Hi

 

 

 

 

I've just bought an A10 6800 as I wanted only basic games (I haven't gamed for 5 years so saw no point in maintaining high end gaming specs like I used to) Now my son wants to start gaming .. D'Oh!

I read that the A series APU's can be paired with compatible graphics card for a crossfire effect. However it said specific cards and check compatibility with your processor. Having spent an hour on AMD's home page I can not locate the list of compatible graphics cards for this kind of pairing with the one built into the processor.

Would anyone know what cards are compatible please.

 

AMD APU A10 6800K Black Edition 4.4GHz Socket FM

Asus F2A85-V Pro Socket FM2 VGA DVI HDMI DisplayPort 8 Channel Audio ATX Motherboard

Corsair Vengeance Pro 16gb (4 X 4gb) (PC2133 unbuffered)

I own but haven't installed a Radeon HD4670 1GB DDR3 graphics card. (Its so far below the one built into the processor I thought it might hinder performance not help it)

If you are going to play games anything 7850 and above would work. With the release of R series card the 7800/7900 series are much cheaper. Go look at a XFX 7870 2GB on NewEgg is 199.99 with free shipping.

AMD A10-5800K, XFX 7850 Ultra OC Edition 975MHz, 16GB RAM, Win 8.1 Pro 64 bit, MSI 7778 motherboard, 500W PSU, HP P7-1235, CCC 13.12 WHQL

The HD 6670 and 6570 are the cards you can crossfire with that APU but it would be better idea to just get the 7850 like WMudrockjr said and forget about CF

FX 8320// Asus Sabertooth R2.0 // HIS R9 280x //8Gb of 1866Mhz ram, H50 cooling, HX850W psu all stuffed into a NZXT Phantom case.
