The Big List of mobile CPU benchmarks
throws in a few desktop CPUs for comparison.
In that list the A6-3400M (1.4Ghz turbo 2.3Ghz) is ranked #142 and a well known desktop CPU C2Q Q6600 (2.4ghz) is ranked #67 and C2D E6600 (2.4Ghz) ranked #95. After AMD fixed that infamous TLB bug in the original Agena CPUs with the B3 steppings they never got the respect they probably deserved, mostly because the competition had that Q6600 that did an awesome job overclocking (and for a few other reasons). But if you look at the stock performance the Phenom X9750 (2.4Ghz) and X9850 BE (2.5Ghz) weren't always that far off from the Q6600.

On that chart the A6-3400M would probably slot in under the C2D 6750.
It's not that the A6-3400M is bad. I just think you have the better CPU and the desktop HD 5770 GPU is a big
improvement over the laptop HD 6650M.HD 6650M (even with hybrid Crossfire) is roughly between a desktop HD Radeon HD 5570 and Radeon HD 5670 (closer to the 5570)
. A Nvidia GeForce GT 430 has more GPU power than the HD 6550M
