advice/help with 5800k and crossfire

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hi and thanks in advance for any help. i bought a fm2+ gigabyte sniper motherboard awhile back and just recently picked up a 5800k. i have a couple questions because this is my first apu build.

system specs...
5800k
gigabyte sniper a88x
8 gigs crucial 1866
seagate sshd 1tb
corsair hx750 psu

i was wondering if crossfire with a 6670 is worth it? and if so, which cards to look at? i dont know if i should go with ddr3 or ddr5. i'm also guessing a 1 gig card?

this pc will mostly be for mindcraft ,cod,and surfing.

My opinion from personal experience? Dual graphics (igpu+6670) isn't worthwhile. Worst case scenario, performance will be worst than just a 6670 and you'll get awful microstutter-best case you'll get smooth gameplay but at settings and framerates similar to that 6670. I would either overclock that iGPU and the ram as high as they get, or leave them be and buy a discreet gpu. Or wait for kaveri and swap the 5800k for an 7850k if reviews are good.

I'm running an fm2 a85xa-g65 with an a10-6800k and 2 6870s in CF. waiting on kaveri reviews and hopefully plan on swapping for one. I'd say wait a bit and see how it goes
