So im going to get a AMD Radeon HD 6570 for dual graphics with my AMD A6-3650 APU with 4GB Ram. Ive looked on amazon and there seems to be different verstions of this card and i am not sure which one to get. Could someone please provide me with a link to a good Radeon HD 6570 card on Amazon.

They are all basically the same. Just be sure to get one with GDDR5 VRAM. But I don't think you are going to like the Dual Graphics. I tried it with a A10-5800K and a HD 6670. 1 or 2 games showed a slight improvement, but most did not. I don't think games are optimized very well for dual graphics. Some won't even recognize the 2nd card and you'll just be using the APU's on-die GPU.

I can confirm the above when I was messing around with my Sisters Laptop one day.

is an APU system capable of using another amd graphics card as the primary GPU? By this i mean that if i had a top notch amd graphics card, which obviously wont be compatible for dual graphics with my system, could i still use it as my main gpu instead of my crappy integrated graphics?

Absolutely. That is what most APU owners end up doing when they "outgrow" the on-die GPU. Just don't forget to move your video cable from the MB port to the card's port ;-)

If that is your budget limit, that is fine. It is a nice 720p card. And it can game at 1080p too with slightly reduced settings.
