The APU 5300 integrated graphics have a Core(7xx Mhz) and a speed of DDR3 Rams (like 1866Mhz).

When i buy a 6670 (1GB) which is DDR5 its deactivated the IGP?
To CrossFire I must buy card with DDR3 rams (like 6670 2GB DDR3)?

You will not see much of an improvement using a HD6450 Crossfired with your APU. If you want to do Crossfire, save some more money and get a HD6670.

However, you would be even better off if you did not Crossfire at all and used a single, stand alone, video card like a HD7770. That would mean saving more money but performance would be better than a Crossfired APU+GPU solution.

If you insist on getting a HD6450, get the one with the faster DDR5 memory. Remember, the APU memory (which uses your motherboard system memory) and your GPU memory are completely independent from one another.
