Disrespectful comments are unacceptable
You specifically said integrated graphic SUPPORT as you can see above. The CPU may have integrated graphics and the motherboard may have integrated graphics support. NOT the same thing. The first HAS, the second SUPPORTS it. Don't confuse the two.

Also the motherboard upgrade without reinstalling windows is a minefield. It might work, it might not but most of the time when it works it will show issues.
The elitist comment was for someone else, but I'm not surprised you took offense. Most forums tend to have a circle-jerk groups - lol

Clean install is no longer necessary when swapping major components for current Windows 10 builds.
False.

Swapping motherboards, there are 3 basic outcomes:
  1. It works just fine
  2. It fails completely
  3. It "works", but you're chasing issues for weeks/months.
We've seen all 3.


Anyone who says "it just works, all the time, every time"...is mistaken.

Please oh wise one, forgive me for I have sinned when I agreed with someone else's approach instead of yours.
You still have not answered about YOUR confusion with integrated graphics ON motherboard. Afraid to admit you are wrong?
I think these forums were better when you were just reading them. Have fun arguing

Go ahead.. Give yourself another pat on the back. You thrive on trivial things- lol

I have been on these forums longer than you have, but in a casual manner. You're giving this forum a religious approach. Whatever makes you happy. You're free to think your elitist approach to computing is the "right way to do things".
I totally understand that making even the tiniest shred of effort over the barest minimum isn't everyone's cup of tea. Different strokes for different folks.
