i have a few questions if anyone can answer, how far have the crossfire drivers came, and is the 6 gb memory dual channel 3 GB sticks or a 4 GB stick and a 2 GB stick?

i would upgrade the monitor but that's not a option, and really couldn't afford it anyhow, and i upgraded the hdd to 7200 rpm over the 5600, not sure if that's exactly right on the one i upgraded from, but is that really a necessary?

  1. and once again, ty for your input!
  2. Why an A10 AND a 7670M?

    The only reason to get an A10 is that it's an APU - that it has decent inbuilt graphics, enough for light gaming.

    If you're getting a graphics card as well, then the A10 becomes a slow processor that's overpowered by other options at its price point.
  3. i was looking at the Intel laptops, but they start at 699$ before any customization, and i know intels integrated graphics suck bad!
  4. im always told that dedicated gpu is the way to go, i only play wow, but was wanting to be able to try others out, ive read about the 7660g on-board the a10 is a pretty decent onbaod gpu, but then ive been reading about the crossfire between 7660g and 7670m, and even though ive read mixed reviews, it sounds like something i could get behind!
