Will A10 downclock a HD6670 with GDDR5 to GDDR3 or will the intigrated graphics adapt to the GDDR5 memory.

 I have heared a lot of rumors and I dont know which one is true isgust;.

8Gb kingstone 1600mhz RAM

MSI FM2-A85XA-G65

Which isn't much with the sock heatsink or an unbranded 600w PSU. Also, GDDR5 will not "downclock", look on wikipedia for GDDR3 and GDDR5.

Thank you, thinking on getting the MSI R6670 GGDR5 and afterwards building an oil cooling.

 But can anyone please explain whi 600W is not enough good?

Depends on what 600W unit you get. You get a SeaSonic, Corsair, Enermax, PC P&C, or XFX then it'll be fine. You get something like a store brand or something like a HiPro, you end up with a 240v bomb.

Never buy a cheap PSU, it will bite you in the a$$ in the long run

I suggest a Corsair TX650 will last a long time and be trouble free even when using a high-end video card like the HD 7850 etc

I use the 850W version, mainly so I can use 2 video cards

+1  Corsair psu's have been very good for all my builds for friends and relatives.

And very affordable.
