Default System Downgrade Questions...

Hi again guys and Happy Veterans Day to all!

I do not game anymore [trying to save more time & money].

I just removed my lovely 560Ti and decided to use the onboard Intel 4000 on the Intel 3570k chip.

Ok, here are my downgrade questions...

1. Will I still be able to watch a Bluray movie with the same quality?
2. How many watts less will the Intel 4000 use compared to the 560Ti at idle and at 50% load?
3. Is my psychiatrist correct in assuming I will have far fewer violent impulses to rip people's heads off after abstaining from Call of Duty, Crysis, Sniper Elite 2, Bulletstorm, Grand Theft Auto III, Mortal Kombat, and Splatterhouseetc.?

Thanks for the good upcoming answers!

Soar

PS Ok, I don't see a psychiatrist and I don't have violent impulses to rip people's heads off very often. I was only joking on question 3...

1. As far as I know it should be fine.
2. 560Ti TDP = 170W, 3570k TDP = 77W

Should be the same quality, and yea less heat and less power. Although, it won't really change much on your power bill.
