hello everyone, im trying to upgrade my graphics card but the only thing is that i have an APU system so i am not sure what to do.

My system:
AMD A6-3650 APU with Radeon(tm) HD Graphics (4 CPUs), ~2.6GHz

Graphics:
AMD Radeon HD 6530D

Ram: 4 GB

Basically my questions are:
Will crossfireing an AMD card that is compatible with this system significantly boost my system to play bf3 on lets say medium settings?

Can i get a new graphics card that is NOT compatible and use this card as my PRIMARY gpu instead of the integrated on?

My budget for a new card is $70. What are some good cards that can run bf3 as a decent setting and frame-rate for this price?

Well, you should probably get a GPU that will run dual graphics, i would recommend a radeon 6670 ->http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Does using dual graphics provide a significant boost? Is the radeon 6670 and my integrated Radeon HD 6530D enough to run battlefield at about medium - high settings?

it depends on the resolution, and what fps you want, you will definatley not be able to play it at medium high settings, the APU you have does doesnt have enough processing power.

you could probably play medium lowish settings at 30-40 fps

What about this one? It's $80 but you can play bf3 in 1080p at high with playable frames
