How much fps can i get in bf4 with Amd a10 7850k and a R7 260x 2gb

So after playing with the APU for a while i decided to buy a Radeon card so i can still use mantle, And the R7 260x 2gb is in good price but im looking for about 60fps on low at 1080p

    You'll probably be able to play smoothly on any settings except high/ultra at 1080p.

    Well, thats better then i expected. I was going for a R9 270x 2gb but ill just buy that with another build. Will i be able to crossfire the r7 260x with the apu hopefully on the future?

    APUs won't support CrossFire with any GPUs better than the HD 6670. If you try to do with any better card, it'll just use the R7 260x's graphics power.
  4. Well as long as i get to use mantle and get great fps. It won't matter. Thanks.

    Nope. Unfortunately the Kaveri apus are only compatible with the r7 240 and r7 250 discrete cards :/ they still boost the performance by a lot compared to them working separately, without dual graphics enabled.
  6. Actually, in some games that don't support CrossFire, you will see a decrease in performance when you've CrossFired the APU and the GPU.

    I'm getting the 260x but i have one more question, There are a lot of models, and i can't decide on either Sapphire or MSI. My motherboard is an asus so don't know if that has to do with anything but sapphire is cheaper but don't know which one is better. I'll link the two of them.

    They perform similar, but they have different coolers, and they use different software for overclocking. MSI uses Afterburner and Sapphire uses TriXX. I'd go with Sapphire since it's cheaper.

    Buy the ones that have 2 fans or bigger coolers, they are cooler than the 1 fan versions.

    Thank you so much for all your help. When i get it, i would wish to contact you if anything goes wrong. But i think the drivers i used for the APU are the same.
