  1. Hello, I have a quesiton about Onboard GFX
    An Intel Core i5 3570K HAS an Integated GPU
    There are motherboards that have Integrated GPU also
    A) Can I use BOTH of them for gaming? (I know integated are bad, the question is "theoritical" :D
    B) Can I use BOTH of them plus an integrated one?
    Thanks

    In the case of the i5's, the integrated GPU is the on-board GPU.

    In other words, they are using Intel HD Graphics which requires a motherboard with the correct on-board hardware to utilize the HD Graphics component of the i5 CPU.

    Of course, for any serious 3D gaming, you'd still prefer getting a discrete video card.

    I hope that makes sense!
