Hi guys! I'm back and I'm gonna stick here for longer than earlier. I'm upgrading my PC with Crossblade Ranger and A10 7700K, my question, or maybe seek of help, which GPU I should take for this rig? For now I have ASUS GTX 460. Which would be suitable for this CPU MoBo? Older R7 250 for hybrid crossfire or newer R9 and don't bother with APU's graphic?

Why do you go for a FM2 platform, if you want to add another gpu?

Im personally not a fan of crossfire but i tried myself quite some time ago (hd 5xxx).
But as the internal card is bound to Ramspeeds and scaling in the low fps is still a problem...
=> Go for one strong card.


And also i would have a look at the new GTX that jat came out.

My budget is kinda limited, don't know prices in USA but I have about 700-800PLN (roughly about 220-250USD) to spend. Still not sure should I stick with GTX or give a chance to Radeon, I had AMD GPU once and I was contented.

I see you hava agtx 460... I habe a 470 running @ 850Mhz (1075mV).
I think its still good for most games. Not sure what you want at the moment, but if you can hold out a little longer and save 50-100 dollar a good 970 will be available.

I must say that my ATI experiences are a little old. They where good when running but i always felt lagging behind with drivers. And i cant believe im still running fine with my 470.

Could you tell me why you go for FM socket?

Have a look at this:
