I'm building a computer for my little brother on a budget.
I've got the A8-5600k processor already purchased. I own a Geforce GTS 450 from a previous computer that I was planning on using before knowing about the Dual Graphics capability.
Does the Dual Graphics boost from the processor and Radeon dedicated card surpass the GeForce GTS 450 alone that I already own? If so, by how much (generally). If it's a noticeable difference, I'll plop down the $60 for the boost.
i suggest you pair your A8 witha GTS 450 .
that would give more performance than any graphics like 6560 or 6670 in dual graphics because a lot of games dont utilize dual graphics and some actually show a drop in performance.
so its best you use your gts 450
Ahhh, makes sense to me. I found some benchmarks comparing the two (GTS 450 vs. 6670 dual) about an hour after posting, anyway and the results were about on par or slightly worse for the dual graphics. If some games don't even utilize the tech, definitely not worth it.
