I am looking for more performance out of my video card and I have a few questions.
Should I disable the onboard and go with the best card I can afford looking to spend around $250 or
should I go with the crossfire capable card.
I tried to read about it on the website but I dont understand what card I need to get.
here is what it says
1. Please use both AMD Dual Graphics technology qualified A-series APU and VGA card, detail information please refer to AMD website: http://www.amd.com/us/products/technologies/dual-graphi...
2. If you use an AMD FM2+ A10/ A8-series qualified APU, suggest pairing with AMD Radeon™ R7-250/ 240-series VGA card.
3. If you use an AMD FM2 A10/ A8/ A6-series qualified APU, suggest pairing with AMD Radeon™ HD 6670/ 6570/ 6450-series VGA card.
Here is the card I am looking at SAPPHIRE 100364L Radeon R9 270X 2GB 256-Bit GDDR5 PCI Express 3.0 x16 HDCP Ready CrossFireX Support Video Card. is the r9 not compatible?
will I be able to run both the integrated card as well as the new card on the crossfire setting and will that be the best way to go?
Even if you can, I can't believe, any onboard would add anything to a R9-270X.
You have enough money for the next step up the GTX760, and then you won't have to worry about crossfire.
Also until the last or last 2 AMD updates, crossfire performance was a myth.
Until they came out with the new frame rating test, nobody knew AMD was just dropping the extra frames, and wasn't really doing anything.
The driver updates only fixed newer cards, older card still don't work correctly.
I had a brain freeze, it is called "frame pacing", fram rating didn't show the problem.
