My current card (Nvidia GeForce 7600 GS) apparently overheats extremely quickly, so I'm trying to find a new card. My question is that I have ATI video on board on my motherboard. Is it at all possible for that to conflict with a Nvidia graphics card, or am I just really paranoid?

Paranoia !

pretty sure if the ATI on board video picks up that another Graphics card is their it would probably deactivate or something not sure ask in motherboards manufacture online support etc

I had ati 200 onboard graphics and installed nv 7600 gs card with 256mb, pc auto uninstalled drivers and no probs installing nv card. I haven't had any heating problems with it either, you may need to add a fan or two to your system. Nv control panel stinks.
