If you already have it, use it. What's your WEI scores for Aero and Graphics with the card?

The alienware is a step above the mainstream dell.
Hey Gene, ya got too many tabs open.
Not really, that was from my cell phone. I don't know how my reply got to the wrong thread!

Should you remove the graphics card? I would say: No.

The PC works with the graphics card, right?

So your question is really: "Why won't my rig run on only the i7 integrated graphics?"

I would check in the BIOS settings. If the board is capable of using integrated graphics you should have a setting for it.

However on many boards the switching is automatic. If you install a graphics card the on-board graphics chip is automatically switched to disabled. I don't know if that would apply to the i7 graphics yet.

Are you suggesting the onboard graphics would outperform the 5570?

I'm at a loss as to why you'd suggest it would "pick up speed" over the 5570. You are looking at one small spec when comparing these two graphics solutions instead of overall performance.

You are absolutely right about the H67. I didn't do enough homework before I decided on the motherboard. This is my first build. I did buy the 2600k because it was unlocked. I focused on price and 1155 socket. This motherboard works perfectly but will not do what I want. I have since decided also that I wish I had purchased 4 ram slots instead of 2 because 4 gig ram chips are cheaper than 8 gig chips significantly. I may purchase a Z68 with 4 slots and add 2 more 4gig chips. I don't have a very high end card. I know the graphics on the chip are disabled because I ran ADPI64 test. I have a wireless adapter on order that should arrive tomorrow. While I am installing that I will take the graphics card out and run WEI. WEI reports 6.7 rating now. If the rating goes down I will know my performance is better with the card. If it goes up its better without the card. I do play a lot of games. I may also upgrade for a little higher end card priced between 100-200 dollars.

WEI is the last thing you should base any performance difference on.

I can download 3D Mark and test with that then, thank you.

I'd suggest that you also consider what tasks you're using your computer for. The Intel graphics has the Quick Sync technology which is supposed to be exceptional for things like video transcoding. For most other tasks, a reasonably good graphics card would probably easily surpass the on board video.

Could a high-end discrete graphics card beat the Quick Sync technology in video transcoding? I don't know, but there is probably some data out there somewhere to answer that.
Edit: Here's an opinion on that from the AnandTech article referenced above:
"Quick Sync is just awesome. It's simply the best way to get videos onto your smartphone or tablet. Not only do you get most if not all of the quality of a software based transcode, you get performance that's better than what high-end discrete GPUs are able to offer. If you do a lot of video transcoding onto portable devices, Sandy Bridge will be worth the upgrade for Quick Sync alone."
