Apu or discrete card
Mar 4, 2013, 3:46 PM
Hello, I just built a system with am AMD A6 5400 which has on board HD 6530d. I have an older pdi express Radeon 2400xt card. Would I have any benefit by using the discrete card?

The HD 6530d is better, there is no point using the 2400xt

No offense but I would have to argue that if you plan any significant gaming, there is not point to the 6530d either. Purchasing a new mid range discrete card would be your best option.
