Assuming I am using the following equipment...
- motherboard with HDMI/DVI & no embedded graphics
- discrete graphics card (nVidia or ATI) on PCI-E slot
- Intel CPU with integrated graphics
...where should I plug my monitor into the computer?
Presumably, I'll get the fastest speed on games connected directly to the graphics card. But there is also power savings when connecting to the motherboard and accessing the Intel on-board graphics.
I've read that some motherboards can switch automatically between the Intel graphics and discrete graphics. Is that something that works well, and where do I connect the monitor to enable that?
