Motherboard has PCIe2.0x16 slot labeled CrossfireX Ready.

Currently running the Integrated AMD RADEON HD 6530D graphics core. 

What are my current GPU options to crossfire with this. 

Please, any help would be appreciated.  I am aware I have to upgrade my PSU.

You should direct this to ASUS, reason being - ASUS mainboard = probably proprietary BIOS and features etc & 300W PSU = not much for a discrete card TBH.

like i said, i know i have to upgrade the PSU, but, i want to know the common crossfire compatibilies for that integrated graphics unit. 

 its still an amd, and its still a radeon, thus being able to crossfire it.  do i have to get another radeon amd card, installing a separate standalone card, then disable the integrated card OR I would prefer to crossfire it, and want to know what cards are capable, since the system clearly says it is.

 

Thanks and please continue to help.

Well, you could have checked the AMD website maybe ? It has ALL this type of information available, I found it very quickly using the terms "AMD A6-3620 & crossfire compatible graphics card" :

AMD DUAL GRAPHICS WITH APU CHIPS WEBPAGE

 

I'd just get a better discrete card as that'll be more powerful than any hybrid option will give you ..

As I said, as it's a 3rd party built PC, I'd contact the manufacturer about it and ask about suitability ( due to low end 300W PSU ) and especially about compatibility -> because you don't want to go out and buy a card, only to find that only ASUS built cards will run in it due to possible proprietary features in place on the machine.

Thank You!

Heh .. I have the magic potion to reveal hidden stuff on websites .. haha ..

Well, my understanding of it is that they're working together in a kind of Hybrid XFire situation but it isn't really true XFire ( if that make sense ).

DUAL GRAPHICS STUFF @ TomsHardware

.. that might give you an idea as to what to expect and how it works etc. There are probably loads of other websites out there with better ways of explaining things than I can heheh .

I'd do some research into performance with the topmost card which can be used with the CPU and then with a single VGA card and see which performs best. My guess is that you'd be better off with a single discrete VGA card in the range above the topmost compatible card for that CPU. Weigh the pros and cons and if the cost comes within a few £/$ etc, go for a more powerful single discrete VGA card ..
