Switchable graphics Compatiblity: GTX 650 with APU A6 3500
My existing system: Board: Gigabyte GA A55mDS2 Processor: A6 3500 (IGP: 6530D) Now, I plan on purchasing any one of the two cards below: GTX 650 or, Radeon 7750 Now is there any chance the card not being compatible with my setup or cause driver related issues? Will I be still able to use the auto switchable graphics between the APU and dedicated card?

Desktop graphics do not switch unless using virtu which I won't suggest. Either card will work and you won't want to use your igpu anyways.
^^ No switching! you mean the dedicated card will always be ON...even when I am not playing games or GPU intensive tasks, the dedicated card will keep on like a power consuming beast?
Idle, the 7750 uses 5w, the 650 is 6w. Browsing/movies/etc. may make it go to 10-15 or so. To mobile devices this small amount will matter for battery life, but for desktops it won't matter. That's hardly $5 for an entire year on your power bill.
Oh that makes sense...but what about driver compatibility..I mean the nVDIA card OK with my APU and board?
