I know I did when I first built the PC but I had to reinstall Windows so I might have forgotten to install the AMD chipset drivers. I sure hope that is the problem because this is so frustrating! I thought this build was going to be a beast - hopefully it still will be!
In AMD CCC main page, you can click on "Information", you'll see driver rev. If it is 12.3 rev, it should be the latest driver.....if it is not 12.3 rev, you can update it from here- Graphics Drivers & Software

I also have another question, would there be a significant benefit to adding the 6670 1GB card to this build? I am fairly happy with the performance I'm getting, but I just want it to be better. For example, I don't want to use DSplayer but when I use the stock player with DXVA turned on I get green artifacts for very highbitrate x264 movies. When I have DXVA turned off I don't get any artifacts but it almost needs to buffer - sound plays perfect but video struggles for a few secs and then catches up. I'm on wired network streaming from ReadyNas unit. I'm just wondering if adding the 6670 and using crossfire with the onboard 6650 would significantly improve my performance. Thanks for responding so quickly, you guys have been great on this forum.
If you want more graphic power, you can certainly do that. The nice thing about AMD APU, you can crossfire it and it'll work like a single GPU but more powerful graphic with crossfire.....here is a list of discrete GPU's that can be used to crossfire with APU iGPU.....AMD Radeon Dual Graphics
