Anything higher than that cannot be crossfired. CPU+7870 > A10+6670 So either way, but go for Vishera or Trinity, stay away from Zambezi. Can't find your answer ? Ask !

The apu's are more for people on a tight budget who want gaming capabilities. If you are planning to buy a dedicated graphics card, then you do not want a APU. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
