Hey

i am probably going to get the msi gtx 660 2gb twin frozr. i have the a10-6800k and i know alot of you will cringe because whats the point of getting an apu when not going to use ig. Sending the apu back is a no go because the pc is built which will mean i will have to send the mobo back etc.
Im not using the ig coz i am going to do more gaming that expected on my pc. Will the gpu and the apu work fine together but will the apu bottleneck it?
Thanks

I think it will work. You should OC the APU if you can.

Thanks for the reply

at the moment, i am using the stock cooler (crap i know) but when i get the gpu, i will be getting an afternarket cooler.
Would the actric cooling freezer 7 pro rev.2 be ok?
And how much should i overclock it by (this is my first build im only 14!)

What is your psu? You may need a new one before you buy that 660.
I would get the Cooler Master hyper 212 plus or evo since they are so well known and I have never heard anything bad about them.

I have a corsair cx430m, it's a bit low as the 660 im getting requires a 450. but the gpu has 1 pci power and my psu has 1 pci power so all should be good :-)

Yeah psu should be good. Google "a10 6800k overclock" and there should be several guides for it

Cool thanka for the help, one more thing, the hyper 212 do you have to mount it on outside the case onto the mobo because i really cant be bothered to get it all out again, since ive already rebuilt it twice (due to faulty mobo)
