Hi to community, this is my first post,

and im asking as i have not found another reference to my question.
I have a desktop build with 4790K, and one gpu the GTX 960.
I have dual-boot hackintosh, and in the recent times, nvidia web drivers stopped working on Mojave, and i need macOS for working.
Instead of booting on GTX 960, i can boot hackintosh with 4600 as can natively support it.

My question is, on windows 10 can i have connected my display on MotherBoard intel graphics (HDMI) so to use Intel's graphics for browsing and etc, but when i want to play some games instead of connceting and disconnecting the cables, can i use the GTX just to compute the game graphics and transfer the image to Intel's so to have always connected my display to MoBo but choose nvidia's as processor?

Thank you in advance.

The answer is YES. Linus did it using a mining card as the games processor with the output from the onboard video out port.

So yes, i mean i understand that this is choppy or whatever, but its seems to working!
Also as i dont have access to modified drivers (as i have to pay the Chinese guy who is selling the gpus,) i found from linus

here, how can i modified the latest drivers based on my PCI ven, as i have 960 and not 1060.
I'll give it a try in weekend that i'll have time and i'll post the results.
But thanks i would never think of linus video (that i already had watched the exact video)

Thank you for your answers guys.
 
Short answer, NO.
Long answer, NO.

The dedicated GPU (960) if no HDMI/VGA/ DVI/ DP is connected to it, can only do specific things that does not offer help with games except from PhysX. It is useless in your case.
 
Short answer, YES.
Long answer, YES.

Windows 10 graphics settings have a new option,well new compared to windows 8, that allows you to use a different GPU as the output, down side is you have to do this for every program you want to use your discrete GPU with.

If you get the same driver for both options like in the video it means there is something wrong with the installed drivers, it should give you an options with the hd 4600 and one with the gtx960.

This changes what GPU will be used (when multiple are found) for a specific app , but won't change from where the output will be displayed. OP wants to have the cable always connected to the integrated so he doesn't have to unplug and plug each time he boots to windows. Only laptops can be used as OP wants with your video. So for his specific demand the answer is still NO.
