Should i get Radeon HD 7660D integrated+6670 or upgrade to 7750 alone?

This is my computer: http://www.bestbuy.ca/en-CA/product/hewlett-packard-hp-pavilion-p7-1449-desktop-computer-amd-a10-5700-10gb-ram-1tb-hdd-windows-8-p7-1449/10226771.aspx?path=cd36f04e53e19314d62c3d0e74e04457en02
(although i got it for only $500)

i wanna upgrade my graphics card so should i crossfire the built in 7660D with the 6670? or should i just scrap the integrated 7660D and fully upgrade to just the 7750? will either of them even work on my computer (300 W)?
please someone help me because this topic has been driving me crazy since everyone is telling something different
p.s i dont want to spend more than $130 on the GPU
thanks :D

  1. upgrade to a 7770. Its around $120 after rebate and good price for performance. Low end cards in crossfire do not scale well.

    the stated power requirements are usually too high so you can get by with something lower than that. The 7750 has a requirement of 400w as well

    You can get this power supply: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16817139027


    So $110 for card +30 for psu puts you at $140. Only a tiny bit over budget

    the power supply is actually $50 so thats too much ($160 total)
  5. Actually after reading some stuff. The xfire option would probably be cheaper. So yea get the 6670 and the psu i mentioned because the 6670 recommends 400w as well

    its ok and thanks for ur help, but i read on a lot of sites that the 6670 (and i think the 7750, not sure though) only runs at 50-60 W, something like that so its doesnt need its own power connector and takes all the power it needs from the PSU
    but maybe ur right because the PSU has to be stronger since the 6670 takes an extra 50-60 W so my PSU has to be at least 350 W, looks like im gonna have to spend at least $150...great
    and any other upgrade i make (obviously besides the PSU) im gonna need a stronger PSU
  8. How much improvement do you need? You can get a 3Dmark11 of more than P2100 using the internal graphics of the AMD A10 (at stock rates it's around P1100). Adding a cheap 6670 to your system could get it to in excess of 3500. And I think you can add a further one as well.
  9. get the 6670 coz thats the best and most cost effective solution . no need to upgrade your psu either. it will work on 300 watt

    sorry but i dont know much about graphics cards, i just started researching them a few days ago so i dont know what 3Dmark11 is but i do know about benchmarks and i know that the 7750 had a much higher G3D mark than the 7660D+6670
  11. go for the HD 7750
