sandy bridge question
 
okay so i know that the new sandy bridge cpus i(X) 2XXX series have a video chip on the die as well as a cpu
and that there is acutally 2 different chipsets for this cpu
the H67 and the P67 chipset
the H67 will allow you to over clock the video processor on the die
and the P67 will allow you to over clock the cpu its self
here is the vid
so if you get an i7-2600 with a P67 chipset then
i will have a video processor that i wont be able to use
correct?

Right. You have to use a discreet GPU with a P67 based system. This is just like buying a motherboard without integrated/on board graphics, so you're not really losing out on anything.

Doubly so because I'm just not impressed with SB's integrated GPU. You're much better off getting a discreet card anyway.
