which is better, and why of the following three processors? which is the least preferred?

FX-6100
1045T
a10-6700

other than the motherboards, the system will have the same ram (8gb), same ssd (120gb), windows 10, same video card. Have the parts to put one system together with 8gb ram and 120gb ssd, and not sure on the video card, I think I have a ati 7750 card to put in it. its going to be used for watching youtube, Netflix, online flash games. none of the processors would be overclocked or upgraded later so upgrading later on or overclocking is not a factor

Off hand I would go with the FX-6100 since that would offer the best performance. What is the clockspeed, # of cores, and TDP?

1045T is the worst here. It'll perform about like the A10-6700 but draws 50% more power.

The FX-6100 is the best CPU here, but the A10-6700 is the best CPU for the things you listed because it's 65W vs. 95W.

I am thinking the A10 with no video card too because of the overall power draw, same copper heatpipe cooler would be used on which ever I build,

Weird, I would have preferred the 1045T, since it has the highest IPC out of all of those CPUs. Power consumption, well, I wasn't really considering that.
If that's an issue, then the A10-6700 for certain.
