So i will buy a monitor for a desktop that i will get on August, but until i don't get it, i want to use the monitor as my 2nd display, but, if i run the game on the external monitor, will the HDMI port use my dGPU directly (950m) or will it continue to push to my iGPU?

Thanks.

Depends where you plug the hdmi port. If you plug the first and second display to you discrete gpu, both monitors will use the dGPU. However, if you plug the hdmi cable to the motherboard, then it will use the iGPU.
