Hi,
I see some of the Core i3/i5 processors has a GPU on board. What type of motherboard should you select for this type of CPU? I guess one that doesn't have an integrated graphics card? I know they fit into a LGA 1156 socket, but if you add a new graphics card into the PCIe slot, what happens to the one on the CPU?
Thanks.

I suggestion find USB 3.0 and SATA 6GPBS MOBO..
now is CPGPU
so that mean no integrted chips on MOBO.
if you install GRAPHIC CARD...depend on your bios setting for use INTEL INTEGRATED or VGA

The i3 and the i5 6xx CPUs have the GPU on the CPU. If you want to take advantage of that, you'll need a socket 1156 motherboard that use chipset H55, H57 or Q57.
