Is there any reason i should force the igpu to be "always on" ? I heard that i will get increased performance in games , but i want to ask before doing it .
my gpu is geforce gt 440 , the igpu is geforce 7050 /nforce 630a , so they will use same drivers from nvidia
actualy i turned it on , and it only apears in the nvidia control panel as my 2nd gpu , but i cant plug my monitor in it (it keeps saying "no signal" ) still idk what it gives me ( only know that it takes 128 mb ram :X )
Because you're using the discrete GPU. Forget about the integrated GPU, it's of no use to you.

AFAIK, there was the 9300/730 chipset that could "hybrid sli" a 8500 or 8600 discrete card to improve performance. but i don't think that your system set up will benefit from enabling the mGPU with a dGPU.
unless you're using a multi monitor set up, just turn it off.
Btw i wanted to use the iGPU as primary and the GPU as secondary card cause i cant install Windows 8 Release Preview with the gt 440 - the screen is messed up with the GT 440 and im geting an error at "preparing" , everything is ok with the iGPU https://www.dropbox.com/sh/25f6trcjmgzgb27/ZVTlGuuXPb the last 2 pics are with the iGPU (the pics arent myne , but the problems are the same , the only thing is that im not geting that error from the last pick with the igpu)
I dont think you can help me with that , so ty for the answers !

remove the 440 and install W8. than AFTER installation, replace the 440 and see if you run into problems.
Idk but it worked and still works well , just windows 8 RP is making this problem [ my pc restarts when i reach the desktop on win 8 ( un oc card) and i dont have any problems on win 7 (oc card) i tried even to de-oc my processor ,but the results were the same]
