Intergrated Motherboard graphics question

So I am looking to purchase a new motherboard; http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16813131837
and CPU; http://www.newegg.ca/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819115233
and my current GPU is a gtx 680

Here's my question:
Since this motherboard has intergrated VGA, DVI, HDMI, and Displayport Ports, will I get less performance out of my CPU/GPU, even if my monitors are connected to my GPU? If so, is there a way to disable these ports. My buddy told me not to buy that motherboard because half of my CPU power will be going to feed those ports. Thanks for the advice and help in advance.

  1. I have read that in the bios I can change the "Primary Graphics Adaptor" to PCI-E (my gpu) Would that count as disabling?
  2. The CPU's have a GPU built in(not the motherboard). No the cpu does not waste any processing power supporting the video ports(that's what the built in GPU is for).

    Yes setting the video to default to the pci-e will disable the built in video.

    You'll be happy with that combination.

    Thanks very much for your help. The last thing I wanted is being gimped by 4 extra ports that I'm never going to even use. Cheers!
