As far as I understood, it happens automatically. I'm sure you can disable it, but I don't believe it is necessary.

As I see that U have an 785 NB... then u have CrossFireX support..( Internal And GPU Work together giving much better Performance )
Why Would U wanna stop that?????? :sarcastic: 
If u do there is an option is BIOS... Disable Hybrid Graphics ............ then it will turn off..................................................................

I believe you are talking about hybrid crossfire. I've never found anything that works with the 785g chipset - I do have hybrid crossfire working on a 780g, but it only works with 3450 and below - the higher end cards, like the 4850 will disable it altogether.

Thats odd because I just assembled one of my frinds comp. with hd 4650 and the m/b NB was also 785 G MSI Board last week. The CrossFireX Works fine with 785G Chip....... I suggest u talk to the board manufacturer [I.E. MSI/Gigabyte/ASUS] or the AMD about this...........

Everything that I've read says that cards like the 4650 will work, but it will work as a discreet GPU. The ones that I've seen listed as working in an actual hybrid mode are the 3450/3470.

It certainly works, but is discreet - that's what I've seen in my experience and reading. Just what I've found...

the only cards that work with Hybrid Crossfire(X) are the low end 2400/3400 series with the IGP's, so its not worth it
