what can i do with my disabled gpu?

post #1 of 5
Thread Starter 
hey guys i just installed a "new" video card into my computer and i was just wondering if i can make the disabled onboard graphics processor of any use. the "new" video card is the ati x1600 pro and my motherboard is the MSI 785 gm-e51. I tried setting up my disabled onboard gpu and my graphics card to work with hybrid sli, but it didn't work any suggestions towards what i can do with this unused gpu???

If you have a second monitor you could always just plug it into that. Should help to reduce the load on the primary card (IE; better idle temperatures as well as lower 2D clocks). That's what I do with my 6870 now so it doesn't idle at 52C.

You can actually Fold on that IGP... it just won't generate many points.

You can do that? I never even thought of that.
