    Is it possible to change a controller with one that you buy (if you can) or another computer??

    And would you have to uninstall/remove the controller and its drives when you put in a card??

    Also is the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 Series also a Controller??

    Graphics Chip = Graphics Controller = Graphics card = Video card = GPU.

    Yes the ATI Radeon Xpress 200 is another integrated graphics chip/controller, not a very good one either but much better then the Intel one.

    Yes, you'd have uninstall the previous drivers, set the primary video card to AGP in the BIOS and install the new card.
