Ok, so I have built my computer everything is connected. My processor has onboard graphics, but I also installed a dedicated GPU (GTX 650ti).
So my question is do i plug my HDMI from my dedicated or my integrated into my monitor?

plug it in the dedicated. Should give you a signal and then once you download the drivers you don't have to switch connectors.

yep, cable goes from monitor to GPU. You shouldn't need to use your CPU's at all, unless you are running into problems getting a display from your card. So just install everything normally, plug the cord into the dedicated and turn it on.
