Hello, 

 

I own a AMD A6 5400k with integrated HD Radeon 7540D and a motherboard manufactured by MSI. I want to use Dual Graphics and I found that the best choice for my processor and Graphic is AMD Radeon HD 6570, from AMD site. 

Now, on MSI webpage, my  FM2 A55M P33 motherboard compatibility list contains only the indication of 1024 MB memory size. Does this mean that if I get a video card with 2048 MB memory size, I will not get the Crossfire working? I mean, will the new card work on its own, without any other help from the integrated one?

I would not recommend doing so as the performance increase will not be satisfactory. i suggest you guys just buy a discrete graphics card like amd radeon 7750 or 7770 or 7850 depending on your budget and disable the onboard graphics altogether. this would give you much more performance than what the crossfire would give you and crossfire is not supported by many games either so its best to just get a separate graphics card like 7750.

I use a 7850 clocked to 975Mhz with my A10-5800K playing games like BioShock, TombRaider and a slew of NFS series games. Olders games like Halo, Doom 3 rock too.

Thanx man,

So I understand there is no reason for me to try Crossfire between the onboard GPU and the recommended HD Radeon. So, if I choose, let`s say Nvidia GeForce GT 630, it would be a better choice for gaming than Dual Graphics?
