Under "<<< PCI/PLUG AND PLAY SETUP >>>" select "Primary Graphics Adapter" and chage it from "OnBoard VGA" to "PCI". Be sure to plug the video card before changing this setting as it might not post.

I thought the on-board graphics could be disabled in the Device Manager, if I'm not mistaken.

PCI = add-on vga.

add the pci card first so it picks it up and install the drivers then reboot into the bios and disable onboard , then plug in the monitor in the pci card


Yes this will work. Actually the OS will work with both, the onboard vga and the add-on vga, with the onboard as primary. If you have to monitors then you could use both at the same time. I don't recommend this for gaming as the onboard-vga uses your system memory reducing your system's performance.

No, if you need to use the onboard vga in the future your OS will use them to configure the vga.

i was lookin at the specifications of the Power Colour Radeon 9000 pci and it says that it needs 250 watts of power for its minium, is this true becuase i have less than this, all the other PCI cards dont needs this extra power.
