I just built myself a low budget "gaming" rig. So far I'm quite happy about it. But I was just thinking about getting myself a graphics card to get a better fps out of the newer games I have. I was thinking about either buying:
Asus AMD Radeon HD 6670, 1GB DDR3
And going for the hybrid crossfire or
Sapphire AMD Radeon HD 7850, 1GB GDDR5
Which would be twice the price of a 6670 and would kinda ruin the fact of actually having bought A-10 in the first place...
So does anyone have any good experiences to say about that hybrid or should I really go for the 7850?
Other parts of my computer:
Cpu: See the title
Motherboard: Asus F2A85-M PRO
Ram: Kingston HyperX 2x4GB, DDR3 1600Mhz
If you have a high resolution monitor and want to play games on meg/high i would suggest getting the 7850. On the other hand, getting the 6670 will boost your performance about 20-30%. Keep in mind that hybrid crossfire only works in some games.
Hybrid crossfire has pretty crappy drivers. Much of the time it does not work and many times you will get less performance that will just the dedicated card, especially on cpu heavy games where running the igp will cause the cpu to deactivate turbo.
