Hello, I'm gonna buy a new PC next year in order to play games, watch HD movies and for my studies. I've decided that my PC must use a discrete graphic card, so, Can I have any benefit from the Fusion/Sandy Bridge?

My budget is about 450-500 USD.

Thanks for any answer and please check for my grammar/vocab.

I'm from vietnam.

A6 and A8 Fusion APU's can be crossfired with a Radeon HD 6450, 6570 or 6670. You can't combine the Sandy Bridge graphics with anything.

if you're going to the discreet route, skip the fusion apus and get an i3/15 2xxx.

get any 6xxx/550 (or better) as a discreet card.

I'd rather go for Bulldozer not Fusion since you'll be using a discrete card. Fusion is just a general purpose cpu.

I think the important factor here is cost. What can you get for 450-500 USD?

Oh, thanks for all. I think that I had better prepare 600 $ up, so my choice is wider
