Disabling 4770K Graphics?

post #1 of 7
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, I finally just got my EVGA GTX 770 in the mail and I'm getting ready to install. I just had a couple questions regarding the integrated graphics I have been using from the 4770k.

1) I'm pretty sure I read the integrated graphics will automatically disable once another card is installed. Can anyone tell me if this is true?

2) Do I need to remove the drivers I installed for the integrated graphics like I would for a standard video card replacement? Or am I safe to just go ahead and install the new card like I would for a first time build?

Cheers!

1) It should Auto Disable

2) Go ahead and install the card's drivers as if you were installing this card for the first time.

Unconfirmed, but I get random reboots and fps drops when I explicitly disable Intel graphics in BIOS. After playing BF3 for a few hours, the consistent 75 fps (limited to my monitor oc) would drop to 45-50 and hang there. My Windows power management is set to Performance and my NVidia setting is Maximum Performance Preferred.

When my FPS drops and becomes unbearable, GPU-Z would often report my GTX 660's stuck at PCIe @x1 3.0. I've updated to F7 BIOS, and still get the random reboots and fps drops, with Intel graphics explicitly disabled. For now, I'm leaving it on to test some more.

I have a i7-3770K, but I had to disable the onboard GPU in the motherboard BIOS because it causes a weird bug with Shift 2 Unleashed's idiotic DRM if you don't. On my 3770K, the onboard GPU was always there in my hardware manager until I did this.

With my OC, if I disable the iGPU, Windows will reboot on startup always... for now, I just leave it enabled with minimal memory settings. This is odd. I have F8 BIOS.
