Using dedicated gpu over integrated

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
Hey!

Didn't really know where to post this.. anyway

I'm running 5800k cpu with the integrated gpu. I ordered gtx670, arrives tommorow..

So I'm wondering can I just put in my gtx670 and start using it? There won't be any problems that my system is thinking that it's still running the integrated gpu? Just wondering, since I have 0 clues.

Just plug whatever cable you use into the 670, install the drivers and you're good to go!

You can actually but if it does not work, kindly check the video section on your motherboard's BIOS, then setting it to auto so that it'll auto detect if there is an external GPU installed and would revert to integrated when you don't have it installed.

Or to be safe you can just disable the integrated video from the BIOS options.

Don't forget to download and install the latest GPU drivers for your new card.

Probably just install drivers and it should be fine. GPU is the easiest to install PC component, can't do much wrong (except maybe put a power hungry GPU in a OEM PC with a crappy PSU).

Oh, and put the monitor cable in the GPU port not the mobo port of course smile.gif.

Should just be plug & play, if you run windows 7 or 8 it will download drivers automatically. But you are better off downloading the newest drivers directly from NVidia, as windows update is usually has dated drivers.
