Using integrated Video while also using a discrete GPU

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
I was wondering if any of the 1150/1155 platforms would be able to support the following kind of setup - folding on a discrete GPU or two and the CPU, all while allowing the integrated video to run the monitor and have a more smooth basic function (i.e. web browsing, email, facebook, etc.)

I'm a dedicated folder, and don't really game on most of my builds. Most of my rigs are basically designed for folding, and I prefer 24/7 folding. Also, I don't like having to always pause then re-start my clients. Call it lazy, or unwillingness to lose a few PPD.

Anyhow, thanks in advance for the replies! biggrin.gif

Hopefully I can help here as I don't folder, but I have used multiple monitors across GPUs & on-video for a while. With that being said, I have been able to run 1080p videos, web browsers, messaging applications, and monitoring software on my on-board video while gaming or using resource-applications without a problem. If you aren't stressing your computer too much, as in everything is lagging then it will work. Also, with the current chip set, you can run 3 monitors off the motherboard alone!
