Hello, I recently purchased an A10-5800K and wanted to find out if there would be any performance gains in games by pairing it with a Radeon HD 6450. I realized that the suggested cards for the A10 are the 6570 and 6670, but was wondering if the 160 stream processors on the 6450 would be put to use in dual graphics mode. Thanks.

That's probably not going to work out well...  Trying to crossfire two cards of different capabilities tends to cause all kinds of super-annoying problems that don't affect single GPU systems.

If you need more crunch power in graphics, then get a 7000 series card and just use that.  If you don't, then keep the system as it is.  If it's not broke, don't fix it.
