Hi everyone im new to this forum, need some advice. So i have an amd10 6700 computer, and i noticed that i didnt have a gpu. Iam new with computers so bare with me. So i looked i have one pcie slot. My concern is that iam not sure if i have to stick with a certain brand or series of gpu, from what i research you cant get a gpu that is faster than the integrated one i have which is radeon hd 8760. I just want to know if i cant upgrade with any gpu, by disabling the one in the apu, or is it better to crossfire?

You need to supply more specs like what is detailed in the sticky Read Before Posting. The PSU is the primary concern since you need juice to power the discrete card.

amd a10 6700 3.7 Ghz 4 core processor 8 gb ddr3 sdram psu is 300 watts and i have one pcie x16 slot. i dont know what kind of mother board i have.. From what i have been reading is that i cant get a gpu thats faster than my processor otherwise it would defeat the purpose of upgrading. And iv read that if i want i a dedicated gpu i have to disable the the one that is integrated.. what would work best for me. id like to play games at 1080 res. thanks

You will need to get a better PSU with more watts to drive anything that will get good game play in BF4. In the range of 500 to 750 watts which then match up a R9 or 7900 series card with at least 2GB of GDDR5.

It is recommended that you upgrade your PSU (Power Supply Unit) when installing a GPU (Graphics Processing Unit).

With that said there is a new budget GPU out which should work with your system without upgrading your PSU although I still highly recommend upgrading regardless to protect your investment.

The GPU I'm referring to is the GTX 750 Ti SC which doesn't require a 6-Pinn Power connecter. It draws the power it needs from the PCIe slot in which you will be installing it into. The TDP for this card is 65watt an the PCIe slot is capable of 75watt. Therefore you could use it without upgrading the PSU until you have the extra money to upgrade the PSU (which I'd upgrade ASAP)

The card can be found on www.newegg.com & www.amazon.com between $150.00-190.00

Hope this helps, and yes it will be able to play BF4 an all the latest games. Some with higher settings than others but you should be pleased with it since you do seem to be on a budget this will give you the best performance for your dollar. Feel free to look for other cards if you wish.

Also, I would suggest the EVGA version of this card. As it offers future G-synce tech an is the smallest model of these cards. Plus it looks stylish.
