    Folks,
    A year or so ago I purchased Celeron 500 pc for my daughter to use at college. After she returned from I started to use the computer to replace my old Pentium-166 machine. We had some difficulties with windows 98 so I eventually upgraded to Windows 2000 Pro. Unfortunately it has a motherboard with integrated video/sound. I would like to upgrade the graphics performance so that I can play some of the newer games that need openGL. I know some people have had problems with conflicts when they have tried to add graphics cards to machines with the integrated motherboards. SO,can I just add a pci card and the machine/operating system will recognize it or do I need to disable the integrated video. When I check the BIOS under video adapters it gives me a choice of either a pci or agp card- so I guess the machine would recognize the card but would Windows find the card and load the appropriate drivers? Any advice would be welcome. Bill
