Im wondering what i might need to do in order to get "proper" dual monitors on a Win 8 64 bit machine with Intel 4770-K backed graphics... not discreet card yet. I was under the impression that it supported dual monitors as discreet devices?

If I plug monitors into the display port and the hdmi i get picture on both but it's a mirrored desktop and only one screen shows up in Screen Resolution settings of Windows 8 even after clicking detect.

Try:

Hit Windows+P and choose Extend.

If this doesn't work, it seems to be driver issue. Download and install Intel's latest drivers and try again.

Windows+P says I can't project. Am looking for driver updates now. –  rism Jul 7 '13 at 14:03

Ok so thats a bit embarrassing. It really was that easy, install the drivers. Prior to post, I installed everything (Intel) on MB disk and went to intel site to get latest drivers but the mistake I made was in only getting "processor" drivers. What I also needed to do and what ur answer prompted me to do was also go to the Intel "Graphics" download centre and get drivers for the 4600 as the "Processor" bundle of drivers apparently does not include these. All sorted now tho so many thanks. Also for anyone else, the Intel Driver Update Utility failed for me so had to manually select drivers –  rism Jul 8 '13 at 4:17
