A10 with a 7850

Hello i have seen this post http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/349112-10-5800k-crossfire-7850 and i see that i cant crossfire the 7850 with an apu so what good cpu can i get that will crossfire the 7850? or if that post was wrong there will i be able to crossfire it ? or just buy the a10 and add the 7850 and dont crossfire?

More about 7850
  1. you can only crossfire A10 with 6670. get a FX or i3 for the same price and they work better with 7850.
  2. The on-board APU would crossfire with the 6670, or something around the same speed. The 7850 is a nice card, but would run seperately, and mayb bottleneck the processor. The FX series are cheap and decent, or if you want to spend a bit more the I5 series are excellent as well.
  3. Like the post said, you will not be able to crossfire that high-end card with an APU. If you buy the APU and the 7850, you'll most likely have to disable the onboard graphics and make the 7850 the primary GPU. However, I think this would be a waste. Like drunkducki said, an FX or i3 would support the 7850 much better.

    One thing I think you should consider is future upgrades. If you get an A10, it will use the FM2 socket which doesn't support any FX series CPUs which has the AM3+ socket. You'll be limited right from the start.
  4. Thanks people so could someone give ma a £250 Build for the fx thanks :D becauise the one i made for a10 is this and i want it the same price

    NO, it would be about 1/3 to 1/4 as fast.

    Once you get above 6670, crossfire with the CPU would only slow down the more powerful graphics processor. It kind of ends up like having a rowboat where there is a strong athlete on one side and a 5 year old on the other. The 5 year old isn't helping at all at that point.

    The 7850 is very fast on its own. While the A10 is a decent chip, if you are exceeding the abilities of the onboard graphics with a powerful graphics card, it doesn't make a lot of sense. At that point you should move to the FX line and go FX-4300 or FX-6300 (I like the 6300). The 6300 is going to be powerful enough that you wouldn't really need to jump to an i5 later, especially with a little bit of overclock.

  12. Yes that's all i need i this build because i have an atx/micro atx case and optical drive so a 250 budget without gpu

    and also what would be better phenom, fx, or i3 because now i dont know what to choose ;/
  13. I would pick the fx-6300, but arguments can be made for an i3 if you plan to upgrade to i5 later.

    Do you already have the 7850?
  14. twelve so the fx-6300 is slower than i5 or they are just about the same speed and make no difference?
  15. so if i was gonna choose Phenom why ? and is that a good build looks good and cheap

    in most cases you will not go past 4 gigs...8 is overkill as it is but it is so cheap 8 gigs get picked....16 gig will tend to be a waste of money.
  19. oh ok thanks
  20. oh ok thanks so the psu will reach the mobo connectors? and also can anyone give me cheap 3.0 mobo simillar price to that one thank you and a board that supports crossfire thx
