    It is possible but not in some weird hybrid cross-sli-fire. The only way the combo can really work together at the same time is if you used the 520 as a dedicated PhysX card. You will be using both cards at the same time but only in games that use PhysX.

    i dont have crossfire or sli.. just a simple mobo.. so how do i know if a game uses physX? and how wud i set it up to work properly and the game run off the apu?
  4. Some motherboards allow you to use integrated graphics in intel cpus to support your gaming experience but it's not crossfire/sli. For example, my asrock extreme4 z77 board allows me to run Vsync off of the integrated graphics. Good luck getting Nvidia and AMD equipment to play nicely together lol. You can do the PhysX thing, but it would be a little pointless as the 520 is probably more powerful than the APU anyways.
  5. The A8 graphs is more powerful than the 520. The 520 only benchmarks in the 300s.
