A8-3850 APU crossfire with HD6670

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I need some insight on amds new cpu+gpu chipsets? Basically im getting into a mini itx build.

Here is the list:
Mobo: ASRock A75M-ITX FM1 AMD A75
Cpu: AMD A8-3870K Unlocked Llano 3.0GHz Quad core
Ram: CORSAIR Vengeance 8GB
Gpu: ASUS EAH6670/DIS/1GD5 Radeon HD 6670 1GB 128-bit GDDR5
Psu: CORSAIR Builder Series CX430 V2 430w
Case: BitFenix Prodigy Midnight Black
reusing my 1tb hdd

Running games on my Yamakasi catleap q270 2560x1440.

This is a unique budget build totaling at $487.26 after shipping.

Here is someone on youtube who did some benchmarks with a similar build : http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nJqNByn2wjc

and another benchmark test on another forum as well here: http://community.futuremark.com/forum/showthread.php?166270-A8-3850-APU-crossfire-with-HD6670

My main concern is my fps with such high resolution with this setup.

Yes, high res, so gaming on medium to low would have to be a compromise. See if you can up the video card to a 7870 at minimum to maybe a 7950.

Thanks for your insight. Those cards are out of my budget sadly.

I would actually prefer getting a different mini-itx mobo that used FX AMD (am3, am3+) chips such as the phenom family but the power consumption seems to be too much for these boards. This is kinda a let down considering i already own the amd x4 955 phenom II just wish someone would create one like that, but i cant find any available on the market.

edit: Thanks again, im not very savvy on radeon gpu terminology, i always used nvidia
