Later on when I get some more money I'm going to either get a 6670 and crossfire it with the apu or get a better discrete card and use that. But I think this build will be good for atleast my minecraft needs, and maybe some COD. (Even if I can't record COD with it I will be happy :) )

Hi, it isn't worth it to buy a 6670 to crossfire it with the APU. It doesn't really increase performance.

This would be a better build after MIR. Everything is better :) . Good luck.
