I have an old MSI 9600GT 512mb DDR3 GPU card running on PCIe 2.0 that I have lying around and I thought of using it for a new PC setup running the Asustek P8Z77-V LGA 1155 Motherboard with an i7-3770k chip.
Problem is the the 9600GT has 2 DVI ports while the P8Z77-V motherboard has HDMI and displayport output. Im intending to buy a Dell U2412M monitor which has a DVI-D(no idea if its the same as DVI or not) input and a displayport input.
My question is: if I connect the motherboard's displayport output to the monitor's displayport input, would I be utilizing the GPU or simply bypassing it and using the inbuilt Intel HD4000 graphics?
This issue never occurred to me in my previous custom PC build...
