just wondering if a mother board with integrated graphics would mess with the graphics of an AMD APU. i want to get the a10 6800k and i was going to use this board: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

It says under the features section that it has Built-in AMD Radeon HD 7000 series graphics. would the computer automatically use that integrated graphics, or would it use the APU integrated graphics? could i turn the motherboard graphics off if i need to?

The board above and so does any other FM2 motherboards doesn't have an integrated graphic unit. The image outputs on the back of the board are used to transfer graphic from the IGP inside APU ( 6800k, in this case ) to monitors, acting like bridges and nothing more.

Since FM2 motherboard are made to be used with Trinity APUs, which hold HD7000 IGPs, motherboard manufacturers often state that their motherboard have " Built-in AMD Radeon HD 7000 series graphics", which is wrong and confused many people. They should know that there are FM2 CPUs without an IGP ( athlon ii x4 740/750k ) and if you put one of them on a FM2 motherboard then image outputs on the back won't have any use.

oh okay. but the 6800k has 8000 series graphics. will it still work on that board properly?

Both the 6800k and that motherboard utilize the FM2 socket, therefor they will work with each other normally.
