Gigabyte GA-B85M-D3H motherboard (MB) with installed
GTX770 discrete video card. Both MB and video card have sockets to connect monitors.
Are these sockets equivalent?
For example, if I play resource-consuming 3D game on a monitor, connected to MB, will it display what discrete card draws? I.e. can discrete card "draw" to a monitor, connected to MB?
Apparently the answer is "yes", but I wish explicit confirmation.
If the answer is "no" then how can I control this? For example, if I run a video game, how do I tell this game to use discrete graphics?
Operating system (Windows) does not distinguish video cards. In settings I have two monitors and can setup them to display one big desktop. No any setting to select video card.
I can even play movie and drag window so that it shows partially on one screen and partially on another.
In this case half a video will be displayed by one card and another half by another?
