Default Newbie Question - Haswell IGPU Disable?

This is a newbie question.

I'm new to systems that have both integrated graphics and a dedicated graphics card. I am using the dedicated graphics card.

Does it matter if I leave IGPU disabled or enabled in the BIOS?

Is there any advantage of using either setting?

If no monitor is connected to it, then the IGPU shouldn't be doing anything, correct? It does eat 64 MB of my RAM though.

Unless you're going to use the iGPU for eg. video encoding, there's no need for it to be enabled. Most motherboards automatically disable the iGPU when they detect that a dedicated card is installed.
