    hello everyone,
    i have a simple question that i cant really seem to find an answer for, i am looking into buying an GA-A75-UD4H and going to pair it with a AMD A8-Series 3870K. Now i know you can crossfire the mobo graphics with a discreet card and vice versa with the apu but would you be able to crossfire the onboard graphics with the apu graphics? considering they are both 6000 series gpu's? thanks in advance.

    no as video slot overides onboard video so onboard video doesn't work when videocard installed.

    ok thanks ddp, so the graphics chip on the apu is considered an actual graphics card?

    oh sorry, just seen you replied...an APU is a CPU and GPU in one single chip...that's why I wanted to know if i could crossfire the APU's gPu and the onboard video of the motherboard.

    nope as slot card overrides onboard video.
