    Hello there!

    I'm looking to improve my computers gaming capabilities so I can play more recent, graphics intensive games (Farcry 3 for example).

    My APU only has 512mb for graphics processing, which I fear would be far from sufficient enough to play these new games on decent settings with an average FPS.

    So my question is; how do I crossfire and what will crossfire with my specs?

    Thanks!

    You'll want to use an HD 6670 as that is the fastest graphics card you can hybrid crossfire with. Skipping crossfire and grabbing a 7770/7850 would be a lot better, though.

    You can use any graphics card you want the the platform. 6670 will crossfire but nothing above. JSTN recommended one of the best bang for the buck(7770) and either you listed will work. The 7770 will be 4 x better than crossfiring an 6670 too.

    Probably not quite 4x, but they are right, you are better off getting a 7770 ($100-120 I believe)
