I'm planning a new build, I have to purchase a piece or 2 over per pay period the next several months. I was wondering if you guys think sticking a 7870 in my current system would work, I plan on running this card in crossfire on mew system but would use 1 in current system. I have plenty of power and 8 gb of ram with my asus fm1 mb. Thoughts

that's prob the highest priced item so would prob hold off for last and keep an eye out for a sale or possibly a better deal on a better card...price may also drop

U may not get full performance but will work fine if ur going to update the whole system later on, if i remember that gen of apus were based of the K10 or Phenom II and Athlon II series so expect similar performance cpu wise but from what i seen the a8s 2.4ghz clock speed will hurt quite a bit lol If u can attempt to overclock to around 3ghz the loss wont be much, my friend has a phenom II x4 945 3ghz paired with a 5850 and the gpu get abouts 85% use in bf3 b4 the cpu hits 100%, its still playable the gpu just isnt performing to its potential, but as said go for it and wait for the rest of ur upgrade

valid point, my current rig, even in dual graphics with the 6670 I have issues in some games. I have had this build saved for 3 times and life gets in the way, so I have a pile of parts started and save a little less.

That's what I normally suggest to clients who pick up the parts a little at a time, It's generally the higher price stuff, that may have a price drop in the not to distant future, so if the higher priced is the last to be bought you have longer to look for a good deal and maybe even find a better component
