plug in video card, hook up monitor cable, your done.

bios reconizes that you have a video card and turns off intergrated video

Ya, as soon as you put in your new video card, your intergrated video card should shut off. Atleast it did for me.

EDIT: Well, did it?

Eh, it doesn't always switch like that. Actually most don't. You have to disable the integreted one and switch to the AGP/PCI-E one manually. Drivers are stored in the OS. But all changes to get them to switch need to be done in the BIOS. Should be under Integrated Devices or Advanced Settings.

Nah, no need for BIOS, Control Panel, and then disable your existing video card. Your computer will display it's post screen on the integrated card and will then switch to your add on card.
If you don't like this, go into BIOS and switch your default display adapter to the type of slot your added card is in, and your post screen will also be displayed on the added card.
Before you do all of this, make sure your computer recognizes the video card that you have added.
