I have just purchased a HP Prodesk 600 G2 and have the option of using the intergrated intel hd 530 graphics or using an asus gt 710 2gb ddr5 card. I only need to use 1 monitor and not sure if i should use the dedicated graphics or not. Most or the reviews I can find are for the older ddr3 version of the card which generally says the integrated would be better. Any help on what is the better option would be great.

System details
HP Prodesk 600 G2 SFF
I5 6500
8gb 2133 ddr4 ram (soon to be 32gb)
Intel hd 530 intergrated graphics or Asus gt 710 2gb ddr5
Samsung 120gb ssd
Seagate 480gb ssd
Wifi 6 ax200
Windows 10 pro

What exactly are you planning to do?


If the answer is anything but gaming(the GT 710 is not a gaming GPU and it only exists to give people more outputs) remove the GT 710 and just use the integrated GPU.

So downloaded the user benchmark tool and ran test on both configurations. Their really isn't alot between them and the intel graphics rated a little higher 4.6%, the gt710 scored 3.61%. The big difference was with the gt710 i could play the skill shooter game (perfectly) and I had no chance playing it on the intel hd530. So for now since it hasn't cost me anything I think I will leave the gt710 in the machine. If I had to buy this card I probably wouldn't and would look at something else that fits a sff desktop, but for now this will be fine to teach the kids how to use a pc.

Thanks and hope this info helps others looking at this card
