he wants to switch to his integrated graphics on his i5-3570k (HD 4000). Is there any way to do so in the nvidia panel or does he have to plug his monitor in to the motherboard instead of the graphics card?

Plug in card to mobo. Plug display cable into card and monitor. Plug in power connectors. Turn on. Install drivers. Play game. Woo.

I'm a laptop user, forgive me

Why would you need to plug the display cable into the graphics card if you re using integrated?

Why would he want to switch to using the integrated chip if he has a expansion card?

I don't think this is possible on a desktop without actually removing the card. I'm not aware of a way to do it anyway.

Wait, I misread. Why the hell would he want to use the IGP if he has a 660?

You could just plug the video cable into the motherboard, rather than the GPU. If the PC doesn't auto detect, you would just have to go into the BIOS and switch the "Init Display First" option.

Plug the display cable into the mobo and set the main graphics to integrated in the bios.

some stupid *** benchmark of his. He's dumb. But he's my friend and he wants do so, I googled and it said to simply plug monitor into mobo, but no clear answer. that's why I'm asking here

and a pracitical reason might be because one accidently destroys/loses or graphics card fails, so he may need to use his integrated.

To use the IGP you'll have to make sure it's enabled in the BIOS/UEFI and plug the cable into the motherboard. You plug it into the motherboard because that's where the output from the IGP is, it can't magically route though the 660.
