HD 8400 Dual graphics with dedicated gpu

I was just curious as to what is a recommended GPU to pair it with.
I am looking in to building my little bro a light gaming pc for things like fallout and borderlands maybe a little Bad company 2 or BF3 on a 1024x768 monitor
the CPU is http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113364 I know it will more than likely be under powered but he wont need much and it should run all of these games fine
thanks in advance

  1. Well the HD 8400 are onboard. You can get any kind of addin PCIe Card as long as it can fit and has the right power requirements. What kind of games are we talking about and how powerful is the Power Supply

    i stated the games above and I know that any pcie gpu will work i was just wondering which ones will crossfire with the 8400
    and the psu is a proper referb 300w that i ahve already ok'ed
  3. 300 Watts is a bit on the low site for adding in a graphics card. The only thing about Hybrid Cross fire with APU Graphics is you really won't see any difference. You would be better off getting like a R7 240/250 if you want to stick with AMD or like a 640/750 for nvidia
  4. A 300 watt PSU is fine for a 25 watt CPU and 65 watt GPU
    and I think I will just go with a 250 and try dual graphics.

    Yea just make sure it doesn't require any extra power cables and you should be good. Yea didn't realise the CPU used only 25 watts haha. I'm use to 65+ watt CPU's

    It doesn't the pci-e slot should supply the card with all of the power it needs
