Best graphics card for a A4-3400 Tags: Graphics Cards Crossfire Graphics Last response: August 31, 2012 4:38 PM in Graphics & Displays Share combine44 August 31, 2012 3:59:39 PM I recently bought a PC with a A4-3400 APU in it. I would like to know what would happen if I used a card that is better than a 6450 with it. I know it wouldn't crossfire, but would any problems occur? For example, if I used a 6770 with my current APU, would games run better then they do with the APU alone?

APU is kind of useless for serious gaming. combine44 August 31, 2012 4:26:00 PM Really? So the APU wouldn't affect the GPU negatively?

The only reason it would if you got a really high end card (like HD 7950), then the CPU parts of the APU would be too slow for it. It's called bottleneck. gangrel August 31, 2012 4:38:58 PM The AMD APUs were also built to support an external AMD card in Crossfire very well. However, there may be a limit to how fast a card will be supported; IIRC, this is pretty well documented in either the motherboard or processor docs. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
