Hi guys

I have a problem with my onboard graphics card.
Yesterday i asked here why my video ports on my mobo didn't work. And then i found out that i had to select it as the main graphics card in the bios. After i did that, the onboard graphics card was recognized by windows and i could use both (onboard and pci-e graphics card) the video ports. But now i can't max out my games, because they only see my onboard graphics card. But if i select my gtx card as the primary card in the bios, i can't use the video ports on my mobo. So i have to find a way to be able to use them both at the same time, but only my gtx card for my games.

Why do you want to use the onboard, if you have the gtx? Most mobo don't support the use of onboard and pci-e cards at the same time and as long as you don't have three or four monitors, it makes no sense th use both.

actually i don't need it but the reason i want them both is, that i want to expand my desktop with 2 screens, so my little brother can watch his cartoon on our tv while i am busy with my own businnes on my own monitor. And until now it was possible till i decided to game. And that's where the problem is. I can play games, but on a low resolution, because it can't find my gtx780.

Thanks for your answer bro :)

Select the gtx as the primary card an connect your monitor and the TV to it. That's how it works.

this solved it for half. I selected it as the primary card, but then the video ports on the mobo didn't work, except the vga port. For some reason, the vga port is the only port that works while the gtx is the primary card. (The others aren't working.) When i connect my computer with a vga cable, it temporary switches to the onboard card (so i can't play games on high res) and then when i plug it off and connect it with the hdmi cable it switches to the gtx. And that's perfect for me.

Thanks for your answer bro :)

I still don't understand, what you need the mobo ports for and why you don't use the gtx for all displays, but that might be your secret.
