In our application tests, we were surprised how similarly the A10-5800K and Core i3-3220 performed. There was little difference between them in Excel while the Core i3-3220 provided superior WinRAR performance and the A10-5800K gave superior Photoshop CS5 results. Things were also close in our encoding benches, with the A10-5800K doing a tad better in Handbrake and slightly worse in TMPGEnc 4.0 XPress.

Performance wise, I'd go with the Core i5. Since you don't game, either can deliver smooth HD playback. I would recommend a cheapo graphics card down the road, always best to have a dedicated GPU, even if it's not very powerful/not used for gaming.
thanks for that info peteruk
so what about the comparison between the Intel Core i5 3330 and the a10 5800k?

hey nexusline.. many thanks for your links. 6 cores? heres me thinking im almost at my peek at running it down to 2 choice of the i5 and the A10 however how come the cpu you have in that bundle is cheaper than the other 2 that has been suggested and how does it compare?
for some reason i can hardly see any information with regards to the i5 3330 cpu. I did however find a video comparing the fx-6100 to the i5-2500 which shows that the i5 is a higher performer but costs quite a bit more. which is true in this instance of the version too.
Im starting to slide towards the A10 due to cost and performance however im hardly a gamer. would i still benefit at all? or is really the i5 the way to go?
