Intel HD Graphics 2000 confusion

Hi all,

I am building a budget photo and video editing rig.

I have selected the i 3 2120 processor with has Intel HD Graphics 2000 and Asus or Gigabyte H61 Motherboard.

I am not buying a graphics card now and am planning to rely on Intel HD Graphics 2000 for photo and video editing.

Confusion is: H61 motherboards also have integrated graphics card. In the absence of a discrete graphics card, will I be using the Intel HD Graphics 2000 onboard the CPU or the graphics card available with the H61 motherboard? And how?

  1. H61 boards do not have IGP, they simply expose the CPU IGP's outputs just like all other LGA1155 chipsets.

    thanks!

    But I have heard and read they have..please correct me if I am wrong.

    I have selected the two mentioned below. Both have mentioned about Integrated Graphics card. Please check the links and advice.

    ASUS P8H61-M LX Motherboard

    Gigabyte GA-H61M-D2H Motherboard

  3. The only IGP present on those board is whatever is provided by the CPU. Since nearly all LGA1155 CPUs have IGP, all LGA1155 boards can claim to have IGP support even though there are no IGP functions on the boards themselves other than the output port drivers provided by the chipset and the physical ports on the IO plate.
  4. There is no built in GPU on the 1155 boards, only the outputs. If you have a 2550k with IGP disabled those ports on the mainboard are worthless.
  5. when it says integrated graphics card| Yes, im assuming it means support for integrated gpu
  6. thanks everyone for your help!
