I recently bought the following:

Processor: AMD A10-5800K APU with AMD Radeon HD 7660D

Mainboard: Asus A55BM-Plus

 

If I was to add a video card which one for around $100 would be a good fit? The mainboard supports Crossfire but I really don't know allot about this. I also have this video card:

Nvidia Geforce Galaxy GT610 GC 2GB DDR3 64bit

 

If I used it could I still use the GPU Boost technology on the board? I want to compliment what I have and not just ignore the processors GPU by inserting the Nvidia Geforce.

I am running Windows 8.1 64-bit with 4 GB DDR3-1600 RAM.

As you can see I'm really not sure what to do to get the best performance.

 

Thanks in advance,

SysopChris.

Thief, Diablo III, StarCraft, Titanfall, Elder Scrolls, Dark Souls II.

I also love being able to play MP3's in Winamp and play visualizations like Geis & Milkdrop fullscreen using my Samsung TV as a extended monitor. Some of these use DirectX and other like AVS are purelly CPU driven.

Here's what's in dxdiag.txt for the current APU+GPU processor.

I just got this processor and could probably send it back to NewEgg. The other one I was looking at was: Athalon X4 760K AD760KWOHLBOX.

Then I would use my Galaxy GT610. What do you think?
