I'm wondering whats a good graphics card to pair with my amd a10 5800k apu ?

this are my specs:

CPU - AMD A10 5800k (APU)
Motherboard - BIOSTAR Hi-Fi A85W
Memory - 8gb g.skill ripjaws ( 2x4gb )
Psu - Corsair 430w
Hard drive - Seagate Barracuda 2tb
Case - Corsair Carbide Series 300R

my graphics card budget is $50 to $100

I'm mostly looking to improve my gaming/editing/rendering/livestreaming Experience on my computer any tips on improving that ?

  1. Radeon 7770
  2. yup what outlander said....anything slower would bottleneck it

    i know the 7770 requires a 500w supply, something lacking with 430w. you may need to upgrade your PSU as well.
  4. No point in using a 7770 as a dedicated card. What you should do is buy a 7750 and do hybrid crossfire with the dedicated graphics in the APU. This will get you more power than disabling the integrated graphics and using a 7770.

    Unless something has changed, the 7750 and above does not support AMD's "dual-graphics" with its current APUs. Again, unless something has changed, the highest card that the A10-5800k can be configured with "dual-graphics" is the Radeon 6670. If you still want to take advantage of the graphics part of your APU, you need to use a Radeon 6670. The combination will give you somewhere near 7750 performance in games that can take advantage of CrossFire. Otherwise you should use a more powerful single card like the 7770. And that Corsair 430 can *probably* handle a 7770. From AMD: http://www.amd.com/us/products/technologies/dual-graphics/Pages/dual-graphics.aspx#3

    I apologize. I had read multiple places that you could do it with the 7750 but I cannot find it anymore, so I guess the people that tried it didnt make it work.
  8. Get the Asus HD6670 1GB GDDR5. It is recommended by AMD for this purpose, it's cheap and it comes with a DIRT 3 download voucher.
  9. the 6670 is the top rated card you can create the hybrid crossfire with [ if I remember correctly]

    so yeah

    BUY A 7770 , and have better graphics performance . It will run perfectly well on the 430 watt psu .
