Yes, you can use the iGPU of i7-2600, it has HD Graphics 2000.

When you find a good driver for it, can you please send a screenshot with GPU-Z?

one way to find is to try it yourself if it would work. The 2600K does have integrated graphics, but I'm not sure if Windows XP would work with your mobo.
