the card is: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...



and the power supply is:http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

Both the components will fit into your case. Where do you experience the problem on your screen?

It's windows itself i believe. Right now im using the onboard graphics with the A6 processor. but whenever i click 120hz in Catalyst Control center it turns the resolution down to 1024x768 @ 120hz and will only run 60hz at 1080p

Two possibilities are the inboard graphics cannot support the 120hz refresh rate or your monitor doesnot support 120Hz refresh rate and according to the model no. you specified it does support. Just double check it.
Wait for the 570 card and then try it out.

Just to be clear I would be very careful with buying a graphics card with the A series processors from AMD. I have a friend who bought a store bought computer that was one of AMD's A series processors. She bought a new power supply and a new graphics card like you suggested however was unable to use the card her bios would not allow her to change her adapter to pci express it was set to onboard so that I would check firstly that you can do that before considering.

through DVI it supports 120Hz no problem, so wait for your GFX as Xttony said.

Yea a 570 can handle a 120hz monitor easy but the money you would spend on a 570 would probably be better spend on something like a gtx660ti at this point as the price point is probably very close.

If you buy a motherboard you should be in the clear in terms of being able to use a new graphics card.

Are you using a dual-link DVI cable?

Is your DVI port on your graphics card or integrated graphics DVI port on the motherboard a dual-link DVI port?

You'll need to satisfy both of the above to get 120 Hz @ 1080p working.

With his 570 he has ordered it will surely come with a Dual link DVI. There is a good chance his current onboard doesn't have it I wouldn't expect it to.

Good good :)  Just remember to use the Dual link DVI cord if you don't have one you'll need to get one its the one with all the pins.
