in the tooth, it's a Phenom 8650 system.
