My first build , i was on a tight budget so i searched for something good and with upgrade potential , i use the APU so far and when i make more money i want to buy a graphic card , will the 7850 or 7870 suffer from the poor CPU ? .
The APU can be OC if needed.

Anthing above the HD7750 would be bottlenecked by your CPU. But that does not mean its a bad idea to go to HD7770 for example.

However you could dual-Xfire the Onboard graphics with an HD6670 GDDR5.

That's what I thought , it was my bad that i bought that APU , so i think i will buy the 7770 then . Thanks
Or should i wait for the Amd 8--- series for the equivalent of 7770 ?

No point really, anything more powerful would be wasting the extra money since your CPU will not allow better performance. At least the HD7770 is A HUGE improvement over the onboard GPU.

I thought that he is asking if the A8 5600k is a good CPU performer alone, :D 

Yes, A8 5600k will perform as a good quad core processor, It can handle up to hd 7870 or gtx 660.
The bottleneck is only little and it is considered not a Bottleneck at all. :) 

Sorry for wrong grammars :(

You are saying that i could put HD 7870 on my system an don't have any problem right? no bottlenecked ..or no major performance reduction ...then i'm lookinf forword for Black FRyday haha thanks

It has a bottleneck but only 5-10%, if that A8 5600k is overclocked to 3.6....It will not bottleneck and instead it will perform 5% increase....This percentage are only slight differentiate in performance.

changing CPU (except from dual to quad core CPUs) will only increase the performance up to 20% (from 2 core to 4 core , up to 30%) while changing GPU will increase performance up to 250%.

The core performance of the A8 will perform well with something like the above mentioned 660 or 7870. I have no idea where someone would think it would bottleneck anything higher than a 7750.

http://cpuboss.com/cpus/AMD-Phenom-II-X4-965-vs-AMD-A8-... 5600k vs 965BE, single core basically the same and multi core slightly worse so should easily handle a gpu like a 7870/660gtx

ok thanks guys and I OC the cpu at 4000, is stable and cool at 35 - 45 C

I
have right know an amd a8 the first one that came out...
later i bought a 1080p monitor so i couldn't get nice fps.. so i bought a
7850, now i run everything max out 50-60fps but if i want to sustain
60fps, i cant go 4x antiliasing, not big deal for me . regards.
