amd apu system, a6 6400k but what about a video card?

June 27, 2016

i was curious im building a system for my friend, as a gift.. i bought these items

GIGABYTE GA-F2A58M-DS2 FM2+ / FM2 AMD A58 (Bolton D2) Micro ATX AMD Motherboard

1 x ASUS DRW-24B1ST/BLK/B/AS Black SATA 24X DVD Burner - Bulk - OEM

1 x Western Digital WD Blue WD10EZEX 1TB 7200 RPM 64MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive Bare Drive - OEM

1 x G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 8GB (2 x 4GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600 (PC3 12800) Desktop Memory Model F3-12800CL9D-

AMD A6-6400K Richland Dual-Core 3.9GHz Socket FM2 65W Desktop Processor - Black Edition AMD Radeon HD AD640KOKHLBOX

Rosewill LINE-M Micro-ATX Mini Tower Computer Case, Dual USB 3.0, come with Dual Fans, Support up to 4 Fans, 12.5" card

Thermaltake TR2 W0070 430W ATX12V v2.3 Power Supply

now the cpu says on the box that it can be combod with the gpu thats inside the cpu.. so i was lookin at a radeon hd 6570, would that crossfire with the apu's gpu? and they can work together for better frame rates? hes a gamer he plays WoW, Diablo 3, Never winter, Guild wars 2..etc

and im worried that the apu's gpu wont be strong enough, but would crossfire enabled games take advantage of a radeon hd6570 if i put one in there? would i need radeon hd 6570 drivers, or just use drivers for the APU? or do i need both sets of drivers in order to crossfire? Or will this even work at all as it doesnt say the hd 6570 can crossfire, well thanks for reading

The cross-firing with the APU doesn't yield very good performance gains, and is has a lot of limitations. I'd try out the system without a GPU, as is first. None of those games are

too

demanding, especially if he has a monitor that less than 1080p.

If you did buy a GPU, you'd probably have to upgrade the PSU along with it. Any GPU that could run with a 430W Power Supply, is probably not much of an upgrade over the one already built into your APU.

well what about like say a 500watt psu, and a radeon hd 6670, i wish someone would benchmark the graphics of the A6 6400k built in gpu in a few games

Dual-core Trinity and Richland-based systems are not really that big for gaming. Most people bought them mostly for use as HTPCs, or other lesser applications.

With a smaller PSU, I think probably the best bang for buck would probably be the GTX 750 TI. It has a really small power draw.

We need to know the model of the PSU to make a solid recommendation. Not all 500W PSU's are created equal.

Agreed, if it is a sub-par PSU, the GTX 750Ti has a very low power draw. If you have a good PSU, the R9 260X will beat the 750 in most games, for less money, or the R9 270 for a little more money.

Yeah, that's not one of the most solid brands. (except for the vampire series.)

I might stick with a 750Ti. That should cover most of the games.

If you can be patient, and just use the integrated GPU for now, the GTX 960 should be releasing late 2014/early 2015, and will probably be a power-sipper.
