Question Use just integrated GPU over dedicated

Hello,

I have a question related to why I can't use my integrated GPU over the dedicated one. To clear up my question, I have a PC I'll be using for 3d cad software. And I thought about putting a GPU I had laying around in it, but use it just for ram and the processing power it has, without physically plugging a monitor into it as I have a good enough integrated graphics card. Regarding the dedicated GPU it's a nvidia nvs 300, super old I know, but that's what I have to work with.

The problem is, when I plug that card in the pc, even though I have the monitor plugged in the integrated GPU, it doesn't want to post. If I pull the card out, everything works perfectly.

Does my idea even work or not ?

Thanks in advance
Roland
 
Integrated gpu gets disabled automatically once you put discrete graphics card in your pc.

Actually - I'm not quite sure about, what you're trying to achieve there.
If you want to use integrated gpu, why do you need discrete graphics card?
If you want to use discrete graphics card, then connect monitor to it.
