  1. The A10 is pointless to get since you're getting a dedicated graphics card. Get an FX-6300, and try to get a better graphics card if you can.

    What is your budget?
  2. Well the GTX550 was free from a friend and the A10/Mobo was sold to me from a friend for not much. I was just wondering what i can do to get the max i can out of those.
  3. First the A10 is an apu meaning it is already has graphics integrated what you can do if you want to have an extra gpu you can get a 6670 to do dual graphics because the 550 will be about the same as the integrated graphics but besides that it looks good

  4. Yeah get a 6670 /
  5. Dump the CM PSU for a decent maker.

    Which 6670 will get me the most increase in performance? and is that the highest i can go? Thanks
  8. Yes, 6670 is the highest.
  9. Would this be a good one?

    and it would work WITH the onboard APU?
  10. Any 6670 will work. You don't need to spend that much . Memory speed will be limited by your system memory.so buy the fastest. The 6670 will work together with the A10 cpu graphics in duo graphics mode. Check youtube foe videos on how to do it.
  11. Yes the 6670 as everyone has pointed out is the GPU to get, but so it doesn't get lost in the shuffle, as Goodeggray said, the speed of your RAM is critical. What speed is your Patriot? For example if it is 1333, you will see a HUGE improvement going up to at least 1866....

    Something like this - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231550

    I have built an A-10 system with this ram and it works well, only I used a cheaper mobo, yours is a nice choice though.
  14. According to your mobo it supports faster ram, but I have been told that above 1866 you will run into conflicts and diminishing returns, though I do not know if this is true.

    will this work well with it?
    thanks

  16. The thing that concerns me with that mobo is that there aren't that many qualified ram kits that I can find. When you run into trouble on new builds it is often because the mobo and ram dont have matched timing/configuations, so I always try to play it safe and only pick from the vendors qualified lists, fo example:

    http://www.asrock.com/mb/overview.asp?cat=Memory&Model=FM2A85X%20Extreme6

    or

    http://www.gskill.com/configurator2.php?pid=2&model=1434 (this is g-skills list for the A75x board - they don't have one for the A85x)
  17. According to Corsairs memory finder this ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233142&Tpk=CMZ8GX3M2A1866C9%29 is qualified on the Asrock FM2A85 pro board, which is at least using the same chipset. (And here is their 16gb qualified ram http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820233287&Tpk=CMD16GX3M2A1866C9)

    Corsair also does not list any ram qualified for the Extreme 6 board and to be honest I am probably being too picky, the ram you linked will probably be fine.
