The better CPU is the Athlon.

Cheers for your reply! I was leaning towards that because it's newer but I'm new at all this so didn't really know.

It's the newer generation but it lacks the L3 cache package so it'll be faster in some things, slower in others.

The 860k is the same CPU as the much more widely benchmarked A10-7850k if that helps.

EDIT: There are a variety here: http://www.hardware.fr/articles/913-7/cpu-performances-applicatives.html

As a general rule I'd go for a Pentium G3258 or G3420, much more energy efficient and still with plenty of power.
