my brothers pc is using a FM2 socket motherboard with a athlon 750k black, and a gtx550ti. he wants to upgrade his cpu and his graphics card. but doesnt want to buy a new motherboard. my question is with amd new fm2 apu's (A SERIES) is it a good idea to buy one and run it with a 660 superclocked? or will it being a apu mixed with gpu bottle neck the system at all? or should i change the motherboard to am3+ and get a normal cpu with the card. please help!
I'd recommend switching the motherboard to am3+ because it opens so many paths for upgrading, and I don't believe AMD APU and Nvidia GPU mix well. Also, if he keeps the FM2 motherboard he can only get APU's in the future and APU's don't run nearly as well as a CPU and GPU, so I recommend just switching the socket over to am3+
