    How to switch graphics card?


    I'm using an Alienware M17 laptop with a built-in GPU as well as an external GPU (EVGA GTX 670). When i was using windows 7, i could switch by disabling the built-in GPU and it will automatically switch to the GTX 670 as the default GPU, but this didnt work on windows 8. Anyone know how i can switch graphics cards on windows 8?

    You can choose which one to use in the bios settings.
