Currently I've the i5 3570K OCed to 4.5GHz with a HD 7850 graphics card, but now I don't use it for gaming anymore so I was thinking of selling the HD 7850 and use the HD 4000 onboard graphics.

I mainly use my computer for surfing the internet, Adobe Master Collection, Microsoft Office, Visual Studio and watch TV programme

What's your opinions?

Do not sell that 7850. Even if you use it just for surfing & TV Programmes, the other sofwares are GPU dependent and would really bottleneck the CPU when you are rendering or using the Illustrator & PS side by side

I'll only use Photoshop for resizing, convert and abit of render for images, and use Dreamweaver for editing HTML

If you're seriously not going to play games, then you really wouldn't need it. Not sure what HD 4000 graphics couldn't handle if you're not doing anything intense.

I really wouldn't do that. Not only the HD4000 is a rather weak GPU, its memory depends on how much and how fast of the system memory you have available.
