Hey guys im getting the AMD A10-5800K Trinity 3.8GHz (4.2GHz Turbo) Socket FM2 100W Quad-Core Desktop APU (CPU + GPU) with DirectX 11 Graphic AMD Radeon HD 7660D AD580KWOHJBOX (http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...) From newegg. I want to pair it with another GPU but I have no clue what to go with sense the CPU has a good one built in. Im going to be playing and live streaming BF3 on ultra (playing 1080P Streaming in 720) With 8 GB RAM. So anyways my main question is do I need a Expensive GPU or can I go with a lower end card and still pull off what I want? (Sorry bit of a noob with building computers this is my first build)

Well the A10 igpu 7660d would prob barely play low/medium at 1080p, so i would def go with a dedicated gpu, but then ruins the point going with a apu. The cpu portion of the apu is not bad, its just a fx would be better, or even prob a phenom ii x4 965, there pretty close for performance with the x4 just barely winning. Theres also a Phenom ii x6 1045t u can usually get new, as while recording/streaming works better with more cores along with a good gpu, but i did some 1080p assassins creed III gameplay with 30fps 720p recording just fine with a single 6770 using msi afterburner lol

BF3 may be more intense, and havent gotten into live streaming so im just guessing a decent cpu, with a good gpu if u want to play ultra or high, its all about settings, and what ur streaming at and fps etc

The 7850 should do a pretty good job,

^^ benchmark results if u dont want to watch the video, everyone is done with the HIS ICEQ 7870

Video shows live streaming comparing cpus, but using a 7870 which is the model up from the 7850. Hes using fx 8350, i5 3570k, i7 3770k and 3820, but the 6300 shouldnt do much worse than the 8350, plus and overclock on the 6300 brings it to the 8350 performance,

Actually if u can spend the extra get this HIS 7870, same one used in the video i beleive $220 - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...
