increase ram speed or set up dual gpu

Motherboard Name Asus F2A85-M LE
CPU Type QuadCore AMD A8-5600K, 4321 MHz (43 x 100)
Memory Speed DDR3-1600 (800 MHz) (in one slot of two)
Memory Bus Width 64-bit

Hi, on a budget and want to do some 3D projects in Adobe and Blender

Do i increase ram to DDR3-2133 (recommended vendors) (£80) or buy a Gigabyte HD 6570 2GB DDR3 (£ 43.49) and run crossfire, essentially is the APU HD 7560D sharing faster Ram better than dual graphics combo. Alternatively would upgrading to AMD APU A10 6800K (£115) better the two ideas above?

There is so much speculation around APU & Ram speeds & Dual GPU vs NVidai Cuda cards (650).

Many thanks

  1. I'd get a better APU, 3D projects require good CPU performance first of all, since you are pretty much locked in into getting APU your motherboard, then I think you should get the best one of them.

    you will need both crossfire with bad ram no benefit especially when using graphics programs. you will need a lot of RAMs.
