    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?

    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.
