So motherboards have on board graphics, and now some CPUs have GPUs also. So if you put a CPU what comes with a GPU onto a motherboard with a on board GPU does it cause problems?

How does it work?

Will the computer select the best one to use?

For reference a HP ML110G7 with a G840 does not let you use the iGPU, you have to use the ancient ATi GPU on the board.

Well it was from another thread, and 2 things posted were

See how the motherboard has a HD 7000 series while the CPU has HD 7660D:confused:

When the board has a Trinity CPU installed it has 'built in' HD 7000 class graphics. IE different graphics for different models of CPU. The board also supports FM2 Athlon X4 CPU's. When one of these is installed there is no in-built graphics.
