So I'm about to start on my first ever build and I was wondering if the Radeon 6670's 128-bit bandwidth and 1 GB memory would be enough to suit my needs and also not bottleneck my AMD Phenom II x4 processor.

I'm not really a hardcore PC gamer but I do play some and I'm thinking about sc2.

Also, I need to know if I get a motherboard with an integrated graphics card and is crossfire ready will the Radeon 6670 run in tandem or if I'm better off looking for a M/B without an igc.

Rig (so far):

Processor: AMD Phenom II 965 Quad core

CPU Speed: 3.4 GHz

RAM: 8 GB DDR3

Power Supply: Probably 600w

I believe that most, if not all integrated graphics card solutions will not run in tandem with a Radeon 6670, though I may be mistaken.

I also would suggest a more powerful card, such as a 7700, to run Starcraft II at ultra on 1080p. If you would like to run dual monitors you might even start thinking about a 7850.

hmmm that's not too bad. id be fine paying 30 extra for that msi but are the extra 200 core clock and 128 stream processors going to make a difference?
