Windows 7: Help w/intergrated graphics on cpu i72600k

Help w/intergrated graphics on cpu i7 2600k

I don't quite understand how to take advantage of Intel® HD Graphics 3000 built into the i7 2600k processor. I know mine is inactive. I wonder if it is because my motherboard is H67 or because I have a graphics card installed? I also wish to know the purpose of the Intel® HD Graphics 3000. Is it to replace the need of a graphics card or to work in conjunction with a graphics card or is it for better performance if there is no graphics card. I have searched the web and haven't found a definitive answer.

Replies will be appreciated. Thank you

As I undertand it, it was so you don't have to buy a graphics card. I think it is one or the other.
