Crossfire W/ APU or new graphics?

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hello, I just built my new computer about a month or two ago, and it's working flawlessly.
I can play any game I want fine, But it's just that I want to record. Battlefield 3 usually gets around 25-35 fps on relatively low settings, which is not as well as I expected it to be, but games like Black Ops 2 run no problem with 40+ FPS w/ fraps recording.

I have an AMD A8-3870K APU (4 cores @ 3.0GHZ, and an AMD Radeon HD 6550D Intergrated) I'm currently oc'ing my cpu to 3.2GHZ, and my ram is 1600mhz at default (4GB), and that's overclocked to 1888mhz (something like that) and my APU Can crossfire with a radeon hd 6670, radeon hd 6570, and a radeon hd 6450. If I do crossfire, I have my eyes on this.

What I need to know is if i'd be better off just getting a different graphics card altogether and abandon my intergrated graphics and just use a card.

Oh yeah I forgot to mention that I'm probably not going to pay more than $110 for a gpu.

To be honest with you Get a 6870 off ebay that card is amazing and handles black ops and black ops 2 maxed and battlefield 3 mid people are selling them for like 140 on ebay that would be you best bang for the buck are even a 6850
good luck to you hope this helped!
