When I add a new video card, does it in essence power down the old (built in)one? Just wanna know because my old integrated card has deep conflicts with my Os.

Depends on the motherboard. Sometimes you will need to enter the BIOS setup and disable the onboard video, sometimes you need to use jumpers on the motherboard, sometimes it automatically disables, and sometimes you can't disable it at all.

Regardless, you will need to uninstall the video drivers in Windows.
