That configuration won't work (only one of those GPUs can be used) but you don't need to use the onboard since that video card supports multiple monitors. COnnect both monitors to different ouputs on the card.

Although it may come down to the motherboard whether you can or not, thats what I'm doing on my 3570k system.

You could just plug it in and see if it works.

Interesting. Are you sure it's actually using the onboard video to do the work as opposed to just copying the frame buffer for the second output?

Not sure on that, but I do know that something (which I suspect is the iGPU) is taking its own bite from my RAM.
How could I test if the iGPU is at work? I assume dragging Furmark onto the iGPU screen isnt going to cut it :lol:
