I would go with option A) myself. Except for installing an AMD graphics card instead of course
If you aren't planning on using the other GPU you may as well disable it and not have the drivers installed for it.
the thing is that i dont know if my motherboard lets me disable the integrated gpu. i have asrock a88m-g/3.1 motherboard...i will see in a few weeks if i can disable it or not. maybe the mainboard only lets me switch to pcie as primary adapter...in that case should i just not install the amd apu graphicdrivers and install the nvidia drivers instead?
also the asrock motherboard uses amd all in 1 driver packet. this is my first time with amd but i think that this driver package is force installing the amd graphicdriver
so the driver will be installed even when i disable it?
i mean there are other things in the cpu .- a pcie controller, a memorycontroller......are these things detected automatically or do these things require drivers? amds apu drivers? so do i have to install drivers for the cpu even when i disable the gpu?
what is the recommended way from amd?
If you pick custom install in the chipset driver setup you can select what components you install.
If you do happen to install the GPU driver you can remove it via the windows control panel / programs & features / AMD Install manager.
Yes you would need chipset drivers for the motherboard if you want it to work correctly.
