    @op,
    buddy FX series are simple processors but A series are APU of llano series which have both CPU and GPU in a single chip.and trinity is the next version of llano which has piledriver cores.if i am right you can't crossfire llano's or trinity's inbuilt graphics with 6770 but you can crossfire with 6670.even my suggestions goes with trinity and couple it with 6670.you shouldn't have problem in gaming at 1080p with mid-high settings in this setup.
    here is the toms link for trinity desktop review,

    The first generation of The FX series is not so good for gaming. I would suggest anyone to wait for sometime and let the piledriver and trinity be launched, and then take your decision.

    Buddy please wait for trinity its release is so close.buy trinity and pair it with 6670.any other GFX card be it from AMD or nvidia will not support crossfire with the inbuilt GPU in APU.so it will be a waste to buy an APU if you are not using its GPU.so please wait for trinity."sabra ka phal meeta hota hai" .

    Hey, I read Trinity's review on Tom's and it is not a big leap in terms of perfomance in comparison Llanos.

    FX series + even a HD7770 blows any APUs away in terms of performence.

    yup bro more than sure that AMD or Nvidia are not going to provide crossfire support between APU and nvidia card..in case of AMD side the cards below 7670 are supported.

    I think I've not read your post properly anyway, the best possible discrete gpu Trinity can make a hybrid Cf is HD6670 ( correct me if wrong ) which makes trinity's gpu part a serious drawback IMO ..

    ^^ If you add anything over HD 6670, then the IGP will simply turned off. As a result the APU will be a simple Quad Core Processor which again means poor Performance/price ratio.

    @cilus and topgear,
    thanks for telling me the drawback.but it is not drawback for everyone.it is a draback for one who can buy higher performance cards and for those trinity is not a good option they should look for some good processors.trinity is only for those who wants cpu and gpu at 7k and wants a near descent(better say average) gaming pc at 20-25k.

    But the price of a Trinity APU - say the 5800K will be around ~8k and the current pricing of socket FM2 mobos are just too much ( and AMD is recommending A85 chipset mobo with 5800K ) .. so the the whole combo will cost around ~13-15k at-least.

    hmm...we have to wait and see the pricing but outside india i guess there is no problem as trinity costs $130 and x85 biostar mobo costs $85 and asus mobo costs around $95.

    @Rahul
    Wait for trinity a bit. If the pricing is right , it would be great.
    But if you can't wait , and want to buy now , get a g620/g630 and a 6670 (I think this should be within your budget )

    This is the reason why trinity might fail in India

    I was just reading through the post and thought this might help me as i am looking to puchase new processor+mobo....So if i have got this right (plz correct if i am wrong) that we can crossfire a discreet GPU with that of the embedded one of the APU. Previously i thought APU would be useless for me as i already have a discreet GPU (HD5670). Could any one please tell whether i would be able to do this with HD5670. And so in conclusion would it be worth waiting for trinity or should i go ahead and purchase suggested combo of Intel Core i5 2500 + Intel DH67BL. Oh and by the way my budget is 15k so if any better suggestion i would be very much greatfull.

    if your budget is 15k for only processor and mobo then go ahead and buy i5 and dh67 as you already have it.
    and about your inquiry yes you can pair your 5670 with the igp of llano.trinity has better graphics performance when compared to llano about 25-30% more.

    you better read this

    there is a somewhat complicated set of compatibility requirements that need to be addressed before Radeon Dual Graphics will work with A-series APUs. In short, the graphics controllers on the A8 (HD 6550D IGP) and A6-series (HD 6530D IGP) processors are compatible with any AMD graphics card based off of the Turks and Caicos cores (HD 6670, HD 6570 and HD 6450) while the HD 6410D IGP in the A4 branded APUs will only work with the HD 6450 and HD 6350 cards. The E2 series APUs aren’t compatible with Dual Graphics due to their entry level market positioning.
    and talking about Trinity - well, the APus gfx core has improved but same can't be said about the compatibility.
