Hello i have seen this post http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/349112-10-5800k-cro... 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 : a10 7850

you can only crossfire A10 with 6670. get a FX or i3 for the same price and they work better with 7850.

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.

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.

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.

Are those the only parts you need for that 250 budget?

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?

twelve so the fx-6300 is slower than i5 or they are just about the same speed and make no difference?

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.
