No on-board video. Good for an upgrade or pair it with a cheap FM2+ board and some DDR3.
Took an older FM2 quad up to 5 GHz & paired it with a video card for an ultra budget game rig.

If it weren't *shudder* Piledriver architecture, I might go for it. But you're better off (I think, not 100% sure) with a G4560 for gaming. Then again, that's a $70 processor, and this one is $20 cheaper.

Edit: If you've already got an FM2+ board, though, and it currently has one of the single-module / dual-core APUs in it, then it might well be worth it to get this one as an upgrade, and then throw in a GT1030 or an RX550 / 560 for some lite gaming. That combo would probably run pretty darn good.

With the stock cooler that will OC and a nice graphics card, it could end up being the best of the cheapest gaming rigs around.

Great idea!

G4560 is $57.60 at Superbiiz with their 10% off Memorial Week offer. It was $60 before the coupon for a while (they bumped the price up).
Too many extra pc's here or I'd buy one.
