Need some advice about mbo selection, like is there a way to use i5 3470 graphics together with h77 mbo's as "second" video output resource .. so, when I'm on 2d enviroment i5 graphics enables, and when on 3d existing gtx560 enables? .. I do read about virtu mpv, but I'm not sure about motherboard support .. ga-h77-d3h would be enough? or z77 is better choice even not all z77 are virtu mpv supported .. suggestions?


thanks!

Both the H77 and Z77 chipsets have no onboard graphics (GPU) capability. They use the HD graphics built into whatever intel chip you purchase to put on the motherboard to provide video.

What Virtu MPV seems to do is take untapped memory and CPU cycles and dedicate them to a “virtual” GPU. This augments the HD graphics at the expense of other functions. It works with dedicated graphics cards as well (D mode).

The big difference between the two motherboards is that H77 has very limited overclocking capability. Z77 overclocking options are more varied and easy to use.
Your question should be “do I have enough processor to support this app?”
