Hey guys I'm building a new machine for the upcoming MWO Mechwarrior Online video game running on the Crysis 3 engine. It says minimum requirements are 512mb video memory. I have a standalone Radeon X1300PRO 256mb DDR2 discreet GPU that was bought several years ago. I know this will not be enough to run the game. However, I know LucidLogix Virtu technology allows integrated graphics and standalone discreet cards to work efficiently together. I plan on buying the Intel 3rd gen Ivy Bridge Core i7-3770K processor with Intel HD4000 embedded graphics. I will also be using 2x4gb Patriot Viper Xtreme low latency 2400mHz memory sticks to support the onboard graphics. The Asus Maximus V Gene motherboard I'm going to use also has embedded graphics but I'm not going to bother with them.
My question is, is there a way to configure the BIOS to use the HD4000 Intel graphics with the Radeon X1300Pro to run MWO on Crysis 3 engine on minimal visual settings? I know Intel and Radeon graphics aren't supposed to work together. It's SLI or CrossfireX but not 1 radeon working togeher with an nVidia card. Right?
Or am I better off just selling the X1300Pro for whatever I can get for it and buy a cheap standalone discreet GPU? Do I need a card that is Direct X11 compatible? Please help I used to be really into computers and gaming but have fallen out a few years and now I am absolutely dying to play my favorite series of all time, Mechwarrior.
