A10-5800k w/ 6670

So I really want a new cpu upgrade to play guild wars 2. My current cpu sucks (Athlon 5600+ dual core) <-----fail cpu lol Guild Wars 2 runs at about 12~30 fps lol

I have the Asus 6670 1Gb DDR5 graphics cards http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814121442

So I was reading that the A10-5800k's on-board graphics will crossfire with the 6670

Once I heard this I screamed like a little girl (not lying) :)

Concerns:
1. Will the Asus 6670 GPU version crossfire with the A10-5800k
2. Does it auto crossfire the graphics when you start the computer, or are there bios settings you have to mess with? (not a big concern)
3. Will this board http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813157332 work with everything? (pretty sure it does)
4. Will the A10-5800K + 6670 be enough to play guild wars 2 at 60+ fps? (biggest concern)

Thanks you taking the time to read this!

Resolution 1920x1080 btw :)

  1. what resolution are you playing at?

    1. yes
    2. never have owned, im guessing it is a bios thing.
    3. yes
    4. depends on your resolution.
  2. 1920x1080

    Thanks btw!
  3. It will play gw2 at med settings will stay about 60 fps untill you are in a populated area. Might see droped below 30+ fps, I play GW2 max settings with gtc 460 2win--- 2 gtx 460's on one Pcb I dip below 60 fps at times
  4. A hybrid gpu with the 6670 and igpu from a llano A8 3870k which makes it a 6690d2 gets similar performance as a 6770, which should play guild wars 2 pretty good. Not to sure on settings and fps but saw a imac with an i5 and 6770 on medium get 30-40, and another that used the 6770 and got 67fps from the final beta release or something. if its performs similar it should b good and since u alrdy got the 6670 would prob be the better choice. A10 is $130 atm plus new motherboard, with existing gpu. A phenom X4 965 @ $90 plus save for similar priced motherboard and get a 7770/6850/6870. <- will cost more and require you to sell the 6670 and of course the dual core moterboard and ram lol but would be better.
  5. I'm doubting that the Crossfire would work due to microstuttering, which usually becomes more frequent as the GPUs weaken, though there are a few people who happen to not have an microstuttering even with weak GPUs.

    Just don't be surprised if you have to undo the dual-Gpu setup.

    I think that the Dual-graphics is actually pretty good about that, but IDK for sure.

    1. Yes, it should work.
    2. No BIOS settings. Re-install your Ati/AMD drivers when you buy the A10 and it should enable Dual-Graphics by default.
    3. Yes, that board will work. However, although you probably don't care about this, that board does not have USB 3.0 nor SATA 6Gb/s support.
    4. I think you'd be fine, but that would depend on what you're doing. No matter what, it'd be a huge improvement over your current system in CPU performance and a great improvement in graphics performance, for what that's worth.

  9. In the AMD catalyst control Centre it has a option for dual graphics, when you pair a A10 5800K with a HD6670 you will get Dual Graphics mode, if you consider the price and performance, got BF3 to medium presets SSAO at 1080 res and playable around 32FPS.

    Rather look at a A85 motherboard, get more features and connectivity.

    As to how you will play the game in dual graphics mode is wholy dependant on the title, I am not going to say 60FPS but you will get well above playable FPS.
  10. Any CPU lesser than overclocked i5/i7 would struggle to hold 60fps constantly.

    Graphic wise alongside my i5 2500K at 4.5GHz, at 1920 res my overclocked 5850 can easily hold 60fps in non-busy area on max settings but with NativeSampling rather than the taxing SuperSampling, but occassionally with dips down to 40-45fps (not CPU bottlenecking as the GPU usage is at 99%). So for max settings at 1920 res on NativeSampling, you should look at a overclocked 7850 at least; for SuperSampling you'd need to look at 7950 or above.

    You don't necessarily need an i5/i7 to hold ~60FPS.
