A10 + R250 or something + R7-260X

What would you do? I'm still planning, it will be in weeks from now, but I'm not sure what to do:

A) get an APU and live with it
B) get an APU and crossfire an R7 250
C) get a CPU or APU and use my dedicated R7 260X 2gb
D) get CPU or APU with a better card than the R7 260X
E) CPU with something better than R7 260X
F) ...find another R7 260X 2gb to crossfire

I don't mind buying refurb or open box. Used from local ads, not so much... Could do but can be tricky with expert liars.

if I go with option E) I want a GPU that has 4gb of vram and that runs DX12/Mantle. I want to play BF4 at max on a 1080p display without having to tune down anything. While I say that I tink BF4 runs on DX11/Mantle.

So I guess R9 200 could do but I figure sometimes it's easier to find R9 300 since they probably don't make R9 200 anymore. Even on refurbished it's hard to find them.

I3 and R9 380 is probably The best you could buy under 300 bucks
