Hello,
Quick question I bought the two above products and was wondering will this crossfire or better to turn off on chip? Confused over these Apuleius

The dual graphics is a new technology and therefore not that good yet is what I have heard...so I think the general consensus might just be to run just the card.

no offense but i think you made a bad decision over there. what's the point of an a10 when you're going with a 7870? a piledriver processor would've been the better choice.

if you still have time to change your order then please do.

No. They will not XFire together. The integrated graphic core should disable itself to the best of my knowledge.

The most powerful card that Trinity will XFire with is the Radeon HD 6670 / HD 7670. Both cards are the same. The HD 7670 is just a rebranded HD 6670 and is only sold to OEM builders like Dell, Acer and HP.

I do care WTF they call it. :) 

Anything faster than the Radeon HD 6670 (HD 7670) will automatically disable the integrated GPU core.

Jaguarskx is correct at the moment amd only allows for the igpu and something near a 6670 and under to hybrid crossfire/dual graphics whatever its called. a 7870 will not work with the igpu on any apus at this time

Update
Thanks to Craigslist I managed to get rid of the pieces I wanted to. I ended up with the i5 3570k which was my idea at the beginning of this but was short on funds.
So my next question seeing how I sold the graphics card which should I get gtx 660 or 7870 cards. I'm trying to swing the 660 ti not sure yet if I can.
Thanks for all the comments.

So you are short of cash so you buy an expensive CPU which needs an expensive platform to be unharnessed and the GPU on top of that.

I have made socket FM2 my fanfare at present, have FM2 setups running a 5800k with a HD7870 Myst and a Athlon II 750K with a 7950, both play BF3 64 man maps fully buffed at the same FPS as I did with my 1100T's and FX parts. Just because its FM2 doesn't mean performance is cheap, those that get over the low cost myopia and actually go and own one will see these are very impressive parts. Simply put the APU is revolutionary there is nothing that comes close to it and has is the only true HSA ready CPU on the market which will start to have material benefits as the years go on.

A 750K + A85 would set you back less than $200 which is less than the 3570k retails for, that would get you to your GTX660ti or 7870LE

By the time I sold the amd parts off I managed to have more money to work with. That's how I ended up with the new intel parts I also got faster ram. No GPU yet but I was considering the 7950 vapor x 3 gig I think (sapphire) or the Msi power edition 660 ti 2 gig eventually ill be buying a second card to crossfire or sli which do you guys prefer ill be gaming eventually on it. I have 1866 ram 16 gig and a ssd 120gig hard drive. Any opinions would be great.

Thanks for everything so far.

i think the 7950 is better than the ti, and amd has better multi monitor with eyeinfinity, but i know for sure in certain games that they prefer nvidia, either is a good choice, at this time i dont think sli or crossfire is worse than the other its more on how stable the drivers are. Im crossfiring two 6770, but there lower end cards and dont scale well as i couldnt bump settings in some games because of the 1gb vram.

SLI 660s if i remember beat a single 680 and of course two 7950 would beat a single 7970 lol
