Hi I was wondering about using a APU and dual graphics cards.  My specs are:


A10-5800k APU

dual 5770s (one by xfx and the other from saphire)

motherboard is a asrock fm2A85x extreme6

PSU is a 400 watt OCZ 

driver version 13.20.11-130904a-161995E-ATI


What I'm wondering, is there a good way to get my APU and graphics cards to work in unison? I've read bits and peices online about people getting things to work great but nothing concrete. 

my computer will tend to lag a bit even when im just messing around in windows. is there anything I'm doing wrong reguarding my APU? I'm still pretty new to the whole APU world.

With those two cards I would say no, but I have tried to stay away from Dual Graphics. I have included a link to a chart that shows what cards can be used with what APUs. I chose to use a 7850 with my A10-5800K, while this does disable the 7660D the system does play most modern games with ease.
