Gaming on Lenovo Y410P


Sep 5, 2013
Hello Guys!

I have a question about gaming on my laptop.
I turn off the graphics card for games that dont require high graphics (LoL, WoW, etc)

Is this good? or should I always use the GPU? I notice the pc gets warm even with the GPU off which i assume is normal.

I just think that if i use the GPU for my daily game session (play daily like 5-6 hours), ill end up burning out my pc in a couple months,

Any ideas or input?
