Does anyone know what discrete GPU card I can use with a 4 core CPU AMD A8-5500 +Radeon HD7560D integrated, for hybrid crossfire/dual graphics? The discrete GPU card ,Radeon HD7450 which is a re-branded Radeon HD6450 came with the computer and I have since learnt that it is incompatible with the A8-5500 CPU,The GPU in the processor works better than this bottom of the line card they have installed because I have tested them both separately.The tech at HP gave me the runaround,patronized me,was condescending ,sarcastic,ect..ect...worst customer service ever,I kid you not. Any ideas? I'm willing to go to around $200 for a descent compatible card for Dual Graphics/Hybrid Crossfire.

Hi Jhayz, Yes I have looked at that, but it doesn't say what card I can use for dual graphics with the second generation A8-5500 processor and its HD7560D IGP, I don't want to buy the wrong card unless I'm sure its going to work.

This says it works with the HD 6570 and HD 6670.

I had looked at that and I saw that it was for the A8-3850 processor and because it wasn't on the list of 2nd generation AMD A series processors,I'm reluctant to buy one just to see if it works.Hence the confusion. I saw that a guy on another forum is going to use a HD6870 with an A8-5500! So it might be the cards that end with 70? I'm waiting for a reply from him to see if it all went well?
