I currently have my monitor plugged into the system's HDMI port which I believe connects to the integrated graphics, but I'm not sure if I should have it plugged into my video card directly, instead?

Does it switch to the video card when it needs to?

Which should I be using here?

Any help or advice here would be great, thanks.

It should be switching by itself. Mine had problems with the graphics switching out of the box. I ended up installing the newest Nvidia drivers (301.42 I think) and disabling Optimus. On a laptop I understand why it's a good thing, but on a desktop it's not really needed and is just a hassle IMHO.

Ok, so I updated the driver to the latest, which was 301.42 but now for some reason it thinks that I have 2 displays connected and lets my mouse go way off screen even thought there's nothing there. lol

I've rolled back the drivers and re-installed 301.42 again but same result.
Advice anyone? lol

You could try right clicking and selecting screen resolution and messing with the settings there.

When I go there, there's screen 1 and 2 which I can move around and under the display tab there's 1. NVD SIM DISP and then my samsung monitor as #2.

Anyway I can get rid of the NVD SIM DISP???
