I have just purchased a Gigabyte GA-F2A55M-DS2 FM2 socket Motherboard and A4-5300 AMD cpu. I'm familiar with the specifications of and upgrades on this board and cpu. I've seen in the forums that overclocking does not do much but filling in both channels of ram (on a dual channel) board seems to work well for performance. I am currently using 1 piece 4GB ddr3 1333mhz on a the first slot and thinking of buying another stick of 4GB ram of the same model and brand. I need some suggestions and help on how to optimize the igpu of the processor, is there a way to do like a crossfire type by buying a pcie vcard that's of Radeon 6k series to 7k series and combining it with the igpu of the cpu.

Not to be rude but why would you even buy the A4 if you intended to do these tasks? If your willing to buy a SSD and a video card you could of gotten a A10 and be better off

The best optimization is just to buy a good video card. Dual graphics is a waste of money. CF a 6670 with an APU gets you exactly the same bench as just running a 6670 in almost every game.

I'd just leave the single 4GB in there and pu the money toward a 7750.

This rig is really optimal for him since all he plays are some low req open world games and mods it.



Sorry i was just asking but i think a 6670 would be a great idea and you can get a DDR3 one for probably 60$. 128 radeon cores is pretty low even for that task so a 6670 would be a huge upgrade and another 4GB ram stick would be smart as well all of that for around 100$ is a good investment
