Hello,

M PC currently has an I5 3470 and an Radeon 7950 GPU. I was curious as how would hardware/drivers would work in such a system when trying to use the integrated GPU. Apart from enabling the GPU from BIOS and plugging the monitor to the MB connector what else is there that I should know?

- drivers: installing them, will they conflict with the Radeon drivers?
- if the Radeon GPU is still physically connected and powered by the system will there be any issues?

Basically this is how I see it so far: enable integrated GPU, switch to MB connector and repower up the system, access Windows and install the drivers (maybe disable the old ones, hope I don't have to uninstall them). Operate as normal (hopefully)?

The drivers won't conflict with the CCC and there won't be a problem if the AMD card is connected to your system
