I got an hdmi cable (cause it was $3 on newegg) but forgot this graphics card has mini hdmi... then I realized.. my mobo has a hdmi port, so I plugged it in there. In all the years, I've never wondered or tested this: Can the graphics card still do all the processing if it's not the one connected ?

Nope, the processing will be done by your integrated graphics card.

But are you sure it's a mini hdmi port and not a displayport on your GPU?

yeah it's hdmi. That would be sad if there was a display port and no hdmi lol.

so then my cpu is running everything ?

Yes. Simple solution, buy an HDMI-mini to HDMI adapter. Get that smile back!
