Connect display to GPU. It's not worth using integrated graphics anyway, since graphics cards don't use much power when not in use (like not playing games).

You need at least a Z68-ap-d3 from Gigabyte so you can connect your monitor to the HDMI port in the backpanel of the motherboard, and after enabling Lucid virtu you will be able to use the integrated GPU in your Sandybridge processor for HD videos or encoding (Qsync) and also using your high end GPU more demanding games ( without the need to connect your monitor to your GPU )
