Yes, apart from that your RAM will also get a little bit stressed, your CPU will be stressed out during a playback of 720p or 1080p HD Movies.

Using an onboard GPU doesn't affect the life of your computer.

Don't think of it that way.
Rather than thinking that 'stressing' your PC might break something, think of it as stressing the PC will expose an existing problem.

"Stressing" in a technical sense just means to make a device work hard but within the upper limits of it's capabilities. A functioning device should perform to 100% of it's design capabilities without failure. Failure indicates a problem with the device or system that must be addressed.

Home Builders have been using a programs like Prime95 on new builds just for that reason.

'Failure' does not always mean blink-off-dead. It usually means a crash, recoverable by restarting.
If a device were so defective that it did go blink-off-dead then I would want to know of that ticking time bomb sooner rather than later.

In the case of your on-board graphics chip, if you push it beyond it's capabilities you will get performance issues in the game and possibly a freeze or crash, but not smoke or flames!
Experiment! Have some fun with that thing!

No, play your games. Any of them. Play them at normal settings. If they look crappy or stutter or become annoying then either turn the settings down, or stop playing those games.

Make note of the games you cannot play enjoyably and then check their minimum system requirements. This will give you information on the capabilities of your machine, and what hardware you would need if you wanted to upgrade.

The life of a mechanical device may be shortened if put under undue stress for extended periods of time. But a CPU is not a mechanical device. As long as temperatures are kept within safe limits a CPU can operate with usage for for extended periods of time with no ill effects. Many CPUs are busy 24/7 for years on end without failure. CPU failures, in the sense that they are damaged, are quite rare. They are actually one of the most reliable components of a computer.

Even when CPU temperatures reach unsafe limits the usual result is that it shuts itself down or throttles back the clock rate to control the temperature, not a CPU failure.

By far the biggest problem with CPUs is that they become obsolete and no longer meet the requirements of modern software, particularly games.

You've gone from NEVER going to buy a video card to when I get a video card.

Let's hope you didn't end up buying a generic PSU after all.

You've also been told in another thread that as long as CPU is within the normal temperature range, it is going to be fine. Heat is not a killer, it's excess voltage. You can run your game using the onboard GPU for 24 hours a day, seven days a week as long you're temperature is fine.


You are worrying too much.
