Post where you found that Dual Graphics works with a 260X, because it doesn't, only cheap entry level 250 and 240 cards.

Well ... it looks like the info I had was somewhat out of date.

Well... at least I got a new CPU out of the affair.

Dual Graphics is something that was always good in theory, especially in the mobile market. However on desktop parts the few extra dollars over a 250 for a 260X blows Dual Graphics out of the water. If you're using aftermarket cooling and have a bit of experience, disable the graphics core of the 7700K and overclock it for an even larger boost.
