Default Connect Monitor to Mobo or Video Card

Hey guys,

This is going to be a really silly question. I recently built my own pc, and I was wondering if I should connect the hdmi cable from the monitor to the motherboard or the video card. Does connecting to either make any sort of difference?

Thanks,

video card. One on MOB is for use if you are using integrated graphics.
